"You want to see a beauty that sounds great take a look at my Gibson J-45 Custom. Solid Sitka spruce spruce top and solid Rosewood back and sides. I have a Mahogany back Martin and it is not even close to the Gibson. IMG_0533.JPG"

"I was hooked the first time I went to a show with a friend and saw the Steeldrivers. I listened to country and had enough Taylor Swift and that trash. I got into Bluegrass and love it. I play guitar and am still learning but I enjoy it!"

Thanks for the welcome Joe.

I have only been playing for 3 years and am still very much a beginner.

I was very reluctant to join any of these groups due to my inexperience and low skill level.

However, I decided to take the plunge and see what transpires.

Thanks Joe, mine is a 1980 as well. When I met it in 2009, loved the blonde and then picked it up and felt the flippin weight and thought " wow this is a beast ". I love the sound and it's structural integrity as well. I use Martin Marquis phosphorus as well and am happy with those. How but the resonance duration if you strike a chord and then put the guitar on its stand ? It rings for like 90 seconds it seems. It's my first Guild but surely not my last. I have been playin a mid 70's Madeira since like 91' (Korean Guild import) and always liked it til I bought the G37. Thanks for the comment and have a great weekend. Playin with friends around a fire tomorrow night...Keep on strummin" !!!

Joe,
I'll comply as soon as I can. (I'm technologically challenged, so my daughter will have to show me how to post a picture next time she's here from Westerville; usually once or twice a month.)
I'm going to go play my sweet Betsy for a couple of hours.(I'm retired after working 40 years and I'm trying to play 5 or 6 days a week, to make up for all the times I didn't play when I was working) My brother-in-law loves the Brooks & Dunn song, Neon Moon, so I'll have to go brush-up on it. Not too long ago, I could play and sing it fairly well.
