  2. It's over 50 years old, cherish the checking, it makes it sweeter.
  3. The F-25 from the 60s has a 2" nut.
  4. If the Earth was flat, cats would have knocked everything off by now.
  5. In my case it is an inherited guitar, my late mother-in-law's 1968 Martin 5-18, a little tiny terz guitar. She never played it so it's nearly pristine. I had the pick guard replaced because the original had warped and had pulled up at the edges but otherwise very original. It even has the original strings on it. And I have the letter from Martin & Co. when she registered it when she got it. I'll never play it much partly because it's too small and I want to keep it almost as new. It's kinda like a low mileage classic car.
  6. Me too. Great for learning, I could play it hard or soft, and strum or fingerpick. I sold it in '82 to finance my current Gibson, a F-25 which is a steel stringer with the dimensions of a classical guitar. The transition was easy.
  7. I've had mine since '83, a '66 vintage. It has a flat fingerboard just like a classical guitar. That's why I bought it, I was used to playing a classical and wanted a steel string but they all had necks that were too skinny for me. Then I found mine in a pawn shop for cheap - $150 - and immediately fell in love. I had found my life partner guitar.
  8. I Googled it and found Nilsson listed. Great movie, by the way.
  9. I saw that Jack Paar show, I watched it regularly back then. I had heard about them and was curious. And like you I was lucky to have "cool" parents, ones not automatically against anything new.
  10. Everything changed. 1964 was the year us boomers became "adults". We had lost our President and were wondering what our future was going to be and The Beatles showed us what the future was. Their appearance on the Sullivan show signaled a shift in the market in the music business, suddenly the largest part of the market was young. An historic moment for sure.
  11. Looks real to me and probably very nice sounding. It looks like it could use some professional TLC and I think you may have a winner.
  12. And a new member of the R&R Hall Of Fame.
  13. It's about time for Butterfield. Their influence was huge in bringing the blues back into popularity. Joan Jett is just plain out and out screaming rock and roll. She's always been in my personal Hall of Fame.
