Your First Guitar? in Gibson Acoustic Posted Saturday at 05:21 PM · Report reply 1 hour ago, 62burst said: They can be a good thing, and sometimes not-so-good. The not-so-good: when it's a guitar technical issue, a helpful soul could spend a good bit of time carefully constructing a reply, only to find that the OP hasn't been around for years (OP here did/got what he had to, hasn't been around since). . . . and - maybe a tagged notification, a color, or a banner, could prevent time lost reading a page of posts on a years-old thread. BUT: sometimes you notice something the second time around. For example, Emin7's Buffalo guitar- his first steel stringer. 'Just now noticed in the photo on pg 1; it had an ADJ bridge. Did it come with the ceramic saddle (heavily compensated on the G string, in the ex shown), or was he modding to Dono's Universal Soldier? 'Might explain a sympathetic ear towards the ceramic adj nowadays. Just remember a good answer serves and entertain an entire audience - not just the original poster. My dear ol' Landola Buffalo had the metal insert with a plastic-nylon saddle, , , if I'm not too far off. Turned the screws a bit - not much. Too young.
