    I played an "eagle" version of the LG2. Din't fly high for me. Fwi, the LG2 and the LI (and L00s) are different beasts. Mini-J45 vs a dry/punchy little thing.


    Probably not as different as they once were. If nothing else, if talking about the originals, different bracing
  2. In Topic:The “favourite songwriting guitar” thread...

    Yesterday, 05:07 PM

    I consider myself an arranger rather than a writer. I never seem to play much of anything as it was originally written. If you want a blues version of Wipe Out or a Cajun version of Wooly Bully I am there. I once arranged Paint it Black where the chorus was played as a waltz and a with a kazoo sitting in for the sitar. But for me the guitar is immaterial. I get an idea stuck in my head and I will grab whatever is nearest to me.
  3. In Topic:LR Baggs Lyric Mic in Advanced Jumbo.

    Yesterday, 02:27 PM

    My wife has the Baggs Lyric Mic in her Martin D-12 28. She seems to like it. Me - I just bought another Dearmond 210 from a friend. I did not need another one but I could not resist it as it came in its original box with a receipt and sales literature.

    It's the Guild jumbos that I love. Solid rosewood back or unbraced arched back maple laminate, they're everything I want in a 6 or 12-string.


    Guild 12 strings are what put them on the map. In the 1970s though Guild was a bright spot in an otherwise somewhat mediocre decade for acoustics.

    Congrats!

    I have never played an IB Texan I did not like the sound of. The slightly wider nut is a particularly welcome change when compared to the originals.

    The tuners would date the guitar to the mid- 1950s to around 1960. The attraction of this one would be these N-1 dreads were X braced. Not a bad price but it sounds like the cost of a neck reset will have to be factored in. You would end up having more in the guitar than it would be worth but that has never stopped a few of us.

    Zomby, a pat on the back for collecting, repairing, resurrecting your old guitars. I do the same, and I often put more money into them than I can ever get back, but there is great satisfaction in saving them from the junk heap. Cudos to you!

    Thanks for the heads up. I have a friend who owns a 1920s L-2. The guitar is refinished but with violin varnish or something (the owner used to make violins) so it now has the color of a pumpkin top mando which actually looks pretty good. Anyway it is not for sale but he keeps saying if I want it I can have it for $1800. But I would still need to sell something to buy it and am just no...

    Zomby...this is one of the best condition L-2's I've seen in a LONG while.....They had it posted at $3500, so the price is lowered, and there is a "make offer" box....still pretty pricey, but it is in great condition with all original parts....just FYI, I don't know this guy from Adam.....

    Funny, I can't stop drooling over your Gibson. I have come close to picdking up another one of those more times than I can count but the deal always seems to fall through.
    I might actually have a case for your Gibson. I don't really know how old it is but it is covered with a lacqured tweed and was obviously made for a round bottom archtop.

    Hey Mr. Fool,
    The May-Belles were made by Slingerland. While these days they are known for drums back in the day Slingerland made some of the sweetest archtops around which easily rivaled anything coming out of Gibson or Epiphone. The official name of mine is a May-Bell Style 75 Violin Craft. The line was introduced in 1933. The Slingerland catalog states the guitars was hand rubb...
