Jim, that particular video is not embeddable. One gets a YouTube window that says you have to watch the video on YouTube, but it won't take you there. Putting in a link wasn't easy; Yuku kept wanting to put the YouTube video picture in,...

Funny! I sat in with that band only a few times before my stroke. He brought both guitars to every gig but usually played the L-5P. I played a few L7P plectrums over the years but funds never matched availability. Dang.

Playing for 40+ years in theater pit orchestras, I agree with playing only three or four notes -- if playing in an ensemble. In fact, had I kept on with it, I would have purchased a four stringed plectrum guitar to match the plectrum...

WOW....!I'm not big on comparisons really, but that one was so beautifully done.  (The first Martin was the one I liked the best.)All sounded terrific in their own ways though....Thanks for sharing.

I saw them around 1976, when they put that live album out. That show was one of best I've seen. Loads of fun, good times, and great playing. Thanks for the link.

It's a new car as far was we're concerned, at least it was when we got it. Mtsusean put it well, someone else squeezed our canteloupe before we got it....I've purchased many pre-squeezed guitars over the years....   Regarding purchasing...

As mtsusean brought up cars, I'll share this to show how "new" was nuanced in my case recently: My wife and I bought her a new car a few months ago. We immediately noticed that the dealer had one example of the model we wanted which was...

If you can't change your strings the conventional way...you should'nt be playing guitar. I have several guitars and I restring them in about 10 min. each. No big deal.

I'm sure you guys got better things to talk about. Since GC has a return policy, what difference does it make. Good customer service as I see it. The folks didn't get stuck with clunkers. Happy Picking.

Thanks, was fun to see them again. My era too, they were a big part of mine, their Mother Lode album is sooo good. I jumped around to some favorites, Watching the River Run, Changes, Same Old Wine and Vahevala, all really well done....

"This guy ordered 3 guitars to try them out and he returns all 3 with in 30 days and he got a full refund." I'm curious whether this whole discussion is based on assumption or fact. Did you confirm he only bought three to try out? Or...

Hi folks, As much as I don't want to make another comment on or about this topic, my problem is not what the retailers or manufactures return policy would be, only, mine, and many others that would believe we would be "purchasing"...
