Hi Seamus,

Thought of you toaday whilst posting comments on the collings forum.  I well remember your seeking out appropriate 12 fret dreads for me (Martin, Santa Cruz and Collings) I readed my Bourgeois DS260 and came  home with (I believe) the secnd DS2h in the UK (I see you kept one!)

I visited your shop in Norfolk one day but sadly you weren;t there.  I often quote you as the best guitar sales person I ever met - trying to find the right instrument for the client rather than the other way around and I've never seen a faster string changer than you !


Sorry to see vntage Guitar Co disappear - that speaks more of the times than of your shop, but hope that all is well with you.

 

All the Best,

 

Andrew Perry (from Wild West Sussex) Still picking a now battered but beautiful Ds2h).

Hi Seamus, 

Ever the salesman , good on you ! 

Yes I use capos on all my dreadnoughts,my two 12 strings,  my 000, and my square neck dobro (on which I use a Scheerhorn capo) .  I will shortly have a second Weissenborn style instrument for which I will seek a capo. For guitars , my old Shubbs never seem to wear out, and fit comfortably in my brass pick boxes along with an intelli tuner ... and my precious picks. 

 

Did you by any chance get the very first Ds2h in the country - the one reviewed in Guitarist ? I recently aquired a DS1 which is superior but I love 'em both.

Norman's Preferences

I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
