    The prices on the first two are literally "highway robbery." But, a guitar is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    The AJ may be joining the ranks of the J45 and Hummingbird as being "all over the place" in regards to models and variations. You know, somewhere along the line one has to ask "When does a Hummingbird stop being a Hummingbird?" ..Anyway, I've got a short scale AJ. And are you ready for it? It's not rosewood. It's Koa. A different kind of beast. Very loud acoustic. A bit brighter than my other Gibsons, but its own kind of cannon.. At one point I'd thought of selling it, but I get so many compliments on it that I'll likely keep it. ....So, there really are some short scale AJs out there, BUT (like mine), are they really AJs? Whatever they are, they are sweet guitars.

    Lots of truth in that pic and it's pretty funny. It's likely relevant for a lot of people...[thumbup] ....Like many, I've been there and done that quite-a-few times. Really not necessary anymore for me. Perhaps it never back at things, I don't know that I was fooling her much. She's known for years what I spend on model trains, so I suspect it's a good bet that she notices my various guitars more than I thought. Couldn't count how many times she's heard people ask me "Is that a new guitar?," or "Which Gibson is that?" I'm a lucky guy in many ways. Enjoy your bird. They definitely rate high on the Awesome Scale.

    Lars, I listened to your audio files and they sound fine, but I think I've lost track of what you're trying to prove to yourself. Don't worry about being 50. Just get out and perform somewhere. If Dylan had stayed home instead of going to coffee shops, think of all we'd have missed. Your guitar playing is good. Your vocals are good. You're writing good songs. Now go sing them for an audience.

    Loved it. All this stuff is linked-together. It all came from "real" people performing songs and stories of their own lives. Tough to equal this kind of material. It's real, raw, and human. Far, far from the manufactured crap we hear today on mainstream radio. [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
