"That is $6000 worth of guitar. Love to  have one but had to pay Uncle Sam again this year and I am not good enough to justify spending that kind of money even if I could."

"Lucky you! I am looking for a good 12 string right now. I had a 78 Texan that was great but I sold it. I know the Epiphones are a great choice."

Joe Allen replied to Elton Bloye's discussion Strap pin issue in the group "Seagull" Spoken Here ... (also fluent in "Godin" Gab)
"I just put one on my Martin where Jud put his. You can grind the strap pin down to the correct angle before you install it but that does not make it work any better. Just drill a small pilot hole so you don't take a chance of splitting the wood…"

"The 12 string maple sounded great. I was out looking today and did not find any 12 string Seagulls. I found a nice sounding 80's Alvarez and a Mexican Martin but not what I want. I have a spruce top S6 along with a Martin D-1 and a Gibson J-45…"

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" !!!

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.
