Re: News has it that Richard Watson has passed away. (reply)
The only information presented is the line "has died, according to various sources".  The lack of any other information about this or the sources is pretty poor reporting.Jim

Re: Gotta great guitar, don't keep it under a bushell, shout it out now!! (reply)

Ted, Newt, Mick, very nice to read that there are some guys who see the big picture. And, if you don't rat on me: I have way more of these plastic guitars. And they are all great! Best regards, Kurt

Re: Anyone used GHS Vintage Bronze? (85/15) (reply)
Yes, I have tried these strings in the past. I strung up my rosewood/red spruce dread with them, and they were fine at first—not as bright as 80/20, not as warm as PB—then after a couple of days they sounded sort of thuddy to me....

Re: Jimmy Buffett in Houston - Martins abundant (reply)
No doubt a great show, as usual, wish I was there! Mac's guitar is an HD-28VS, I believe. He's been playing it for many years, it's been used in most of Jimmy's you-tube videos.
