    Colin also plays J200's.

    Yes he does! He seems to have several maple backed guitars. I saw him the last time he came to town. He was playing a very special custom, small-bodied Martin with a rosewood back. It didn't seem to match him.

    Is that a hypothetical question, or are you actually considering? Only reason I ask is that the latter suggests a more down-to-earth answer. Also, I'm not sure what variety J-45 we're talking about, considering age and incarnation. They're not the same! First, I guess I'll cover my own situation. My J-45 is a good'n for singing - it strums, flatpicks, and fingerpicks equally well. What I'd like for complementary purposes is something that someone here on the forum - many apologies for not recalling who or which post; I ain't tryin' ta plagiarize none - called the "boom and chime". I'd like to access that sound. The best I've heard would come from an older Guild G-37. Spruce over maple, arched back, D size.

    It's just for fun. There is a lot of wisdom on this board and sometimes all it takes to tap into that is the right question. I have considered a sitka/maple dread because one of my favorite musicians is Colin Hay, the ex-lead singer from Men at Work. He plays a custom Maton in sitka/maple and it sounds really good. I have two Guilds, a DV-52 and a JF30-12, and like their sound but I am not so happy with the long scale and that they are so loud they overcome my vocals.

    I often wonder what it is like having family you love enough to take care of. My family was a family in name only and once I could leave I never looked back. My family will go top their graves without me. Don't hit your kids. Although I know a parent with dementia can be horrifying... I wish I had a father that I loved and loved me in return. It's bitter but a glass half full...

    PM already sent, but otherwise no problem at all on my part. I will gladly listen right here instead to all advice he can give. I do appreciate it.


    I don't care Lars. If there is anything in our correspondence that you feel would be helpful to the other members of the forum feel free to share it. I don't hoard learning. I will say that most of what I write is stream of consciousness so it might need a little editing to point out the important points.
