"Nice guitar! Describe the sound -- it has been years since I played an archtop. My first guitar was a cheap Wards archtop made by Kay. It was all-plywood, I'm sure. Yours was made back when Kalamazoo was still turning out pretty good guitars."

"I have the Gibson version of that.  1962 ES125T.  Traded a moped for it in the early /mid 80's.  This is an actual picture of my guitar, I had taken the picture on a tile floor, I just removed the background. "

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?
