  1. I have a 2012 model (no pickup) and if it had a thicker 1940s neck, I might not own a single other guitar. It's incredible....
  2. had the same search as you...i would play these or make sure you can return easily. many i tried were in fact dead sounding. i looked at recording king, epiphone, eastman & larivee. Hard to say what you are looking for via an internet thread, but methinks you might need to look around. I stumbled upon a used washburn 125th anniversary edition parlor that was $495 all in with the case. It's one of my favorite guitars and always brings a smile to my face. The $15-$400 new guitars did nothing for me--I hope your luck will be different.
  3. amen. did not like the sound of that at all
  4. reviews are quite articulate and he's quite talented as a player but frankly his style doesn't suit me at all....makes me fell kinda funny actually. :)
  5. I have a banner maple lg2 and paid more than TM suggested was the price. I only saw two in my area (NYC) over the course of an approx 12-18 month search and I passed on a PRISTINE one that only had one cracked brace because it didn't have the tone. instead i bought one that needed a neck set (was a consignment guitar at a reputable shop and was paid for by the owner) and needed a new tone bar (paid for by me). one point, my understanding is that all the maple backs are laminate on these--someone could correct otherwise. both I saw in person had laminates and so does mine (mine has gorgeous
  6. And for every piece in that room worth 50k, you paid more than at least one other person out there would. perspective ;)
  7. OWF--I have that exact Washburn and it's an utter joy to play. That neck made me a convert....perhaps the best $400 and change I ever spent.
  8. that tribute is seksy! is it a real V? I have a Washburn parlor with basically a 90 degree angle back there--love it.
  9. Just coming back to this thread...a few comments from even more time with these. First off, these are much larger than the planet waves--not in a bad way either. the sponges are bigger, the humidifier itself feels far more sturdy (for whatever that's worth) and the hinged lid is nice to be able to check on the sponge. With three in use I can safely say these easily trump any of the other options mentioned above. they last about twice as long as the oasis plus case humidifier (maybe even 3x more than the regular one), and maybe 4x longer than the planet waves which I found I needed to
  10. To start, I have ZERO affiliation with the product and company I'm about to beam about.... Like many of you, dry winters has been a giant PITA for me over the years and I've always found it a chore to keep up with my acoustics during this season. At various times, I've used oasis case humidifiers, planet waves sponges, drugstore sponges in soap cases, Arion case humidifiers, herco, humidipaks and those kyser sound hole covering humidifiers. None managed to get my case anywhere near even 40% even when using multiple combinations of the previous mentioned. I was on Amazon recently and saw
  11. one of the sharpest guitars out there! gorgeous!
  12. G7th--fits behind like you say, have not measured my neck but works just fine on my banner lg2 which has a mighty thick neck...
  13. is that an april fool's joke?
