Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Recorders
« on: December 24, 2012, 10:40:04 AM »
First, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.      Now, a question. I ask it here, as there isn't a record section on the website. I've been thinking about buying a small recorder. Just to play around with, and maybe make a few CD's for friends. I would like to record just the guitar, and my voice. Something along the lines of some of Johnny Cash's last sreies of recordings. I've been reading reviews of some of the different brands, but don't really know that much. Have any of you used a recorder that will give a quality finished product? There are some that will burn the CD after you have finished. Thanks in advance for any replies.

""My guitar I really have gas for lately is a Festival. Can never find one in the stores""

Tom, I went into my local dealer a couple of weeks ago, just looking around. They have a new EA20. I didn't look at it real close. They have a website, I think. It's Baker Piano and Music, Gadsden, AL I don't even know the price. The original owner, and 2 of the long time salesmen that I knew have died in the last year, and I don't know the people in ther now. If I go back in, I'll try to remember to check the price, and full model number. You might be able to call them, or email them.

The latest copy of Acoustic Guitar Magazine has an article about Regal guitars. At one time Regal was purchased by Lyon and Healy. There are a few pictures of some Washburn bodies, with Regal necks. Short article, but an interesting read.

Announcements & News / Forrest Lee Bender

The latest Acoustic Guitar Magazine had this Washburn listed in the latest offerings from the NAMM show. I haven't ever heard of Forrest Lee, and don't think I would use a b-bender, but thought I would post in case anyone would be interested. The guitar is a cutaway acoustic electric dreadnaught, with a built in b-bender. Seems interesting. The only guitars I've seen before with a bender built in were solid body electrics.

Post your thoughts on Banjos & Mandolins / Death by banjo

A friend, that works at one of the local music stores, posted a link to a newspaper article on Facebook yesterday. It was about an old man who killed his wife with 2 banjos. He started beating her with the first one, until it tore up. Then used the second one to finish her off. The police didn't have any reason for the killing.

General Discussion / Color of type

I just logged onto the new forum look, and with the color of the type, or background coloe, it is hard to read. Can you possibly change it to something that old eyes can make out. The old look was easy to read. Black letters on a white background, maybe.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Non Washburn

Can anyone tell me if the red, white, and blue guitar that Buck Owens played on Hee Haw was an acoustic electric? I've been watching old Hee Haw reruns on RFD-TV, and I noticed what looks like a volume knob on the lower bout. But I don't see a cable running from the guitar to an amp. Anyone know anything about these guitars? Thanks.

General Discussion / Strings
« on: April 17, 2011, 07:24:29 AM »
This isn't a post about a brand preference or gauge preference of strings. Just something to think about. I read an article in the latest Guitar Player mag about Tommy Emmanuel. He said that he had noticed that when he was using one brand( Daddario) exclusively, that his guitar would adjust to that particular string, and lose its crispness. He changed strings everyday, and plays about 300 shows per year. He likes the sound of new strings. He changed to another brand, and his guitar regained its crisp, high sound. Now he alternates between 5 different brands,
   Sorry for the long post. I thought it was something to think about. He plays better, and knows a lot more than I do. What do some of you think about this thought?

I answered a question, in 2 seperate categories, and was told that your flood control was on. That I could not post twice with 90 seconds of each other. If you don't want any posting, just say so.

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Childbride- Recording
« on: December 17, 2010, 06:28:45 PM »
I didn't want to derail the microphone thread, so I started a new one. You(childbride) mentioned a Tascam recorder in the microphone thread. How do you like it, and is it easy to use? I've never used one, but have been thinking about getting a Tascam DP-02, to play around with. It has a CD burner built in, so I could burn a CD if I liked what I did. Thanks!!

I might have asked this before. Will a K&K pickup work alright on a classical guitar? Thanks!

Acoustic Guitar Players Post Comments & Questions / Cherokee sighting
« on: September 04, 2010, 09:15:56 AM »
I usually watch Country Family Reunion on RFDTV on Friday nights. Last night I noticed a Bourgeois Washburn Cherokee on the show. It was one of the Opry singers guitars. It was on a stand, so I don't know which performer had it.

Now that we have a repair section, we need Dreadman to stop by, and fill up the section.

I kind of got a chuckle at an ad in a local swapper I picked up today. The ad was for an Estabon guitar, complete with COA. Now true, I've only played 1 Estabon in my life, but it was so bad, I don't think it needed any kind of certificate with it.

Check this website and see what you think. I would hate to try and do a refret.
