  1. Very fine job there David.
  2. I have only in the last month discovered Roy Clarke! I couldnt believe how much like Benny Hill he was. Highly talented in all ways.
  3. Here is James Curleigh speaking at the National Retail Federation. He speaks of making the Levis brand into a 'lifesyle' brand.....I wonder if he will make Gibson into a lifestyle brand?
  4. This is a very popular pick up. I have one in a J-45, and it works great. A preamp makes it sound better but it works well on its own. Still, also worth considering is JJB electronics, virtually identical at half the price of a KK. That makes it $50 - shipped! http://www.jjb-electronics.com/index.html. I also have one on a J-45. I have no affiliation with JJB, but they have top customer service.

    WTB: J-45

    Yes very true.An online forum is like work/school/college. Someone will rise to the top, and others, often by force, will sink to the bottom. Still, Sal has manned up and said a heartfelt 'I apologize'
  6. I have a phone tuner, but maybe I will download the Peterson.
  7. Actually...neither am I. The tuner competition is fierce, and their prices the highest. Something is going to give.
  8. I bought a P10s intellitouch tuner in July, only used a few times. It is very good, but unfortunatley, the clip broke. I went to their website -its gone.I went to facebook and left messages which went unanswered.I called the company with 2 different numbers, both dead. You guessed it, the company has folded. No more intellitoch tuners. Its back to Snark.

  10. Not in the UK it seems.A number of places seem to have sold them in the past inc. amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Meter-Guitar-Preamp-Battery-Tester/dp/B002Q0PPS Thomann in Germany have them -£33 to the door. https://www.thomann.de/gb/basket.html
  11. Oh I dont doubt the sound. About 15 years ago, a UK shop had 2 L-00s. One used and one new. I would have walked out of the shop with both had my wife not have been in the car waiting for me! If they had after market dove inlays...they would still be there!
  12. This L-00 standard is for sale. Please note the 'upgrades'..TRC with pearl-easily changed back, but the dove inlays....oh dear. They are real inlays done by a luthier at owners request. I know some folks will like it, IMHO, awful! https://www.gumtree.com/p/guitar-instrument/special-gibson-l-00-loo-standard-acoustic-guitar-lr-baggs-athem-sl-pick-up-mother-of-pearl-inlay/1304636818
  13. From Wikipedia. Effects on materials DEET is an effective solvent,[7] and may dissolve some watch crystals,[4] plastics, rayon, spandex, other synthetic fabrics, and painted or varnished surfaces including nail polish. Dont use Deet and play your nitro guitar.

    TKL case

    My 20 year old Geib TKL case hardware and exterior are in great shape. The green interior however, was not. The fabric had faded from green to brown, which TKL and CFM said was a humidity problem. The 'green to brown' issue is widley discussed online, and claims are made that this is the reason TKL switched fabrics. I conntacted TKL for help. Not wanting to buy a new case at $300, I asked them if they sold the interior materials so that I could reline the case. They said..NO...but we would be happy to reline it for you....for $300 plus shipping (to and from Bermuda). I declined! I then asked if they could tell me about the foam glues and fabric they use. No reply. Thanks TKL. So, I therefore decided to go ahead and purchase fabric, glue, and foam and go for it.Here is the result..
  15. Agree entirely. $1700 though?...NO.
