    Re: My Gibson Master Model Story

    Hi Lisa,

    I know several individuals who have David's email address but might be reluctant to give it out on a public forum like this. I suggest you message him via his Facebook page -- he is very...
  2. Re: Article: The 1978 Bob Givens Interview from The Guitars Frien

    That sounds like the same article I am thinking about.

    Interesting for sure and a trip back to the 70s and 80s -- a time warp. But there is another long narrative story about R.L. Givens that exists too. It used to be on line in the early days of the...

  5. Re: Sierra Hull and Billy Strings, Grey Fox June 2019

    Hot pickers and unlike some of the premier pickers in the previous generations these two can play it hot and still hold on the the melody of the tune through the whole number.

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    Two of them! Well hush my mouth then! So I can only imagine that those guitars must be outright killers. What do you think the value of them is on today's market and how do they compare tone-wise...

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    Ha ha. True there were Western dragons -- in Christianity often used to represent Satan for example -- along with the snake. But it seems to me that images of Occidental dragons look a lot...

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    For sure! I would take one of those first re-issues of the Advanced Jumbo that he made -- this was in the mid-late 1990s. They had Brazilian Rosewood back and sides from a stash that he had saved ...

    Re: Rubner tuners are back

    Thanks for that link! Those are beautiful mandolin tuners for a very reasonable price -- and the shipping is very reasonable too! I was about to order a set for an A-style mandolin but notice that...

    True but dragons really are not much of an American or European thing? Oriental yes very much so. Allen brought up Antonio Tsai (or whatever his name is) in an earlier post on this thread.. He is...

    Re: Your average $150,000 guitar

    But its like a Gibson Loar -- you are not paying just for superior sound quality -- in fact there are some modern high end mandolins that might be as good or maybe better? Rather you are paying for...

    Re: Today the Music Died

    Perhaps there is a lesson to be gleaned from this curious string? To wit, when you see a video that could be an extinction level event (aka ELE) it would make sense to download your own copy of it? ...

    Of course you can compare a Pontiac Fiero to a La Ferrari too but..........yeah there is the price.

    BTW most of those other custom/designer Gibson guitars were not based on dragon themes but other...

    I believe that this is just one more example of probably maybe 20 - 25 (that I know of at least) of special commissioned Gibson J-200s. L-5s and S-400 guitars that are uber laden with bling and were...

    Beautiful instrument! Could you also mention how wide you made the nut? Any radius to the fret board? Thanks! Did you try 0.074" strings for the C course? That would allow a bit more tension on...

  23. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    Yes, same thoughts. For sure I never ever should have sold my '60/61 Hummingbird, the '65 Dove and the '65 D-28 -- but when I got hooked on mandolin they mostly sat in their cases still.... On the...
