"I bought a Road Runner dread sized case which fits well. I keep a pad under the headstock along with the humidifier for the winter. Not sloshing about in the case and it's a good, solid case with solid latches."
"54 next month, but playing for just 3 years. Visiting friends at Christmas time a few years ago, sitting by the fire sipping wine and a guitar came out. No strumming sing-alongs, just nice soft playing while we enjoyed the company. That was the…"
"I don't consider myself a new player as I've been playing for nearly 20 yrs now. Over those 20 years I've stopped/started playing over and over again. Guitar was just something I did as a hobby and my frequency in playing…"
"For my Seagull performer I use the Martin SP series and I'm happy with those. But I actually like the 80/20 Bronze ones more than the phosphor bronze. But that's when I play live. It feels like the tone is longer and a bit warmer somehow.…"
"Writing as an absolute newbie with no prior musical knowledge I can highly recommend the Gibson Learn and Master GUitar DVD course. Steve Krenz is the instructor and does a great job of building basic skills, beginning with individual notes on each…"
"Yes, as far as I can tell, the Ibanez "Artwood" line runs the gamut of pricing and quality. Just the fact that it was so hard for me to find detailed info on this particular guitar turned me off before I ever really got turned on."
"I had an art wood back in the day and liked it a lot except for the aweful warp that ended up in the neck. I ended up selling it to finance another guitar...can't quite remember which one as I've had so many. You'd do fine…"
"Dunno ... I had a hard time even finding detailed information about that specific model on the web. At one point I thought it was a $1,000 guitar, now I'm not so sure. If it is, it's on the high end of Ibaenz accoustic…"
"Yeah, the truss rod adjustment along with new strings was the only thing that actually got it playable to begin with. Unfortunately, the saddle is glued in place, otherwise, I'd have already done that bit of amateur luthiering…"
"Since it is the Harmony, you could practice and make these adjustments yourself! Does it have an adjustable truss rod? And saddle replacement is simple - perhaps filing it down a bit?
Or - like I did with the "high-quality"…"
"Set up is just a way of saying that some adjustments be made to the way a guitar plays. I usually make these adjustments myself but a lot of people use a luthier to do this too. If your guitar is set up to your liking then live by the…"
I was surfing around the site and came across a few of your postings. Congrats on taking up the guitar! I have a "mentors group" that you might be interested in. I have a few instructional videos posted there and custom make them for interested learners. Thought you'd like to know.
LOL ... You've got GAS (guitar acquisition syndrome) ... I had an attack just today when I saw a very nice looking Larivee 09 model for sale online. It had a 1.75 nut width which I could live with, but the price of $1,200 (which was quite reasonable) is just too rich for my blood right now.
