Well I should have my newest guitar acquisition in a little more than a week from now. It is a blue with white Fender Stratocaster circa 1978-1981. Basically it is complete EXCEPT it needs tuners, strings and a bridge and tremelo unit. It is a little beat up, but I don't expect perfection for the $20 it is costing me.
I wonder how it will play, what it will sound like when I get her fixed up and in playable condition. I know it will cost me upwards of $200 to put tuners, and a…Continue

I'm new to Acoustic Guitar and to the community. I'm trying to find classifieds, but am having a hard time locating them... can someone point me in the right direction? I'm looking for a Sound Seat. Anyone know where I can get one? They aren't being made any more.

I recently had an opportunity to visit with the staff of Garden and Gun Magazine in their Charleston, SC
office. They are a great group of people who are passionate about putting out a great publication. They decided to do a feature on Lichty Custom Acoustic Guitars and the response has been tremendous.

Hey this is Rev. Matt. Okay all, at one time earlier we have struggled to figure out that one chord and then later on end up kicking ourselves in the butt when we realize...that's all it is! A prime example of this (which was also the same way I found out about this) was when I just happened to figure out to play a B-suspended chord and then slide down toward the headstock on the fretboard. Well anyway not only can i apply that to Open the Eyes of My Heart, I can also…Continue

Airline flight guitar horror stories are legion, so I thought I'd tell one with a happy ending.
I recently flew from San Francisco to Washington, DC on Virgin America -- yes, the airline with cocktail lounge lighting on its planes, which can be a bit disconcerting at 8:00 am. After a warm greeting from the gate attendant, who blithely waved me on board with two carry-ons, I was asked by a flight attendant to gate check my gig bag, in which reposed my Taylor 612 Kathy Mattea…Continue

I started messing around a few months ago on an entry level Gibson Maestro guitar, that was given to me. When I got it, it needed a new 1st string, some new bridge pins just to get it into playable shape. Well I did that, then discovered that Hammerons and Pull offs were just weak to non existant on this instrument as well as slides. So I started closely examining the guitar for ways to improve it.
The Maestro I have has a solid spruce top and mahogony sides and back. Okay…Continue

I continue to search for a T. Haruo acoustic guitar, preferrably a Model 150, to replace one that has been lost. Does anyone out there in the Acoustic Guitar Community have any idea as to where one might be found?
