Reports I heard from the shows were that the sound was indeed very good. The light show and the set break images were also fantastic.

Re: Fare Thee Well (reply)
While the press continually referred to them as the Grateful Dead, the FTW shows were marketed as "Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead". That was also on the tickets. The band has stayed the course on mothballing the Grateful Dead name...

Great find! The specs are very well thought out, a very beautiful, understated look and a focus on the sound and playability.

Re: Help - neck reset on 50s Martin - neck join has been epoxied! (reply)
I have found Brian West at Fretco in Adelaide is very good. He has done first class resets on a couple of my Martins.

Thomastik Infeld Plectrum might get you the result you are looking for. They are not cheap, but they last.

They don't call themselves the Grateful Dead. The press calls them the Grateful Dead. The shows are marketed as "Celebrating 50 years of Grateful Dead". The Grateful Dead part is in big letters, of course.

Re: Roy Rogers' OM-45 Deluxe? (reply)
It was a 1930 and he paid $100 for it. Later production OM-45 Deluxe had different pick-guard inlays to the prototype Rogers guitar.

Re: Your "Top Three" "Must-have" Martin Specifications? (reply)
Red Spruce top OM BRW back and sides This would be a good start. I'm hoping that the Custom Shop does not assign 1 5/8 inch neck or 5/16 inch straight braces.

Re: Grateful Milestone (reply)
I watched the first of the Fare Thee Well concerts yesterday, $20 for a webcast of the show from nugs.net. It was an impressive performance, at least as good as any of the post GD bands I have seen. Trey Anastasio did an excellent job,...

Re: Serial # for Martin guitar (reply)
I think it is, in fact, a 2013. The Martin chart shows the last serial number for the year.

Re: How come almost all guitars (not 'slide' guitars) don't have a zero fret? (reply)
Could you expand on that? Sure thing. A zero fret has strings resting on it when the guitar is in idle mode ie tuned to pitch but not being played. It serves one of the functions of a nut in the sense that it holds the strings a...
