Vintage Instruments is too far up the $ scale. I wish we could go to Mandolin Brothers, but my location and work schedule prevent that. Does Blueridge make any 14-fret 000 size models with a 1 3/4 inch nut? I know Maury sells Blueridge.

Re: Philadelphia Area Guitar Shops (reply)

Re: I Have Developed A Love For Playing OLD TIME Music (reply)
I was looking at that arch top Martin in the first video - it looks like my 1935 Martin R-18.  I grew up thinking that was the only kind of guitar playing.  Things have changed!!

I use Gigbook. You can bring your pdf files directly from your computer, no need to use drop box. You can organize your music sheets in different collections. For new music I also use Music Notes.

A 1960s Goya G-10 can take light gauge steel. 25" scale, 00 size, 2"'wide comfortable neck. Often under $500, made in Sweden. Birch back and sides, however.

Great music - and the guy's playing what sure looks to be a vtg Martin archtop. These aren't [AFIK] the 1st/go-to choice for old-time backup guitarists, but clearly works well for him.
