  1. Very nice @matonanjin - all mahogany guitars are great. I have an O-17 that I really like.
  2. Congratulations on your new guitar!
  3. Sounds like you might regret not getting the EC. You can always pick up a 000-15M.
  4. Yes - your missing piece is a bushing. Do you have a local guitar shop you can take it to? They likely have a stock of extra bushings that would fit your guitar. Should be a quick fix.
  5. No matter what strings I try, I always come back to phosphor bronze Elixir Nanoweb or John Pearse (both 12-53). I do have Martin's Authentic Acoustic Lifespan mediums (13-56) on a couple Martin guitars. I recently purchased some Ernie Ball Earthwood phosphor bronze (12-54) and some of the new D'Addario XS phosphor bronze (12-53) - but I haven't tried them yet.
  6. This is available locally - if one of you purchases it, I will be happy to pick it up for you. 🙂
  7. The conference is basically over when Steve distributes the tickets to NAMM on Saturday morning (at the NAMM show). I plan on heading home after I leave NAMM - however, I only have a five hour drive - which will get me home before dark.
  8. Congratulations on your new guitar - it is a beauty!
  9. Greg, I tried to play a traditional classical guitar - I actually found the same model that Steve plays - but I could not get used to the wide and non-radiused fretboard. I decided to go with a crossover model - slightly narrower radiused fretboard, and a cutaway. The model I have is a Cervantes (Crossover 1R). I am very happy with it. I am sure there are many other great choices out there. Best wishes in your search! Dave
  10. Noting pathetic about a guy doing something he loves. Rock on!
  11. This evening I spent some time admiring the Christmas decorations and listened to one of my favorite guitar Christmas CDs- Pete Huttlinger's 'First Light'. You can listen to samples at the link. What is your favorite?
  12. @matonanjin – you are most perceptive. Yes – I did leave out the ‘What happened to that guitar?’ part of the story. So here you go. I had looked at Gruhn’s sinker OOOO’s when I attended the fingerstyle retreat last fall. Not needing another guitar, not being a big Martin fan, and not being interested in an OOOO-sized guitar, I didn’t even pick one up. Mark Cantwell (PapaMark) can fill you in on the details of those as I believe he eventually purchased one. At the time, I asked someone at Gruhn’s if they were planning to make sinker mahogany OM’s and they said ‘no’. However, as I wrote a
  13. William - Give Greg a call or ask for him at the front desk - he will make sure you get royal treatment at Gruhn's! Hope you have a great time.
