BEAUTIFUL sounding guitar and performance, BBG!!

I was going to guess at D16RGT, my former bandmate Simon played one for many years and I loved it. I kept trying to persuade him to sell it to me but he never would! Eventually his got kabonged by baggage handlers and the top got smashed after 15yrs or so faithful service and he replaced it with an Atkin which he had built for him, but the D16RGT always sounded like ďhimĒ. This one sounds like you though! Superb guitar.

no buying a guitar, selling it, and buying the same model back...


Would you marry a women, divorce her and marry her again?

The guitar in the performance has binding on the neck, so it can't be a 16 series, none on their site have binding.

I have nightmares about my ex-wife showing up on my doorstep and saying we're still married. I wake in a cold sweat and realize I've been divorced for 30 years, and have been with my second wife for 25.

But I still have trouble getting back to sleep, just in case the nightmare was real.

I do know people who have gotten divorced, and remarried each other after a few years. There's gotta be a better way.

Oddly enough my buddy Simonís D16RGT had an unbound neck and an Abalone rosette. It was a very early model though so presumably specs have changed. Looks much nicer with the herringbone rosette!

It's easy to quit smoking. I have done it a hundred times.

Wow - How about One Too Many Mornings, , , a song not yet nailed here, which would probably fit you (and my cans) well.


Oh yea!Good choice for BBG.Don't make him do it in open A though...unless he wants to.

Dylan's original recording is in an odd open A tuning.It's kind of tricky to copy the way he did it and get it sounding good.It was for me anyway.

Aha, , , as said, I'm behind with this one, but if bbg takes it in D, the open A lies, , , eeeeh open for you.
Why not go through it, flatbaroque.
2 versions would be de-double-luxe.


You just can't keep coincidences down. .
