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,

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.

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…"

"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
