  1. I have seen them go on ebay as low as $730 and I saw an international sale once go for almost $1200 (and it had a broken headstock). I am on my second one. I kicked myself daily for selling my first one, and thought I would never find another one. They are getting really hard to find, so don't sell yourself short.
  2. For country blues, thumb and two fingers; for arpeggiated stuff, i tend to use thumb and three.
  3. Wow. Really nice. I was thinking Tom Waits all the way as I was listening, then scrolled down to see I wasn't alone in my thoughts. Wonderful tone in the LG too.
  4. I like it; it's something that makes your guitar that much more different than everybody else's.
  5. Wow! Toby, you should NOT give that guitar back. Nice playing too, btw.
  6. Hover your mouse pointer over the big "I" beside "Gibson" in the Saddles section. It will probably give you the info you're looking for: Colosi Link I think I'd measure and send him an email to be on the safe side.
  7. sorry.........brain fart
  8. It helped that I had previously ordered them for a Blues King and my first WM-00. But, Bob's standard Gibson saddle with compensated B-string will replace any Gibson TUSQ saddle.
  9. See my previous post from back in April....... Early last week I got a pm here on the forum. It basically pointed to this thread and said "if you're still looking for a WM-00, I have one that I'm willing to sell". I responded without trying to show too much enthusiasm and asked the general questions -- has it been humidified, smoke-free home, etc. The seller turned out to be a super nice person, gave me way more information than I had asked. He bought the guitar in 2002 with the hope that buying a nice guitar would generate enough enthusiasm and conviction to make him learn to play. It didn't work out that way. I've ended up buying the guitar for a very fair price, he's throwing in 2 tuners, 2 straps, 5 sets of Martin strings, and a few other odds-n-ends. In checking the serial number on the guitar, it came off the production line in 2001 just 2 days after the WM-00 I had previously owned. In the pictures I've seen, the guitar still looks brand new. The top had darkened quite a bit on my first one; the top on this one still looks very light. Needless to say, I'm stoked! I've already got a Colosi bone saddle and pins ordered to replace the tusq that's on it. The big brown truck is supposed to be here Friday..............can't wait.
  10. I am not sure if you got my response on this thing or not? Where I answer all your questions and ask for your real email to send pictures to? If you didn't get that, then let me know please.

  12. Hi, I happened to read your post today about how much you miss your WM-00. Back in 99 or 00, I purchased one brand new with the thought that buying an expensive guitar would force me to practice. I didn't happen, and I have to face it that I am not meant to play guitar. Anyways, I have a barely used and gorgeous Working Musician-00. If you still miss yours, then email me back. JVDBogart@AOL...

    That happens around here from time-to-time too. He probably got more use from the gig bag than I did.
