Ive noticed some avatars. Anybody?
Me too, except that I am not playing bass for money anymore (I am done with the night gigs and having to stay up until the 4:00 am picking up the equipments after the gig). But still and acoustic guitar player (nylon strings) and a songwriter for well over 20 years.Pro bass player and still songwrite with guitar.
I had a crew for that...it was great. I miss those days, but yeah, loading/unloading gear yourself is the worst. I did that from age 16-25 before touring.(I am done with the night gigs and having to stay up until the 4:00 am picking up the equipments after the gig).
If this question is for me, I'll just say that unfortunately I haven't toured with anyone. I'm simply an enthusiast who has played local jazz gigs on and off for years (with some rock thrown in for kicks!).Ok, I'll bite... who did you tour with?
I'm drooling over your guitars man... you've got some serious weapons there. Congrats! By the way, which amp/amps do you have?If this question is for me, I'll just say that unfortunately I haven't toured with anyone.

I've always admired the craftsmanship of a well made archtop.
It is 3/8 but it isn't for sale. First of all, it's quite beat up from years of use. Second, I'm keeping it for sentimental value. I still have the single stripe POG that my mother used during the 80's. As you can see I have a hard time letting go of some things!If it's 3/8ths and you want to sell it, let me know
I know what you mean. All those nice guitars and nothing but some all-plywood POS for us leftys.I dabble in the acoustic arena and have been doing so for about 20 years. One day I must get around to taking a lesson. I just wish there was more than one lefty acoustics I could take off the wall and play when I walk into a guitar shop.
Do you have a favorite guitar out of those?<- this guy right here.
Played with original bands from 16-26 (and still do) and took up the cover band thing to pay for my tennis habit this year.
