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.

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…"
