Re: D-18GE not being cancelled? (reply)

Re: Tinnitus and hearing aids (reply)
I got digital (Oticon) hearing aids a few years ago.  After I got them, I understood why everyone thought the '59 D-28 I bought from Bryan Sutton in 2003 was such a great guitar and also, what a lousy guitar player I actually was.  LOL!

Re: What do you look for in Guitar - what does it have to have ? (reply)
Volume and balance. I play in lots of BG jams so loud is good - and balance matters as well. Condition of the instrument (as long as it's set up properly for me) is irrelevant. My .02
