"Thank you again! This little one doesn't EVER leave the house. No cracks - plays and sounds beautiful. I bought it from the same music dealer in Worcester where I ordered the Taylor, only several years earlier. The Martin was my first…"
"Thank you. This Taylor has a bit of a story. I ordered it from a music dealer in Worcester, MA. Bob Taylor got all excited when he got the order and decided he was going to make it new model. Two weeks later, he called back to let me know he was…"
Thanks for the great article on the 1974 Montfort Gibson SJ Deluxe. Really interesting the changes he made to the fretboard to achieve vibrato.
I owned an SJ Deluxe that I bought used in 1970 and never saw another one in all the years I owned…"
"When I was logged in yesterday, I noticed your video was right there along with the music videos. Not sure if there is a more visible way to promote it. I do remmber receiving what seemed like a very brief mass email within the community.
"I understand you are planning a trip to New Hampshire this summer. I am looking forward to meeting you at Acoustic Outfitters in Stratham. This is my music store of choice and it is owned and staffed by really terrific people...John"

One thing I would add to this discussion is the reputation of the…"
Although I only have one Martin, I thought I qualified to join the group. My Martin is a 1928 0-18 K2 (Koa all around) with curved fingerboard. I bought this instrument around 1988. It is absolutely a player with no cracks. I am careful to…"
Great article on Breedlove! I had the pleasure of attending the Extraordinary Experience in 2006. I own the most exquisite CM built to my specifications with wood I selected in the shop and made lifetime friends out there in Bend. I can't…"
Livingston Taylor has a very clever fingerstyle version of this song. I learned his version. Without an instrument in hand right now, I can't be sure if you could convert it to flatpick, but you sure could give it a try. Don't…"
Sorry it tooks so long to get back to you. Pics are great. Love the Breedlove walnut, it's a beauty. All fine looking guitars..... Didn't you say the K22 was your ex wife's? Still a beauty....
