  9. Re: Found some autographed Bluegrass vinyl at my local store toda

    Like JB mentioned back in the day (and I guess it's still true today) one of the cool things about seeing these groups live was the chance to buy an album and, if you were patient and polite, they'd...

    Re: mildew in case

    Not sure the value of the guitar but I'd be reluctant to ever use the case again. A good hard shell case can be had for about a hundred bucks, a decent gig bag for less than half. Sometimes you're...
