Hogeye,

I'm interested in the Ray Whitley but your message box is full.

Danelectro had it right using drywall board for bodys.


Not all of them were built with masonite.

Sorry. I cleaned out the message box and will reply. I want to get rid of it so let's make a deal.

Aw, shucks😨 If the thread may be deleted, guess I'll get on the watch list, too. Actually, there are a couple points that I found interesting. First, would I take much notice if new instrument production came to a halt. Second, what about newer, computerized production methods. The production methods don't much concern me because I've got to where I only consider buying 'older' instruments. These days, they're sometimes classified as 'vintage', but that wasn't the case when I headed in that general direction. So if current production came down to a trickle, I doubt I'd notice until someone told me. There are plenty of 'older' guitars I'd love to own, and I expect I'll be unlikely to outlast my wish list. MANY Gibsons, the 'right' Martin, and a couple Guilds....

Lots of good thoughts here so I will kind of hijack the thread a bit and ask you all a couple of questions.

Do you think the advent of the CNC machines has had a big impact on the volume of instruments flooding the market? If so has it been a positive impact or has it been a negative experience? How about the emergence of the CITIES regulations on exporting guitars across international borders? Will this alter the types of materials all guitars are being made of? Will Martin, Gibson, and Taylor have a domestic guitar made from traditional wood and a export version made from politically correct wood? Now let's see who is brave enough to predict the appearance of the first printed guitar. It's only a program away....

I have a Brazilian Ray Whitley and feel guilty about it. Anyone interested.


Now there's some things to ponder on.
Gary
