Takamine Jumbos

Does anybody own one of these jumbos? I am a fan of jumbo guitars (I own a 1975 Guild F50R) and would love to try a Takamine. I am new to the Takamine community having just purchased a 2001 Ltd. Edition which is in the process of totally surprising me.See More

Bone Versus Ivory---Bridge Pins and Bridges

Although this may be an old and perhaps worn out topic, I am seeking out opinions and observations regarding bone/ivory bridge pins and saddles. Has anyone compared bone to ivory and if so, what observations have you made. I am new to this community so please forgive me if I am 'beating a dead horse'. Thanks

Hi Peter !

Your name  a girlfriend,and a road  manager  or two ago were in the conversation.

It seems that there a lot of names and news and reconnections that came up just in the past 30 days, It's one of those Six Degrees of Separation Moments that made me go online looking for you. I like Jung's Synchronicity to try to explain the series of events that brought me to this website . In this case an internal event concurs with an external event OR?

Six Degrees of Separation explores the existential premise that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else in the world by a chain of no more than six . 

I hope we can talk.

Oh I have Epiphone DR-500R a $550.00 guitar but the one I have is heaven sent. I tried out 12 to 15 DR-500's and the one I have is in a different league!

Hi Peter,
Welcome to the Gibson group! Hope to be "talking" to you there soon!
I notice you have two Guilds. We also have a Guild Owners Group you might be interested in...here is the direct link:

I have two Guilds, a 1980 JF30 and a 1980 JF212XL 12 string. Thanks, Edward
