  1. Hi, I am unable to use the forum search facility. I am getting the message, `access denied, you do not have permission to search this forum`. I am signed into my account. Any ideas? Cheers, Steve.
  2. Love this documentary. The guitars that have featured in Marks life.
  3. May be worth posting on the AGF, John Thomas who was behind the Kalamazoo Girls book and programme, posts on there. Nice guitar and good luck.
  4. Just had a reply off Kevin. The bridge and fingerboard back and sides are Honduran mahogany!! That will do for me. Can`t wait, it`s going to be a long week or so. Cheers
  5. Mine is number 62 going off Kevins` numbering system. I have emailed kevin, he told me it was the first one he made for Mandolin Bros. Cool.!! I will send another email, see what info I can get. Cheers.
  6. Hi, I have a 2008 Kevin Kopp K35 being shipped over to the UK Does anybody know what the woods used on these earlier K35 are? The reason I ask is because, the fingerboard seems to be really dark, almost ebony looking on earlier ones. The Bridge is much lighter than the fingerboard on a lot of the earlier ones.I see new ones for sale and the fingerboard is much lighter, as I expect rosewood to look. Could the darker wood be Madagascar? I also saw an old sellers ad, saying that the back and sides were Honduran mahogany, whereas new ones for sale all say, mahogany. My feeling, is that they are not Honduran unless it is a custom upgrade. Any info or spec sheets would really be appreciated. I am currently, tracking my guitar across the US by road, then when it gets to Texas, it will be flying over here!! Getting excited, still another week to go. Cheers.
  7. Yes it makes sense to have the guitar factory setting a pinch high, as Bozz said, it would be problematic if set to low. Mafy, I agree go to low and you could lose some tone and get fret buzz. Bluesking, yep the right set up vital, as you say `we play them every day`. Thanks again. Cheers.
  8. Thanks for the input, glad you are enjoying your Gibbbo. Cheers.
  9. Thanks for the replies, it seems that a slight tweak would be the thing for me. Cheers.
  10. Thanks for the reply Blindboy, sounds like you prefer the same set up as me. Good advice on the saddle. Cheers.
  11. Hi, How do you find the Gibson factory set up. Do you have the action altered or is it spot on for you? Are you a strummer or picker, I am just wondering what style of playing people find the factory set up suits. I have just played a few slope shoulder Gibsons, and found the action more or less spot on when I strummed some chords. When I tried some travis picking, I felt the action a little bit on the high side, although not much, when playing at the dusty end. My existing guitar which is a Brook, is set really low, so I imagine that's what I am used to. When I get my Gibson it will be mainly for strumming, and my Brook for picking. What have you good people done when a new Gibbo arrives? Cheers.
  12. Thanks for the reply and info. Cheers.
  13. Thanks again for the info on the neck. What is the bridge string spacing on the Legend? Cheers.
  14. Thanks for replies. If I could find one near to me I would definitely give it a try. Unfortunately, the one I have seen for sale in the UK, is at the other end of the country. Thanks once again.
