  1. I'm gonna print this thread and seek those publications noted herein. Once again, hats off to all of my gearhead brothers and sisters (only you know which one applies)lol.
  2. I live just outside of Nashville. Smart money says there's a jazz in structor here. Nashville's nickname is, afterall "Music City".
  3. Is it just me or does AXE's avitar have anyone else thinking "into the circle...into the circle...yes Master...into the circle"lol. I'll Google it my brother. Thundergod!!! I'd apologize for referring to you as AXE, but for the life of me, I can't fathom what I'd be apologizing for. As usual, you all go above and beyond to help those of us bringing up the rear. I'm looking forward to being able to carry my share of the load at some point in the not-to-distant future. Off thread a tad. I recently purchased an 07 Taylor T5 Ltd Edition (all maple construction). I'll post pics if requested. It's due to arrive next Tuesday. I was simply following my heart.
  4. Once again the crew comes through!. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; I have many questions but no answers. Thanks to all of you. P.S. Thundergod, were you referring to my 2nd post to you where I shortened your handle to "TG"?.
  5. AXE, you think maybe this one might also help me find my up the stairway to heaven by the time I get to the last page. LOL. Thanks a bunch.
  6. I'm not really sure AXE. Right now I'd say primarily guitar, but eventually I'd like to buy a decent keyboard. I guess I can wait to cross that bridge when I get to it.
  7. Hello all. I'm in need of a good book, or couple of books that explain music theory. I don't want something that gives the reader the complete historyof music from the dawn of time. I'm looking for something more practical and user friendly, i.e. keys, chord pairings, chord progressions, where minors and majors fit in. Kind of the what, where, when, why, and how. Any suggestions.:)
  8. Once again my fellow gearheads, your input is most helpful, but let me tell you why I started this thread. It just so happens there is..(or was, I just pulled the trigger) an 07 T5 LTD Edition up for sale. It's all maple construction in HoneyBurst with quilted top and neck. It's selling for a decent price. This ain't your run-of-the-mill T5. This sweetheart has that WOW!!! factor. If my research serves me right, there were only about 400 of these units made that year. Granted, I'm still somewhat of a novice, but I seem to be irresistably drawn towards this instrument, and I'm not talking eye candy. I've been looking, watching, reading, etc... everything I can find on this guitar for at least 6-months. I have yet to see another like it. It's like I told Murph in my previous reply, "Who knows, I may pick up the T5 and absolutely fall in love. Utimately, the decision is mine to make". Still moving forward ever so slowly on my journey of discovery, diligently seeking the key to release the music locked inside of me. Will keep you all posted. Until next time.
  9. Now we're gettin' somewhere. Any suggestions on a good accoustic model? Still have enough coin in my gear fund to drop 1500 to 2000, although I'd rather not spend it if a really good player can be had for less. What about humidifying also?
  10. Thanks for the input , especially Murph. It's greatly appreciated. I've read good and not so good things about the guitar, but IMHO, there's no better input than that which comes from an individual with first-hand experience and a sound musical background. I've picked around on a J-185-EC a couple of times, and some of Gibsons other accoustic models. They all have a BOOMING sound, can't argue that point. However, I couldn't get in a comfortable position when playing them. I'm sure that feeling would correct itself with time, patience, and practice. My search will continue for now. Who knows, I may pick up a T5 and fall in love. Ultimately the decision is mine to make. Thanks again my resident gearheads.
  11. Been looking for an accoustic/electric for several months now. Am seriously considering a T5. Do any of you own one, or had the opportunity to play one? Looking for some first-hand feedback.:-
  12. Believe it not it's maple (based on feedback from a Gibson tech I've come to know). The finish, in person , appears to be be somwhere between natural and trans amber. I've never seen a premium top on a studio this nice. Maybe the finish has a lot to do with that.
