Re: strings again (reply)
When playing as a bluegrass band, my D-28 compliments the tone of an original pre-war flathead mastertone and a pre-war Kay bass, using J-22 nickel wound or Tony Rice Monel strings. We discovered the tone quality and instrument...

Why not make your own Ivoroid picks? I lost the heal cap on my D-28 and made a replacement.http://www.lmii.com/products/mostly-wood/bindings-purflings/end-graft/heel-cap-material

Re: why so many southern songs about missing home? (reply)
This old boy WENT BACK TO DIXIE, and never left again! Back in the mid 70's, I got tired of shoveling coal and moved to New Jersey for a couple of years. The only song I can think of for my time in NJ, the Flatt and Scruggs song, "Doin'...

Re: "a J-45 has no place in bluegrass!" (reply)
In bluegrass, I'd rather hear a J-45 than a Taylor guitar! In a jam, I don't think it makes much difference what you play, but on stage or recording, I'm playing my D-28!

Re: First time stringing up my new D18 standard.... Lifespan 7200 or 6200? Elixir? (reply)
Elixir's sound dead, but they sound dead for a long time and your guitar will scream, "use the wire cutters, use the wire cutters"! Give a set of Tony Rice Martin Monels a try and listen to your D-18 talk to you!

Re: Off to the Spartanburg Guitar Show!!!!! (reply)
I forgot to take a camera too! I enjoyed the show and had a good time talking to old friends, I haven't seen in years. I looked at the Claude Casey, but didn't play it and that 1953 D-28 was one fine guitar!
