Well, I treated myself to a new Epiphone acoustic guitar. Nice guitar and sounds and plays really well.
Bought a Gibson 335 style copy guitar. Plays well.
Bought a Line 6 Spider 30 watt amp. Now learning how to use it.
And I finally bought a turntable. Ya  hoo!


Tony Smith guitar. I bought the one on the left. http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/ontai/item/1435280/

Hi GZ
No, I bought the Epiphone at the local music store and the amp and the Tony Smith at a guitar techs store. Got a fairly good price on the amp. The Spider Line 6 is OK, but i wish it had two inputs, only comes with one guitar input.

Hi Dean

Yeah been busy bum'n around Japan. Bought a s****** and put 1800 kilometers on it. LOL
I'll post some pictures now that I got them all sorted out.

I really like the Ephiphone. I had the guitar tech do a set up on it and bought a Dean Markley ProMag Grand pickup. So nice of a tone.

I think Epiphone gits are a good "value".  That appeals to me.  I have an older PR350E that was my first git.  I still enjoy playing it.  Even though it is a laminate top, it doesn't lack for good sound.  The only thing that got me to a Taylor GC3 is the wider nut.  The older and more arthritic my fingers get, the more I need the increased string spacing; 1 3/4 vs 1 11/16.  I also had an Epi EL-00 that I gave to my grand daughter.  It also was a good value and great player.  I've since replaced the EL-00 Parlour with a Taylor GS Mini.  Even though the Mini has a narrower nut, the shorter scale makes up for it.        Great to hear from you, stay in touch!!

KEEPING IT FUN, Dean

Maybe some guitar amp genius knows a way to set up a second input. Looked around and did find a bridge like the one on your new Epiphone...guitars made in Oregon, brand name Breedlove...very similar string through bridge design.
