"It is indeed a solid top (spruce) Excursion Natural Folk SG, and at $40 Canadian (about $12 US these days :) ), more than the all-laminate it's well worth it. ;"

Hey there....I really hear you on the arthritis in the hands. Brutally bad of late, especially when it is cold and rainy. But, I'm determined to get back in the mix. I've learned in the last 4-5 months that even when it hurts and it frigs up my playing, it's better than not playing at all.

Hang in there and have fun...

Okay, I hear you....anyway, if you decide to come over for the open mic, let me know and I'll show you around and maybe we can have a beer.....

Good idea.....I'm likely going the next few Fridays so let me know if you are going to drop in and we can connect.

Just curious, if you are a 'rookie' how come you have so many good guitars?

Hi James,

Yes, small world....and I see you do folk stuff as well. How are you enjoying your first year of guitar?
