"Some amazing finds here, yassir!  An Esteban with rhinestones.  And plastic.  And the unique Terlet model with a bigass sound hole so the noise can carry all over the  house.  My grandpa played one like that, sitting…"

"I call my "studio" the 'tar Pit (it's where all my 'tars are) to avoid any trace of pretentiousness.  My wife just calls it my music cave."

"Craig - I had one of this old record players with a 16 rpm setting (Philco, I think).  I was told it was used for spoken recordings.  Audio books?  Recordings for the blind?  I never saw a 16 rpm record, has anyone here?"

"Bow-shur or boo-shay.  Hmm.  Well, I do know the mastermind behind Seagulls and other great guitars is spelled Godin, but pronounced "Go-dahn" with a soft "n" at he end.  It's easier to deal with German names…"

"FloridaGull - The hibiscus reminds me of the one I had in my front yard when I lived in Sunny Diego for many years.  Now, it's evergreens and tumbleweeds!"

"Charles - Interesting bracing with the split ends.  And I love the clipper ship (windjammer?) through the sound hole.  I have a windjammer painting that looks similar, painted by my great-grandfather who saw them as a young man."
