    performing, Singing and playing Bluegrass and Southern Gospel, some folk and old country music. The finer things in life, such as 4x4 trucks good steak dinner, good fish for supper, grits,toast and sausage for breakfest, being in the mountains, fishing, my time alone with God, and Church and being with my wife and family.
  1. I am sure she would enjoy one like you were thinking about getting next for yourself, who knows she might not mine sharing it with you!!!
  2. Been there done that, spent all night sweating like a mule eating briars, and I don't mean ice cream either!!! I was told by the factory customer service rep. at Martin what to get and how to apply it to my $10.000 guitar and it like to caused me a heart attack scrubbing so hard and long just to get it off !!! it did remove the light scratches and medium ones that I wanted to remove but I want be doing it myself again. So a word to the wise have a expert do it because it not DIY project that for sure. Also the other post above are right on IMO about high end guitars that's all I buy now and when they are defaced as you described they are no longer a top end guitar they are fancy players only and if you pay the top end price you are sitting yourself up for a big loss money wise should you want to sell it later !!! Good look and choose wisely.
  3. I bought a custom shop guitar with the custom case earlier this year and it is arched in back some and the other custom shop I bought recently is that way two, go figure !!!

  5. Well to really we need to look back to the onset of the likes of the Carter Family, Bill Monroe Father Bluegrass ,Doc Wartson, Woody Gutherie, Author{GuitarBogie}Smith, Roy Rogers and Gene Authery, Elvis, Conway Tweety, Carl Perkins, The Grand Old Oper performers, Simon and Garfunkel, Peter-Paul and Mary, BoB Dilion, The Mama's and the Papa's,, . Southern Gospel performers too many to mention. Blues players like Robert Johnson, etc. Jazz players, Tex Ritter, Red Survine, John Denver, And the list goes on, these and many more are what made and make up Americana !!!
  6. Too add my two cent's worth, when it starts to hurt just keep playing through and your fingers will most likely go numb if you have never played long enough for that to happen make yourself so you can over come the problem !!!
  7. Don't recommend using letter either as the residue from the tanning process can cause serious trouble with the nitro finish like rubber and latex does !!!
  8. Oh well just when you think things are going right, Murphy's law kick's in. Disappointing to hear Ren's is leaving !!!
  9. I think that is a real good price if it is good as advertised !!!
  10. Way cool I like doing his songs!!!! Great pictures ya'll !!!
  11. Welcome to the board the J-45 is a good start they have a good sound I have played my cousin's and enjoy the way it feels and plays!!!
  12. I have seen other guitars with a BR neck and ebony fret board not saying that the one on ebay is are isn't just saying I have seen others!!!
  13. I think the tone would be affected in a negtive way using titanium frets !!!!
  14. I'am a tradition type guy so I like the full bodied guitar, but I have played several cut aways it,s easer to play notes at the 12th fret and higher that way, but it all in the mind set of the player my dot 335 is a double cutaway so their you have it. Use the right Guitar for the Job !!!
