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).
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.
. My guitars tend to have wider necks,

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
"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…"
