#3 What’s On the Turntable This Week?
This week’s featured acoustic artist is Tim Stafford, who is an acoustic guitar player you need to know. He’s a fantastic flat picker, an all around incredible songwriter and composer. Some of his instrumental stuff will leave you weak in the knees.

#2 Orange Acoustic Preamp
I received this acoustic preamp to check out. I gave it a try and I’m very impressed with it. It’s a two channel pre, and channel A actually utilizes a tube so you are able to get this wonderful, rich, harmonic blend. Channel B has a mic input with switchable fan and power. You can effectively play your guitar plugged in and in front of a mic all in one unit!

#1 Thompson Cuban Mahogany Dreadnought Review
I featured this guitar in a past episode of Acoustic Tuesday, but I need to share it again. My Thompson Cuban Mahogany Dreadnought is mind blowing. The string spacing, responsiveness, bark, overall volume – is amazing. It literally will make banjos run away with their tails between their legs.

Just watched Episode 62 and was curious about the Gunter Hotel that Robert Johnson did his first recording in and found this through a Google search. Not sure if it is the same location though. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/satgs-sheraton-gunter-hotel-san-antonio/
The Gunther Hotel is part of the Sheraton chain today, but Room 414 is still there and available to reserve. A good friend of mine was taken there for his 50th birthday so he could play guitar all night in that special room.
