I do not duplicate guitars.....If I have a dreadnaught, I don't look for another dreadnaught (unless, of course, it has 12 frets to the body, comes with a slotted head, and is in a different tonewood than my own dreadnaught, lol) for example, I now have 3 Washburn parlors....how did THAT happen????






I would truly like to help you achieve your goal,,,, so send me one of your parlors...[:D][:D]

No Problem, glad I can help in any way.

I did a review on my F10S in the forum a couple of years ago (link is below).

Another of the Washburn Orchestra, Folk, OOO size guitars is the F10S. I own one and like it a lot. It is a very nice guitar and can be found for less than 200.00 if you look around. It has a solid top and is pretty much a small bodied version of the D10S. They also made (might still) a F11, which is an all ash version like the D11. I own a D11 also and the quality is great. The only thing about it is it is really heavy.

Do you realize how many guitars you could buy with the money you would have spent on a car?

Fitz



About 8 Martins (unless it was that 1,000,000th commerative, then you could buy 4 Dodges for one Martin), or 45 Washburns, 150 Oscar Schmidts........Or,,,, one Esteban!!!!

That's the Truth.
I was at a store last week and I was about to buy a mandolin that I really liked, It was a great price and I had to have it.
Well I took it from the rack and was just about to take my jacket off when this salesman shouted at me to take my jacket off before I touch that. he Embarrassed me I front on 5-6 people.  well I told him he just lost a sale that was a sure thing and I walked out.  so all store fronts are not great it has every thing to do with PEOPLE.

Sure that's the truth Magoo... but maybe the boss had warned that new employee to protect the gear (you know the way training these days is MINIMAL?).  So... had you taken your jacket off FIRST there may not have been any problem (and the newbie behind the counter may not have felt as sick as he did after his first day).  Hey, I'm just looking at this from a different angle, no disrespect meant.

True customer service is a long dead art in most areas nowdays.  If the sales person had been a professional and interested in the customer, he would have walked up to magoo and quietly said something like would you like me to help you with your jacket while you can try that mandolin out?  He would have protected the merchandise, not embarrased the customer and most likely sold a mandolin and more. Problem is, most owners are interested in paying the lowest possible wages and the employee is just interested in getting that pay and getting the hell out of there.

Heck, I walked into the local Chrysler dealer a while back and the salesperson didn't know a thing about the van she was trying to sell me. She wasn't even positive about the make when I told her I was interested in looking at a Caravan.  I had to point them out to her while she stood there looking around with a lost look on her face.

Hey SteveC, ever been to Lake Metigoshe?  It is on the Canadian border north of Minot, NorDakota.  My best friend has cabin there.  

Magoo, I had no idea you were a Noofie!  Lol, I couldn't resist!

Glendive MT, Miles from anywhere!  No luthiers within hundreds of miles, that I know of.  Largest city is 100,000 and it is 215 miles away.

I went to College in Bozeman, MT for 3 years (Go Cats, boo Griz).  Worked in Mexico and Wentzville Missouri, or is it Misery, for a bit.  Now I'm a locomotive engineer back home.

I live about 40 miles as the crow flies from Metigoshe.  It is nice and hilly with lots of woods. Beautiful area.

General Discussion / Can anyone tell me anything about the D-130 ?

Looks very similar to my D11.

North Dakota, USA...I can see Canada if I look out the door and the end of the world is about halfway across the back yard.  That's OK though, cause it's frozen over right now[:(]...

General Discussion / Strings on new OE-30/ bk -what size?
« on: December 24, 2007, 01:10:14 PM »
From what I have seen, it pretty much depended on what was on hand at the time the guitars were strung up.  My OE30DL had 11's on it when I got it, but I have seen posts where people got anything from 9's to 11's. I have very heavy (13-57) flatwounds on it now, but that's what I like. Most people I have talked to use 10's or 11's.

By the way, if your's is anything like mine, you'll love it! Good luck.
