  • #smallwin Picked up my Art & Lutherie guitar from getting some repairs and also bought a Taylor 224ce -K DLX
    BobP from Alexandria VA

  • Retired at 61 and decided to look into picking up a used guitar and got fascinated by the used guitar market and history of acoustic guitar manufacture. #smallwin. I acquired a vintage Martin style 34 built in 1899 at an auction. Actually I think that’s a big win. #guitarsenal I acquired 5 guitars at the auction including a 1969 Martin D12-35 and a 1974 Martin N-10

    Thanks for a greatly entertaining and informative show.

  • * great win I am start to get my retheme going and my speed on a couple of flatpicking to 120. have a long way to go. I pick up a Metronome called “Qwik Timer” works great and ease, and don’t run down my phone battery. cost me $20.
    Has Tony every played an Alvarez Yairi, or master, if so is Martin a better guitar. I need to save up for a more playable guitar some day.

    • Don’t know about Tony but I had a Yairi Alvarez that I sadly sold to get my J-45. Wish I could have kept it, cedar top with hog back and sides it was fabulous. My Gibson is also fabulous so one in one out keeps the wife happy.

  • Hey guys love your show you inspire an old dog to keep trying. For years I have been lugging around a heavy old school Peavey PA and speakers and all the stuff that goes with it to 20 0r 30 small shows a year in our area. Last week my wife and I stopped in to our local music store Music Villa. And Boom!! My small win was when we left with a Bose L1 and a Tech 21 Acoustic Stic Fly Rig. Thanks and PS I’m a Elijah Craig fan.
