Jon Lloyd replied to Bobaz Zabob's discussion Yamaha GC 42S Classical Guitar

Jon Lloyd replied to David r La Fountain's discussion Pickup for a Taylor 320 acoustic.

Jon Lloyd replied to Bob Edwards's discussion Camp Guitar: Yamaha APX500 <vs.> Ovation Applause Baladeer (AE128) in the group Round Back Guitars
"Hey Bob- Pretty complex question.  I am by no means an expert but I will throw in my 2 cents.  I'm a Lake Rat and did my share of camping for a long time before I bought my little house on the lake.  I play a lot out there now…"

Jon Lloyd replied to Antonio Cotichini's discussion About microphones in the group Singers
"I have a couple of SM-58's and I agree.  They are a great mic.  BUT...My favorite mic is the Electrovoice ND 767A.  It's kinda like instruments sing through one and decide whats best for your style.  For me, it's…"
