"Yes, that old Martin could be a restorer's dream if the price stays that low."

Your SIlvertone is a Sears brand made by Harmony...Look how much it looks like my old Harmony Jumbo!

I forgot to say I like your collection as well.

I like your EKO.

 

I'm a big fan of smaller guitars, especially ones with 1.75 nut.

Hi Robert thanks for the welcome and the comments about my small collection of guitars. I hope it grows some in the future.   :-)

I'm watching the classifieds and eBay for a guitar to do my first fixer upper project, so I'll be a newbie when I do get one to work on. I've done a lot of woodwork and formica\laminate work in the past but nothing compared to restoring and working on guitars.

 

Check out my group Small Body Guitars sometime if you get a chance.

 

I'm in Florida as well up in Pensacola. I worked a year in Tampa and a year in St. Pete back in the 70s. Love that area especially Treasure Island where I lived back then.

 

Thanks again;

Gary

Hey Robert!  Welcome to the Godin group ... thanks for joining!

Thanks Robert.  I agree that patience is probably the most important thing.  I also have an old Silvertone that had the saddle glued in (it's a Harmony product too) and I was a little too hurried resulting in a shattered bridge with only about half of it actually out of the saddle when I gave up on it for a while.  I'll look into the informational resources you gave me.  Thanks again.

Just this weekend, I traded for a Godin 5th Avenue CW Kingpin II - check it out in the "Seagull Spoken Here" group.  Come join us - this group is for all Godins - well, at least the acoustics and acoustic/electrics - Seagull, Simon & Patrick, Art & Lutherie, Norman, and LaPatrie.  The 5th Avenue is probably the only Godin that "qualifies", since it is a real acoustic hollowbody archtop to begin with...which "flavor" of the 5th Avenue do you have?
