    Re: adding a pickup to a 1927 gibson A

    What I have on both of mine is a Fishman bridge attached to a 1/4" endpin jack. Yes, it means a bit of drilling, but the result is a sturdy installation of the industry standard for cables. No...

    Re: Don Williams

    Ah yes, "The Gentle Giant." Not sure if he's one of the all-time greats, but just about every single was a good song, well-done. His music's easygoing style was so pleasant to hear, yet may have...

    Re: Nice Looking F4 at Music Folk

    Thanks, Charlie. I can't really answer that. I've only ever played one other before, which is Dave Reiner's, and I can't remember whether it was an F-4 or F-2, nor its vintage. It was not a baseball...

    Never mind who's what. Sam Bush from 2:40 - 3:20, then Holy Mother of Pearl, Bela freakin' Fleck! :disbelief: Good luck anyone following that! :mandosmiley:

    Re: Nice Looking F4 at Music Folk

    I actually prefer the sound of phosphor bronze strings once the newness wears off a bit. They're a bit brash at first.

    Not long ago another brand got touted a good bit - DR. I've been loyal to...

    Re: A couple odd tenors on ebay

    You seem to have missed my point. Didn't want to come right out and say it, but I really dislike misinformation and misinterpretation, and I don't want to be a party to any such. So I'll be blunt. I...

    I hear you. Right now my A still sounds better to my ears, with those D'Addario J 74s. And this is the spare; the better one is in the shop. :disbelief: Time will tell, as will a string change. ;) My...

    Re: Beatles tunes

    I thoroughly agree. It's one of Paul's most inspired works. Melody, chords, arrangement. I used to think the way their version ended with a minor > major switch was a cop-out, but I've learned a few...

    I've been easing into playing her; she's sounding better all the time. I'm not used to playing an instrument of this quality. I'm a bit reserved, but I'm getting more comfortable the more I play. The...

    Re: Beatles tunes

    I didn't include songs the Beatles covered in my list, as to my line of thinking they aren't truly Beatles songs, and concentrated on songs they'd written (with the exception of "Slow Down," which...

    Re: Beatles tunes

    You didn't here, but it hardly matters (though I am curious to hear it) because the guitar player does such a remarkably accurate rendition. George would approve, I think. ;)

    Ah - Elvis has left the building. In fact, in the same minute that I posted the previous message. :disbelief: So it is what it is.

    Don't worry - Be happy. I'll try that. ;)

    Re: Nice Looking F4 at Music Folk

    It's not the waiting, per se, as much as the worrying - the thought of her sitting in an uncooled van for several hours perturbs me no end, But luck may be on my side - it's overcast. Think I'll sit...
