Wait a minute. JC, you've got 5 new guitars waiting upon your arrival? Man, that's gonna be some trippin' New Guitar Day [lol] My head would explode. :blink: :blink: :blink:

Dan ,


I was supposed to move back 2 years ago ... but I've had set backs ... just when I think I'm ready something else turns up .



but I'm really close to getting back after 15 years ! . I ordered two guitar per year ... but since they are lefthanded they took a long time to be built so I could never match my vacation to the time a guitar was completed to go and demo it or bring it back with me so they have been waiting there patiently

I am still holding at two Gibsons - 1942 J-50 and 1946 LG-2. I did snag a Lifton Gibson case in really nice condition though. It did not seem to phase me that I do not actually have a jumbo made between 1948 and 1960. But Gibsons just look so good nestled in those brown cases, at the risk of offending the purists out there, it will make a nice home for the J-50.


My prize catch this year was a 1957 Kay-built Silvertone jumbo. If you have not played a large body ladder braced guitar you are missing one of life's great pleasures. Just a big fat lo-fi meaty sound. Another one may be lurking right around the corner as I have a 1954 Kay-built National here for a visit.
