    Poll: Do you perform regular maintenance on your guitars...???

    I change the strings when they need it, anything else, I have my tech do it. I study guitar playing, not how to work on it.

    Say you have 5K to spend on a killer 335 , what do you buy?

    I bought a used McKay and put some Gil Yaron pickups in it for under $4500. I don't think you can get closer to vintage than that.

    Does anyone else suffer from arthritis in their hands?

    I'm 65 and can't make a fist with my left hand and my right hand has a bit of trigger finger. Doesn't affect my playing except it's hard to fingerpick sometimes, so I hybrid pick instead.

    Entry Level Guitars that played shockingly well for price and build source.

    Do acoustic guitars get better with age?

    I've tried out a bunch of old Martins at a big guitar show recently. I went there with $5K in my pocket. I was looking to buy the best Dreadnaught I could find.

    I have several semi obscure guitars. McKay 335, Mossman Flint Hills from '77, '73 Guild Bluesbird. Purely by accident, I wound up with a stable of guitars and not one of them is a Fender, Gibson, or Martin.

    I have a 1977 Mossman Flint Hills (like a D28). I require a dreadnaught. I took $5000 to the Dallas Guitar Show and this is what I wound up with. I tried a lot of guitars new and old. Martin, Collings, and Thompson were all in the running. I passed on a D14 that still haunts me. The new Martins...
