  1. Hello to all the Forumites that I used to converse with! It's been awhile since my last post. I see some old usernames and plenty of new ones. Hope everyones Gibbys are sounding better than ever! I'm still playing regularly, hope ya'll's fingers are sore from jamming!!!
  2. Thanks guys! I've really found this really cool sound from my Gibby. I've always loved to try different gadgets, but I've run my Gibby into a Phase 90 pedal I had from the '70's. Wow!!!! Not too much effect, just enough to hear it on the strings. Cool stuff! Works well with America songs and James Taylor stuff. Been working on a few old songs by Firefall. Gigging all I can. The older my guitars get, the better they sound. I just LOVE new strings!!
  3. Been busy as of late! I've been playing a lot of gigs and just enjoying life. Sometimes it's good to get away from all the computers and electronic devices and just live in the real world for a while! It really gives you a great perspective on yourself and inspires your musical creativity. So with that, Hey all! What's up!
  4. I can't say enough about the Marshall AS-50D either. However, I purchased a Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb ReIssue last year to play my electric through. A 22 watt amp with delicious reverb! At one gig, I plugged my SJ into it for a song and was blown away by the sound. The amp did not "color" my guitar's tone at all. Just pure acoustic sound! This works very well for me, since I play acoustic and electric on some gigs. On the purely acoustic gigs, I bring the Marshall. Two great amps, just pick the one that serves your sound best!!!
  5. Anyone ever heard of this one? http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/gibson-l-20-parlor-custom-acoustic-electric-guitar
  6. As there are many here, myself included, if you had to narrow down to just ONE acoustic and ONE electric, which guitars would remain in the stable?
  7. Leave now and go straight to the liquor store and get completely wiped out. Feel sorry for yourself and then proceed to kick yourself in the a$$ for letting this happen. I'm sure your guitar had a little help "falling" off the stand! Maybe now might be a great time to purchase that new Gibby you've always wanted! Next time, after playing, PUT IT IN THE CASE!!!!! BTW, sorry for your loss!
  8. I know!!! And yes, I agree 100% with you!!! Great job Sal! A wonderful cover. As said earlier, that Tele just brings it. Great vibe that just rolls and rolls! Outstanding!
  9. I forgot to mention that my lyric sheets are poster boards with 4" letters!!!!!
  10. Played one today, OMG!!!!! Let me think, what can I sell or trade........
  11. That stupid quiz says I'm a TAYLOR 814!!!! Go ahead and shoot me now and put me out of my misery! Damn, I'm gonna have bad dreams tonight!
  12. I do use a lyric sheet. Most of the songs I have memorized, but I do have the words down there in front of me for a quick peek if needed. Usually, I'll lay the lyric sheet on the floor so the audience really doesn't see it. Mostly used on the new songs that I've learned. There's no shame in it! The older I get, the more more sheets are on the floor!!!

  14. I think this is very cool indeed!!! Would add a little spice to an acoustic jam session with friends, without having to drag out the amps, mics, etc. My only hesitant would be sticking that darn 3M double stick tape to the back of my guitar! That stuff is kryptonite to a nitro finish. I'll wait till they come up with a better mounting procedure! Anyway, a very cool product that would be fun to fool around with!
  15. A classic tune unplugged......
  16. Always liked this video of this song. A talented lady for sure! Always did her music her way, kind of a female Neil Young!!! A great voice as well. Nice burst on that Gibby, huh?!!! Enjoy!
  17. C'mon with the question already, DenverSteve! Don't be scared to ask us. There's probably more knowledge here than at Bozeman!
  18. If you grew up in the late '60's and early '70's, I guess by now you're wiping tears from your eyes and drool off of your mouth and chin. I'll admit it, I am! Simply stunning and breath-taking performance. The Page/Plant union was truly one of music's best offerings, period. Jimmy Page contributed some of rocks most intricate acoustic work in his catalogue of music. Thanks for video, made my day!
  19. The model I have has RW back and sides and Sitka top in gloss nitro. I believe they're going for around $1200-$1500 now. I don't know about the satin mahogany models. Here's a pic of mine (on the left).
  20. They're looking for a case like that for these....
  21. Welcome back!!! People come and go here all the time, but a few of us are still banging the drum. Good to have a prodigal son to come back home!!! I do remember pics of your SJ200, what a beauty! I'm sure the Administrators are diligently working on getting your credentials in order again! Keep on pickin'!
  22. Check in from time to time, DC. Good luck with your other guitars. We all do "baby" our Gibby's, our Martins, and other expensive guitars; but at the end of the day they're still just guitars. Play'em and play'em hard! That's the rule I go by. If you worry about every little ding or scratch or humidity, you're only limiting yourself and the guitar on what you can get out of it. I do take relatively good care of my instruments (wipe them down after playing, let them acclimate to playing conditions, etc.), but a guitar is made to be played! I play a $100 guitar just like I do my $3000 Gibby. It'
