I agree, my wife supports me more then anyone I have ever been with. she's always kicking me in the ass, telling me to answer email and comments.

Yes, Michael....we leave for Lakeland in about 2 weeks and will be there about 5 months; I'm on sabbatical.

As mentioned in previous posts, I'm dedicating myself to writing, composing and recording original songs. In addition to the song posted on my AGC page, I have 5 more completely finished and awaiting recording, 4 with lyrics and partial music, and 3 with lyrics only.

I got my new recording gear recently, but will only set up in FL where I can leave it set up for 5 months. Looking forward to the challenge.

No, my D16 is the gloss top with satin back hog.  Age toner is used with the expensive Martin and the D16 is not one of the special Martins.  It is now in the shop for a setup.  It was high when I got it several years ago and finally got to get the nut lowered a bit.

It is a 2011 or 2012 D35 that I changed strings. I will also change strings on my D16,

Thanks.  

Actually I've been playing for 30 years on and off, mostly off.  I picked it up again about 3 years ago.  I wish I could play the stuff I could back then, lots of old Rush, arpeggiated or rhythm only, no leads.  That stuff can be hard.  on't have the time or patience now.

Most of my guitars are rescues, didn't pay much for most of them.  A lot of odd and unique stuff.  Don't have the money for the good stuff.  I'm lucky to have to Seagull Maritime's and a couple of old Yamaha's.

The only thing I haven't been able to find is talent!  And my memory sucks.  The right hand knows how to form or learn many chords but the mind doesn't know/remember what to do with it.

Hi Michael.Thanks for inviting me to be your friend.l bought a dcpa5, so l can plug in and play live.lf your thinking of buying a guitar, don, t try in London, l really battled to even find a decent music store.You can buy on amerzon, but with no trail and l like to test them first.Nice collection of guitars you have there.

I don't think any guitar ever "needs" to leave - unless it attacks one of your other guitars, like Jud's Harmony did to his 1st Martin... ;-)

At 8:46am on May 15, 2013, FloridaGull said…

Is this it?

455CE 12 String

You may have to sell the S12 - and, take an updated picture...

I still think a Craviola would sit nicely on the wall directly above the mantle...and look interesting... ;-)

Sideways, I think...

Oops, meant to leave this link to the Mass St. Music Acoustic Pickup Test Drive... this is the type of demo that I did in person, and wouldn't it be nice, if all Music shops did something like it?
