Re: What guitar do you play onboard?

I play the ultimate - Air Guitar. I can play every note of every song, even the one's I've never heard before. I can switch between bass, acoustic, electric, drums, keyboard, horns, etc in a split second, and toss in some off key lyrics if nobody is around. Plus, I can bring everywhere without any hassle.

If I'm anchored in a nice spot and the guy anchored next to me comes out into the cockpit wearing pants like that I'm going to move.

It really does deliver everything Taylor advertises it as. They call it the secret weapon of their different models. The only thing I changed was replacing the stock traditional piezo pickup with an L.R. Baggs I-Bridge. This was years before the Expression System was available. Much more natural sound plugged in.

The size is very comfortable for an average size guy like me, the sound is awesome and has only gotten better as it has opened up over the years, it stays in tune like crazy, and it's very easy on the eyes, of course.

Follow my blog at stingysailor.wordpress.com

They are great guitars. Changing the neck out doesn't require a second mortgage either which makes them great boat guitars too. The key being that they are engineered guitars to precision which was not possible many years ago... To quote taylor.

That being said, my next guitar will probably be a martin. I actually liked picking the martin better than the taylor but the taylor at that price range sounded better all the way through. However, i nearly bought a 914ce. That girl sings. The tuners are incredible and precision. Much better than the 814. Very incremental. That guitar is the best production guitar I have played... Except (EXCEPT) for Bob Perrys old j-200. The issue with the 914 is i knew if I whipped that thing out, everyone would be expecting me to play like Paige. Instead, after my rendition of Stairway to Heaven, they would think Meatloaf ate Paige and I would be shunned from the boating community and forever ridiculed!!! Hehehe!!!

Re: What guitar do you play onboard?

Dad:
My JS-200 is not old unfortunately. I got it as a gift right after Spike died, 2.5 years ago. It's a relatively new axe. My pal thought it might cheer me up. It didn't but I still enjoy playing it. And it looks so cool! It took me a while to warm up to the bulk, after the OM -28, but the bottom end is amazing. It was on my "guitars to own before I die" list. My buddy knew that. It's a very long list and I am running out of time. I keep the OM-28 here beside me in the office and the JS-200 down in the living room. I like to pick along to David Allan Coe or Schubert.

The JS-200 didn't play worth a damn when I got it. I had played others and I thought WTF is wrong with this one. But it was a gift so I couldn't complain. I took it into Tommy's Guitars in Everett and had them go over it. It plays like a dream now. Silky action, great intonation and a sound that is addictive.

They're just Gotoh 510s. 18:1 gear ratio. You can put them on anything you want for like $70.

STEWMAC.COM : Gotoh Midsize 510 Tuners with Metal Knobs

I'm not a huge fan, because the teeth on the gears are tiny and are more easily stripped, although I've never actually seen it happen with Gotohs (I have with 18:1 Grovers). Musicians are generally used to making small adjustments, so I don't feel like the difference between 14:1 or even 12:1 is a big deal, but if you like them it's an easy change.

Taylor makes good stuff. The kits that they have for luthiers to do neck jobs are ridiculously convenient. The closest thing to interchangeable parts in the acoustic guitar world.

Re: What guitar do you play onboard?

Bob, thought you had a vintage j-2 jumbo. My bad. I played a pro guitar friends many years ago. It was his baby. But no way you are putting that cello on a boat!
