Thanks, that was my dad's first guitar. Unfortunately it's not in the best shape and most luthiers don't want to repair a guitar when they'll charge more than it's worth. (One told me he used to do that, but too many people never came to get them). I was going to try to fix as much as possible, replace the tuners and other things, but I noticed the neck is cracking, and that's beyond my limited repair skills.Originally Posted by bburtner@moran
matei - Wow. (And same with everyone's posts). I keep thinking about getting a Gretsch. There's something about that sound. Well, I keep thinking about getting something Les Paulish, too.
By the way, what is about guitars that makes them multiply?
I mean it's odd; I once majored in music and spent a lot of time as a jazz sax player (I also played many styles and spent a lot of time in pit bands since I play all the woodwinds), but I never felt a desire to have more of one of any kind of instrument. When I moved up to better tenor saxes, I would sell the old one (well, I would have kept one, but it was stolen after a gig). Also, I only had one clarinet, one flute, one alto sax, etc., but as soon as I got a guitar, I kept looking at what else was out there.
