Someone commented about Breedloves - very nice - Wolfe Guitars (the Willow Tree from the earlier comment) is a volume Breedlove dealer - here's a link to some of thier OM's:

They have at least 5 - $789 - $2095...

Also:

A 2007 Mermer Autumn Star:

From a luthier in Melbourne, FL - a bit pricey at $4795, but very pretty...

 

Enjoy!

Michael - Just read your post re: an OM with good/excellent playability - I don't know if you'd consider a used guitar, but check this beauty out:

Made in West Virginia!  Here's a pic or 2:

 

I'd suggest looking at a Seagull Artist Folk or a Walden CO2000, but your tastes/budget seem higher-end than that...have you checked out Jay Lichty's page here?  He's a NC luthier, and builds beauty's as well...

Good luck, and have fun searching!

Michael, I use a Boss looper RC20xl....it has a higher bit/sampling rate than the digitech and works pretty nicely...lots of storage for tracks.

Thanks michael for the invite. I do enjoy talking with other musicians. mike i also have a snark a friend gave me, twice it broke had to glue it  back together with JB weld works ok . It broke around the  swivel joint now it doesn't swivel any more. It tunes ok , but i would never buy one, i'll stick with my IMT 500  intelli works great. The only thing with this one is you have to be careful of the spring on the clamp try not to let it get too close to the head of the guitar or it will mar the finish .                Rob

Hi all, i've been playing around with alternate tunings  for awhile now and have wrote some nice tunes , mostly songs about the Lord. But i like alternate better than standard tuning any day. I'm  a finger picker by  far,i can use a pick if i have too.i've been messen with dadgad for some time ,but my favorite is open D tuning.another tuning i like is CGcgad a nice sounding ,i've got about 6 different tunings i use .i got these from mark hanson's old  alternate tunings book. great book. I hope all is enjoying all the gifts of music God gave us.               Rob

Hello Michael, Thank you for the welcome.  I have only dabbled with the DADGAD tuning, but I am enchanted by the sound of it, and I am anxious to explore it in some depth.  From reading through your discussions, it appears that you have attracted some very talented and knowledgeable members to this group.  I read some very informative exchanges, and you are compiling some quite valuable resources.  I look forward to spending time among you all.

I saw your post about doing Texas Swing in DADGAD. Interesting idea. Texas Swing uses a lot of Major6th chords. with a 6th string root it is typically a raise 2&3 voicing(2nd and 3rd chord tones are raised an octave from closed spelling) Standard tuning makes this easy to finger. I could see doing it in EADGAD. Then, a G6 would be fingered like a root a minor with a G in the bass. Let me know how it works out!

Hey Michael, thanks for the friend request. This should be an interesting experience being in this group. DADGAD is a geat alternate tuning to play in. Take care and keep in touch.

Thank you, Michael. If you're interested, I suggest you google "braguesa", or "viola braguesa". It's a tradicional guitar-shaped instrument, with 5 courses, tuned (lo to hi) DABDA.
If you're interested in deep Celtic tradition, bagpipes and the like, google "pauliteiros". Welcome to the enchanted world of fairies, witches, dwarfs and other Celtic wonders!

Hi Michael,
I received a message from you, inviting me to join a DADGAG group. Thank you.
My tuning is, from low to high, DABEAB. Not quite the same... And you will probably find my guitar as strange as the tuning. But, in this country, we do have a Celtic tradition, which is more than 2 000 years old. Bagpipes, and so on. So, thanks for the invitation and, if you have the time, have a look on my page, and tell me what you think...

Hello Mr. Michael Robertson,
Thanks for your welcome and this excellent group. DADGAD is one of my favorite tunnings --fatastic and misterious. I wish I can write my own music in it someday. I am willing to share my experience here.
PS. This is a hello from another side of the earth:)Thank God for the internet.

Thanks for your welcome.
I've come to DADGAD with Laurence Juber and now, I have my acoustic Epiphone dedicated to this tuning : it's sound so beautiful !!
Hello from France ....

The festival was excellent. Very humbling to be surrounded by so many exceptional players.

Here in Italy all good.....the Azzurri not so good :) They are paid to much during the year and maybe they did party to much...lets hope for the last one.

You're welcome Michael, thanks for the friend invite.
I'm from Italy and I use DADGAD as my main tuning, also dropped D..sometimes...
I play celtic music both fingerstyle and flatpicking, but what I love the most is to do back up to Irish Music.
Ciao da Milano

Thanks Michael, we are coast to coast already, and I know David from Peninsula Fingerstyle.

Thanks, Michael! I am a rank beginner in DADGAD, just beginning to peck at Doug Young's book.

My pleasure. I love DADGAD. My harp guitar sounds like it was made for it. :)
