playing with the grandkids, grilling, HO railroad, music......I play a lot of different places in the KC area. Pizza parlors, coffeeshops, bars, libraries, farmers markets, parks...anywhere they won't arrest me. I write a lot of my on material, but also do many cover songs.

    Playing a guitar can be very relaxing. Relieves stress. I imagine it might help to lower the ol' blood pressure too. Try it. You'll like it.

    Congrats on your J45. Very, very nice guitars. They are everything you read about them. Tough to go wrong with one of them.

    Whatever year it is, it looks like a really sweet guitar and equally important is the fact that you enjoy playing it. Easy to bond with a guitar like this. I can't tell you much about the saddle (always been above my pay grade and knowledge), but I wouldn't let anyone talk me into changing anything on the guitar you describe and show. Looks like a truly "keeper" instrument.

    Never had a K&K that I'm aware of. Heard good things about them for the most part.... Honest question. What are you hearing in the guitar that you would not hear with another pickup?

    Enjoy that Songwriter. Sweet-looking instrument. Bet it's a great fingerpicker too. I hope you play it for many, many years. [thumbup] [thumbup]

    Did you get a chance to hear the Zager ZAD80 I am purchasing vs. my Gibson J200?

    Never been to his shop, although I play up around Lawson a couple times each year (music festivals). When I've used him I typically have him pick-up my guitar at the nearby Guitar Center......

    Keith George. Have you ever been to his shop? It can be kinda scary for the uninitiated.

    I always get a kick out going to Mass Street Music. My repair guy though is over in Lawson Missouri. It is about two hours from me but well worth the trouble.

    Hi MissoriPicker, just wanted to ask what kind of lacquer you used for your pickguard? My buddy wants to make sure he gets the right kind. Any other advice about it? Did you do the entire guard or just the design? Thanks
