"I'm with the others in this thread--I don't know why this site has to be jettisoned in favor of something that is clearly less functional.  I mean, can anyone explain why this is *really* occurring?"

I have been subscribing to Acoustic Guitar for quite some time and just recently joined the club. I have been playing for approximately 20 years and absolutely love the guitar. My musical tastes include rock, blues, folk, and some country.

I played in some bands when I was younger but today I may jam with some friends but for the most part playing and collecting guitars is my hobby. Glad to be aboard!

Been playing over 30 years, mainly electric and some acoustic. I am now training myself in classical. A real challege to unlearn bad habits ;)

Looking to connect with other players that have crossed over to classical guitar.

Nice to be here!

I'm looking for the model number of the Aria acoustic classical guitars made in the mid to late 1960s. Does anyone happen to know where I can find this info? It was my first guitar and I want to try to find one again. Thanks.

Just wanted to say how much I enjoy the magazine and the online forum. The magazine is very well laid out and the articles I have read to date are always interesting and of appropriate length. The layout and functions of the website are the best I have seen. Thanks for the quality and attention to detail.
