You can say that again Ship. I don't understand why but it seems the most deceptive used guitar ads involve Washburns. This guy's claiming that his D21 is a Martin D28 copy! When I politely pointed out the difference he threw a fit. Going on and on about how he's 60 years old, been in a "gazillion" studios and traveled the world playing music so therefore I must have an ulterior motive for my lying!... and get this - while schooling me he pointed out that laminate vs. solid makes no difference whatsoever.

So anyway guys... how are the new owners doing? Any better than the previous?

I really think that's awesome CB. You guys have a "guitar spirit" that I think some people miss.

Hey... there's Dugly! Great to see you too bud. :)

Rocket my man. How goes it son? Ya want to see some tinkle huh? lol  I wasn't planning on relieving myself but I had an interesting exchange with a guy who's badly misrepresenting a Washburn on ebay yesterday. Just for kicks... does anyone know if we have a "Carter" from LA on here?

Hey, here's a cool memory of this forum from so many years ago. If I remember right (sometimes I do, sometimes I don't) CB and Shiner either started playing or got back into it around the same time and I thought it was just awesome how you guys were playing and studying together. Inspirational... and something of a forum hallmark to me. :)

Wow. I just stopped in here (after many years) and just look at all the familiar names! How many are still around from the good (lol) old days?

I've been keeping busy... lots of guitar building and such. What have you guys been up to? Everyone still nuts? :)

It's hard to tell by pics alone in this case but I think it's possible that those aren't cracks at all. By the look I might guess they're just grain anomalies - especially since the most visible one runs across the grain. If they are indeed repaired cracks in that location then there'd probably be very noticeable reinforcement inside. I don't think it would hold under string pressure without at least cleats. Look and/or feel inside the guitar in that area. Is there any wood glued across the cracks or is it smooth? If it's smooth then I'd be pretty sure the instrument is just fine.

Idol Series / question about intonation and stings
« on: August 28, 2010, 08:53:58 AM »
The reason we want newer strings when intonating is that old strings, due to corrosion and gunk build up, don't tune as accurately - and accurate tuning is paramount to accurate intonation.

I have an Acer Aspire One and I don't care at all for the 10.1 screen. The little screen seemed okay at first because I was so impressed with the ability of the machine and it's tiny size but it didn't take long to become aggravating. Sure you can zoom the screen but then you're scrolling up, down, left and right all the time. Also worth pointing out - I ended up traveling with a mini usb mouse because the mouse pad on the Acer just didn't work well. I'm looking now for a new traveling computer and it looks like it's going to be a refurbished Toshiba - 16 or 17 - $300.

I agree with Rocket - stay away from that one. It's been exposed to very low humidity for a good stretch of time. If there's a top crack then it's quite possible that there are also loose braces, warped neck, humped neck and/or a host of other overdried wood conditions.

Oh, and I know exactly where that guitar came from (we all do, right?. The owner of that place would sell his mother a house with a hole in the roof and tell her it's a skylight.

Ya know, I've been to everywhere you mentioned in he past couple years. Some of them multiple times. You know where the tunes are for sure bud. I even checked out the new Ground Zero in Memphis (thanks for the tip on that place a while ago by the way). They have a shot there called a Liquid Cocaine that has the ability to make a man fall right on his ass in the street. :-)

I was thinking about ya when I was in Ft. Lauderdale this summer. If it was anymore than a quick weekend trip I would've given ya a buzz. One of these days.....

As far as tuner buttons go - Not likely that I'll make those again, wayyy too much work for what they are. I do however have several unfinished sets in a box somewhere. When I get some time maybe I'll finish them up and post pics. What they'll fit on is already determined though so no choices there.

Tio - 8 in a 6' span would be ideal, and I like leaving room for growth. :-)  The only guitar I need is the next one

Thanks Tread - for the welcome back and the compliment.

Rocket - Thanks for the link bud. I should've thought of that.
