19 May 2013 - 05:49 AMThe wife and I attended a Trop-Rock party yesterday at which there was the usual local musicians playing and a 'special guest' who flew up from Fla. He had an unusual soft case that immediately said 'collapsable neck travel guitar' to my astute eye. Sho' nuff. A Voyage-Air guitar. Sounded okay with the Sunrise soundhole pickup and Bose PA system.
Here it is http://www.voyageairguitar.com/
I think one of these in graphite comp would be the ultimate travel guitar....IF that is what one needed.
18 May 2013 - 07:12 PMJust a question about the style designation of this '93 J-45 on Fleabay....
What does the Style AT on the label stand for? I would guess that it has something to do with the natural top...
10 April 2013 - 07:05 PMHey all! Just a liitle story about seeing singer/songwriter Robbin Thompson in solo concert in my 'neck of the woods' last Sat nite. Great show, in a 250 or so seat, modern auditorium with a great sound system. Robbin T. is a semi-local performer from back in my high school and college days who hails from Richmond,Va mostly after migrating from the Northeast.
He has some late 60's-early 70's hits and claim to fame as co-writer with one of the Eagles and being a member of Bruce Springsteins "Steel Mill Band"....
To the point....He mostly played a blonde J-200 and an all Koa cutaway acoustic. The sound was awesome with a great vocal mix.
It was so awesome that I had to ask him(by email) about the vintage, model, and pickup system (gear-head that I am) !
Quite interseting reply...
"the J-200 is an interesting question. its a 1989 neck and a 1992 body i think. got it when I was a gibson endorsee. the body cracked and they repaired it by putting a new body on the old neck.
the koa guitar is a taylor mid 90's. both have fishman systems in them"
I will say that from my seat, bothe guitars sounded great! The Koa Taylor being more bass and middy that the brighter J-200.
Here is a clip with the J-200....an earlier show but some representation of his style...
25 March 2013 - 06:24 PMDon,t understand the language but music is universal. Looks and sounds like a good time.....
04 March 2013 - 04:34 PMJust clicked on this 30's black L-50 archtop link and .....Holy Hell! What kid got away with the runaway Dremel tool to the top???
Otherwise, what kind of 'picken technique' did this person have? Damn Shame!
I can forgive a lot of 'wear and tear' , but this borders on ABUSE..!
