"My current favorite is Hot Grips .88 Green different sizes = different colors. Seems easier to hold onto in those cold clubs or outside gigs. I'm gonna try the V-picks and Gator picks if I can find some local (Nashville)"
"You're in luck ! this happened to me the other day with my Gibson J45 . Since it was just a Gibson I clipped the pins off even with the bridge and just took a nail and "punched " them on through by tapping with a hammer .…"
"so whats next, no strings so it doesn't put undue stress on the neck? come on Martin it's a guitar not a Faberge egg. Made to be enjoyed and played not hung on the wall (or put in a case and looked at) it's like the lines on…"
"OK so I wanted a Martin soooo bad I bought a 96 DC1 for basic chump change money. About a month ago I asked what I could get for under a thousand on here and got a lot of great answers including don't waste my money on anything less than a d-28…"
"I really appreciate all the comments. I will get one of the afore mentioned Martins and report back with pictures .i am looking for that "sound" that is unique my Gibson j45 has it and my Washburn has it and I know there is a Martin out…"

"And while you're here come see all the vintage guitars downtown and walk up and down Broadway and listen to the street pickers or pop in Tootsies for a bevearge and music on stage ! Namm is just a highlight in a list of highlights in Nashville.…"
"Michael Berish I'm lucky enough to live near Nashville so going to the NAMM show is a no brainer for me. I went last year and had a ball. Yes you can pretty much play everything there within reason and several jams broke out while i was there.…"
"I went there last year and got my picture taken with chum lee

"That's it I 'm sure you can catch a rerun over the next week if you just run a search on your DVR lol, Speaking of Pawn Stars I know it's not acoustic talk but they had a guy bring in Mary Ford's 1961 Gibson Les Paul;…"
"I saw on pickers last night they found a ladies archtop circa 1935 Martin and bought it for $100. Had it appraised for $300 by parting it out. Wonder what it would have cost to restore? The appraiser said it would be 10 plus thousand in pristine…"
Howdy, JR. I haven't put up pics but I'll take one later and send to your email address, if you don't mind sharing. Mine is email@example.com
The reason is that I use my Kodak pic program to make my crappy dial-up send good images. The fix my guitar got is quite simple though...a structural bridge across the soft spot just to flatten out the top so it wouldn't move more. I don't think constant loosening and tightening of the strings is good for the bridge, so this holds it in place 'til I get the final fix together. That may never happen because the L0 sounds true, but a neck reset is pending. so I may have that brace pattern restored and make sure I use 11's or lighter when I string it up. Later, Dave.
