    Re: Pava and Girouard

    +1 for Girouard ovals. I recently received my custom order from Max and Lauri. Here's my 2018 Girouard next to my 1918 A1 Gibson. The Girouard is an incredible instrument.

  4. Re: Difference Kentucky KM250 vs KM252 vs KM256

    KM-252 & KM-272 are more blonde side of amber than most pumpkin tops.

    The current KM-2xx models are really great mandolins. Simply amazing for the price. 10 years ago, you'd have had to spend...

    Pick report: D'Andrea Radex and Ultra Plec

    As I posted a little while ago, D'Andrea has restarted manufacturing Ultra Plec which had a bit of cult following. Those are only available in the classic 351 guitar pick shape. I bought a couple...

    Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    I had to downsize a bit when moving into a smaller apartment a few years back. I had a Rogue metal-bodied resonator that I hadn't played in ages, largely due to mandolin displacing any time I had to...

  12. Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    Well so much for my earlier comment about wondering when I'd have the time to play guitar again - this thread ended up being the gateway drug for me to buy a guitar again after about 10 years of not...

    Re: Crowd Funded Co-Op Music Store Idea

    Most of the community music schools I have encountered do just this. But they are non-profits and survive on grants and generous patronage of supporters.

    Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    I agree with most of the other posters. I played guitar back in the 1960s (didn't most of us alive back then,) and then ended up putting it away for almost 40 years for work/family/other...

    Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    notwithstanding personal/family finances; no you should not sell your instruments!

    I've had instruments go for years unplayed. I've gone through all sorts of various passions in my life. I seem to...
  17. Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    That's an angle that has maybe been overlooked. You can forget that if you played an instrument for a long time, other people may still like to hear you play.
    In my case I rarely play guitar on...

    Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    A bit late - but like others, don't get rid of stuff unless you have a specific reason. The last acoustic guitar I sold off went towards my Breedlove. Now, the Breedlove is getting neglected, but...

  20. Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    Hi Frost,

    In my past there's been a few guitars I regret selling. At the time my thoughts were that someone should be playing them rather than they sit unattended.

    Since then I decided I'd...

    Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    I wouldn't rush.

    My approach was one of compromise. Sell the instruments that I hadn't touched in years.
    Keep one of each, just in case. One electric guitar, one acoustic guitar, one small...
  22. Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    Doubt the currently unused instruments are doing you any harm sitting in their cases. They're a potential resource, if you decide to take advantage of them; they're also a link to your past, your...
  23. Re: Should I get rid of my other instruments?

    I sometimes go years without picking up a particular instrument and then I pick it up again and play it a lot.

    It's also nice to have some extra axes around when musical guests drop by and...
