I've never bothered to look. Is this the 12 string from eBay?

What'd you get the 6'er for? e-me if I'm being too nosy. Can't wait to hear her! Took some pics of my Prairie and am delighted to report that she is responding VERY WELL to her papertowelbaggie therapy and now has NO BUZZING! I have to check the others, so fingers crossed!I'll post the pics I took, but she is scalloped on the ends as they meet the sides, yes. I gottta refil the other chirren,so brb...

ok, the J28-12is a little better, but still bad buzzing around the 12th. The top is RISING, however. Good. Bracing onthe 12 is so thin that it looks like it becomes part of the top almost! The J28 6'er is still buzzing, but not as bad and top is also rising but the braces are like the Prairie. Not scalloped. Your turn, Pike!

Congrats Pike.  Sounds like another gem.  I'm with Dread, the heck with work. [:D] But since I have no work to go to my opinion on said topic is worthless.  [:D][:D]

Congratulations Pike. I've seen the guitar in Teagles book, but will look again. On a side note, how many guitars do you have? And do you play them all regularly. If I'm being nosy, you don't have to answer. But take a short break, and play the new guitar some.

On the same page, page 120, that Your guitar is on, in the lower left corner. Have you ever played one of the Washburns with the Stephens Extended Cutaway?

I never played one. I remember seeing one when the were introduced, and have seen a couple of players on tv. I kind of like the peghead. If you want to see one that looks bad, check out a Gibson Melody Maker peghead. I got a good deal on one. Gibson usually glues wings on the sides of the peghead, but this goes straight up. Doesn't look great, but plays and sounds great. Faded paint job, one pickup, a volume and tone knob, and input jack.

Nor am I.  It's the key reason I've not bought another EA20 guitar.  I guess I'll have to save my pennies for one of them EA52SWCE guitars.  Darn the luck! [}:)]

I would definitely lose one of my dreads for one of those, but I really want a thinline. [:D]
