"I've never really sold a guitar before. Did a little trading at a local shop, but never sold one to someone online. I'd like to say that Florida Gull made the process effortless. I'm really pleased that he could give the GAD-30R a…"

"I have one. GAD-30R Bought brand new from Sweetwater in '11 or '12. Looks like brand new in the tweed case. Beautiful guitar. I just never seem to take it out of it's case."

"Thanks J. I have a DN3 that I love but wanted something smaller to take with me. I'd been looking at the Mini for 2 or 3 years and finally took the plunge. I fell into a great deal so I couldn't pass it up."

"My favorite for acoustic seems to be the Fender thin picks in I think they call abalone. But I have to say, Vinnie Smith makes a bunch of different V-Picks that are awesome."

Connected?

Driving through the storms yesterday, I had plenty of time to think and I guess reminisce. One of the songs from Pink Floyd's the Wall came on the radio and it took me back in time. Gotta love it when that happens. It always amazes me when someone in a different country, of a different age, can write a song and it feels like it was written for you. Roger Waters to me, is a brilliant, gifted, troubled, angry man. Kind of unsettles me that his music, more accurately, his words connect with me.…

New discovery!

This isn't really about acoustic guitars, but here goes. I've been on a kick lately where I think I want to get a new amp. I have a great little Marshall MG15DFX. Sounds good. But I've been obsessed with getting a small tube amp. It's really ridiculous since I just bought a new Taylor DN3. It's my new favorite. Most expensive guitar I've owned. I have found that sometimes, I just open the case to look at it. Crazy! I know. But I started thinking about this amp thing right before I bought the… Continue

Facing my fears

I had become fairly obsessed by the time I had been attempting to play for a couple years. I was practicing about 30 minutes a night 5 nights a week. It was even getting to the point that my wife and son actually stayed in the room with me while I practiced. My wife inadvertently helped me in my obsession by buying me books, and strings and picks etc for birthdays and Christmases.

I was successful in quitting smoking though, thanks to the guitar obsession. Whenever I had the urge for…

My lifelong obsession with these pieces of wood.

I have been obsessed with guitars for as long as I can remember. A friend of my Dads brought one to our house when I was around 5. I thought he was some kind of god or magician. The sounds coming from that acoustic amazed me. It hasn't stopped amazing me.

As I grew up, anytime I would hear songs with loads of guitar, I would stop and just listen. Not really good during work or school or in the middle of conversations. My friends kind of got used to it though. We never really had the…
