Hey Yiannis,

Glad to see you here. How's the '39 D-18 working out for you? Mine is great!

Thanks,David.
The '39 D-18 is a great and quality sounding guitar.Still can't believe that i close that close to a legendary guitar like this.
I really have to record some music and have it sent to you.It shares many common tonal qualities with your excellent '39 D-18.
Some times the sound changes due to weather conditions,but it's there most of the times.
Enjoy!

Best,
Yiannis

Yiannis,
I seem to see you everywhere on the net (UMGF, YouTube, Flatpick Network). You seem like such a positive guy, so I thought I'd make contact. We have a lot in common in terms of age, guitars, and musical taste. I, too, have a 1939 D-18, but I bet yours is in much better condition than mine! I also have a '39 Gibson J-35, a 1943 Gibson SJ, and a 1994 Collings D-2H. All refinished and funky (accept the Collings). They all sound great though!. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and that I enjoy your posts and comments!

Yassos Yiannis!!
I went to Tessaloniki many many years ago......I am very happy to see the number of european flatpickers is increasing. Maybe for you it's easier as you have a great Bouzooki tradition..... Anyway KEEP PICKING!!

Chad,
Glad to hear from you too! Yes,it seems that G.A.S. is a disease...And surely UMGF is the reason!
I'm a flatpicker here in Greece,i was trying all alone to play that kind of music(bluegrass).
Yes,i do own a late '39 D-18 maybe the cleanest in the world,but...refinished.It's a great sounding guitar though.I'm more of a player than a collector.
I had an original Engelmann topped '53 D-28 2 months ago,so i traded it+cash to get that '39 D-18.
My other guitars are:
'51 00-18,'63 D-18,'76 HD-28,J.Walker J-35 replica,custom made Mike Vanden Alpine/Brazilian(the most sonorous guitar i've ever played),'93 Larrivee D-50 rosewood,a,and a parlor Regal.
I'm having a Blazer&Henkes shaded top D-18 on order too.

Best,
Yiannis

"Very nice, clean, rendition of this old civil war song, and the tone of your guitars is great! (You know that Elvis recorded this in the 1950's as "Love Me Tender?")  Wish I had  ason to pick with!"

"This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!"
