C.F. Mountain - Massive Violations of Business Ethics.

I've never once put my hands on one of these things - not that I recall, anyway.  I've been fooling with steel string acoustics since I was twelve years old though, and me and my grandfather used to hit every flea market within a hundred miles to buy them cheap, repair (if needed) and re sell them.

 

So likely I HAVE played a "C.F. Mountain" guitar, but the lack of ethics in the name and display is astonishing.

I've seen some on ebay but I've never actually played one.

Hey Steve - thanks for commenting!  On the Hubpages article that I linked here, a guy in England named "Dave" is telling me that he'd not trade his "C.F. Mountain" guitar for anything.  I could possibly be wrong as to the quality of some of these instruments - but if I had one, I'd still take some sand paper to the head stock, and I'd never try to tell anyone that it was anything other than what it is.

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
