Hi Tony and Noah,
I would keep the J-200! That is amazing!
All the best,
I would sell the guitar and buy other one that I would want to play.
Steven Stills – I would keep it and treasure it.
As a member of the Board of Directors of the largest audiophile community in the world, I have to put in a good word for digital media. It’s true that vinyl tends to have a nice ‘organic’ sound. But most people simply haven’t heard digital DONE RIGHT. With the proper equipment (and well-recorded/produced music), digital CAN be everything that vinyl is and SO MUCH more. Silent background, unlimited dynamic & frequency ranges – all things vinyl can NOT do.
Don’t get me wrong – I am not ‘against’ vinyl or its resurgence. Just the opposite, since for most listeners this provides better sound. (Digital done WRONG really does suck.) But don’t discount what is possible in digital now… and it’s still getting better. It’s the future!
S. Still’s 1941 J-200: Think about the wonderful instruments you could buy for $85K! Yeah, it would be COOL to own this historic guitar, but it’s “just a guitar” and it’s greatest value is as a ‘museum piece’. If t was an incredible instrument, Stephen Stills would still own it! If HE sold it…
Great show today! It seemed more relaxed than some of late. Also, are you aware that John Lowell just released a new album? We chatted with him and his wife at the Tom Rush concert recently and they mentioned it and it came out last week. We have it ordered, but haven’t got it yet. I got into John’s music after seeing your interview with him ages ago on TAC – we have all the albums you featured plus a few more. Anyway, great show! Hugs all around!
What happened no A.T. # 108. Very sad!!!
Please help…..the past two weeks I have not been able to start your Acoustic Tuesday show from any of the links that I previously was able to view it on including youtube or acoustic life.tv. When I get tot the page, the video link is missing
I can get the podcast, but I cannot find any video of AT108….it doesn’t load from the links
Second week in a row the video isn’t available to view. I’d send a screenshot if i could to show you what were seeing.Do we now have to wait until Wednesday to watch?

Id keep it. Im not very wealthy but I don’t need more money and provided the suits]ar sounds amazing, Id keep it and play it.
Sell the Still’s guitar. Its way cool, and I would want to keep it for awhile before selling it but $85,000 could buy me all the guitars I could possibly want to own and play and then some.
No way on God’s green earth would I sell that guitar. For one thing, who knows what it would be worth in another ten years or so. But beyond that, owning that guitar is owning a piece of history.
I just saw #108,wonderful,i loved it.i love all the artist you show,totally beautiful.john Lowell,beautiful.i love the white stripes,and jacks record stores.i wish he would invest in Florida.next to the hard rock hotel,were I live.that would be great.my win of the week,i saw a Willie Nelson concert last night,i love that artist..and his band.and Tigger..amazing man,a great artist.thank you Tony and Noah,for making me crack up,see you at#109 love your fan,pamela I am very busy working everyday.!!💡👍🎉😀🎸🎤🎸🎸🥁👍
I watched the John Lowell concert at Dennison Lodge and I noticed that the fellow playing with John (Ben something) was playing a guitar I’d never seen before. It wasn’t a 6 string, it was 8 string in 4 pairs. Please excuse my ignorance but I’d like to know what kind of guitar it was.
Ahoy fellas from sunny Sarasota, Florida. Regarding vinyl making a comeback. It sure seems that it is. It should because in the eyes and ears of this commentator, it is by far the best delivery format there has ever been. There was something lost in the digital uprising and the only word I can come up with is Character. There has been a measure of character lost in the sound and heaping pile lost in the album art. Another thing lost is the care given to vinyl vs. the other formats since. We were caring with records and the jackets. We were more apt to toss a cassette on top of the player or the car seat when switching them out. The same goes with CD’s. Now with streaming it is such a sterile process. While the listening experience is great the total experience is lost. I venture to say that folks are more likely to guess the song lyrics than to look them up where as with other formats you had it in your hands, ready to go, the first time you gave the new material a listen. Not to say that was always the case. My sister thought The Stones, Beast of Burden said, “Never leave your pizza burning.” And who can forget Elton John’s Tiny Dancer being mistaken for “Tony Danza.”
Another thing that I have thought of over the years is paying for the same music over and over again with each evolution that has come our way. I’ll use AC/DC’s Back in Black. We bought that on vinyl in 1980. Then on 8 track, then on cassette, then the CD. That is four times I paid for the music I originally bought the rights to 39 years ago because I was bottlenecked into it. Brilliant marketing really, with only a fraction of loot going to the artist’s. I think there might be a cellular phone company out there that does something very similar? Just saying. I hope that with more and more artists creating their own publishing companies and marketing their own creations, that they will lead the way in this resurgence of vinyl.
Why would he be taking it there anyway?(pawnshop) That Guitar would bring better $$ at Auction, but as I understand the TV haggling is to make a “SHOW” , the kid gets his $90,000 difference made up by the Tv guys. BUT for whatever reason the guy wants to sell, if he was a true Guitar Geek he’s keep it. but Money talks Bs walks.
I cannot believe he sold that guitar. It will only get more valuable over time. Tell Noah to lose one of the ear rings.
