"Hi Josh The HD-35 is one of the best guitars comming out of Nazareth. A 1994 still has some maturing to do, The tone will settle in with time. The more you play the better."

"Blueridge makes fine guitars, good action good tone. If a Martin is not in your budget, by all means get a Blueridge."

"Has anyone played a Martin D28 Dan Tyminski ? I believe the Martin D18GE and the D28 Tyminski are the best guitars Martin is making. My goal is to make the Dan Tyminski my next purchase."

"Hi I play a 2006 Martin D18GE, mohogany back and side , adirondak top, loud, clear, responsive, wonderful presence. I also play a 1994 Martin D41, warm, clear, but not as loud."

"I realize this is an older comment, however I am a D18 lover. I own 2 Martins, a D41 which is a fine guitar. My favorite is a D18GE, this is a killer, loud, responsive, with such presence. I love D28s, but D18 are bad to the bone"

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
