  1. That's great thing to do Dan. I wish you happy adventures ahead...please be sure and take pics wherever you stop to show us home bound types. Where do you pull it up to at night, a camper grounds or just anywhere? Powder sure looks like a good boy. He doesn't even try to run or wander off on his own & stays right by your side? Is he a purebred retriever? My last dog would have run into the nearest whatever when I turned my head, I had to be on my toes, but my dog growing up didn't need a leash, he stayed right with me.
  2. Would be interesting to see pictures of old bracing vs. new side by side. Perhaps someone has a mirror that have taken pics of these braces? Doesn't make sense that Ren would deviate from the old bracing, since he did study the old timers when they were just starting to make re-issues at MT. What would be the incentive to change? Do you think he was thinking 20 years into the future to charge more for the way the scalloped bracing was on the originals and call them(Legends)
  3. As for me, I like GHS Vintage Bronze on my WM45. I leave them on for a long time. The bracing carve - how did Ren change it from the old way it was done?
  4. Don't throw your harmonica and rack inside the case with guitar. This is what Dylan did with his J50. But he was younger then, and older than that now.
  5. You guys ever read this? Good to read thru before shipping. Towards the bottom, he says that FedEX is the worst to use, UPS & USPS better. http://www.lutherie.net/shipping.html
  6. Good find on that one, congrats. You should be glad in retrospect it was not in a case - if it was, probably would have had a cracked neck or broken headstock because the guy probably wouldn't have thought to support under the head stock at all. Would have been worse bouncing around inside a case. How's the neck angle? Did you run a straight edge down the neck to bridge? Truss rod works o.k.?
  7. I think its nice that Paul is still willing to go out there with the people sharing the love we all have for his songs, which bring up so many great memories.
  8. Just how are we to pay for all the children & parents needing and using crumbling public services coming across the border? Why, by more taxes that's how! Gonna be something when the working stiffs don't have any more $ for taxes. Can you say revolution?
  9. Looks nice, lucky you it was so close by. Not many of these were built. Yours is a copy of a '43, well mine must be a copy of the late 40's - I have a '91 also, but a bit different - although also a Mahogany back/sides, it has no banner logo but a gold block letter, label says SJ-45. I replaced the green Schaller Keystone tuners w/Waverly and installed firestripe pickguard. It is light, at around 4.2 or so lbs. Wonder why the variation in the same year? Sound has also very deep bass and neck is round / thicker than any current J45 or J35. Here are some pics I took to compare https://imgur.com/a/N7vCljQ
  10. Where you gonna put the pup when out rubbing elbows? Do they have pet friendly hotels? I'd like to go but can't stand the thought of a not so nice stewardess telling me my 6 string can't be taken aboard, and getting it smashed in baggage!
  11. If the black paint bothers you, take some lighter fluid (napitha) soaked in a cloth & rub. It will probably come right off.
  12. Street Legal - one of my favorites - love Dylan's vocal delivery on this album
  13. Drink this stuff enough & you'll be at Heaven's Door a little sooner than expected
  14. Here is same guitar I guess a J50, same one Greg Allman wrote Melissa on.
  15. Very nice - and we must see pictures!
