Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

After having warped a few 6 string guitars since the 70's (old geezer that I am) I bought a Blackbird (Blackbird Guitars | Carbon Fiber Guitars | Carbon Fiber Travel Guitars) several years ago after reading about them in Cruising World and checking them out. They are carbon fiber and a smaller than a dreadnaught (guitar, not battle cruiser) and don't warp, stay tuned, don't discolor, sound terrific. Downside is that they wouldn't scare a big powerboat with a generator away from my berth...

I'll take you up on it. I'll even show you teh Gee-tar version. I ain't singing it though! I will let Kris (wife) do that. SHe made me learn it before I could get my Taylor. I thought that a fair deal!!

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

Looking forward to it Brian. And, she gave you a great deal with the Taylor. I always have a couple extra mics--does she use a headset or handheld mic? I have both.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

I still have the '68 Gibson Southern Jumbo that I bought when I was 16. I've been playing for almost 44 years now, but in truth I think I've actually only played the first 4 years 11 times. Time has given me a semi-bum right shoulder, so the jumbo is hard to wrap my arm around now, along with my Martin D-41. Playing around the house I use a Takamine nylon string or a Martin OMC Aura. I got a Little Martin to play on the boat. The Jimmy Buffett edition with the palm trees and sailboat on the front. What else?

Mike

I'll let you meet her first. My wife will stand up and sing wonderfully in church, esp in choir, but you will also find she is very shy and avoids a spot light. Good gal. Too good for me. ANyways, it may take some Cabo Wabo to get her up there in front of a crowd.

Look forward to meeting you. What is your ETA?

Brian

Love the D-41. Great sound!!

I played a GPACA1 and really liked it. Was a tough call between that and the Taylor 841.

The neck on my Takamine finally warped up and became a great campfire guitar. THe upper frets are fine but anything about 6-8+ has way too much action. It is fixable, but not price-wise for that guitar.

With all these musicians, don't you know we could have one heck of a raft up!

Brian

With luck, if the weather holds, I hope to be there by November 1.

Cheers,

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

I keep a Martin mini aboard our vessel Sugar Magnolia.

The pleasure of strummin a few tunes on deck at sunset is the crowning moment for a great day sailing.

Always handy for impromtu jam sessions. With a boat with our name one must be prepared.

??? Guess that depends on where you are and who's playing? I understand that maybe bagpipes, an oboe, a bassoon and a tuba might not mix well with alcohol and sunsets...but guitar, harmonica and violin can go together particularly well....as long as you call the violin a fiddle.....

Personally, some of the best sunset/camping jams have been just that: Guitar, Harmonica, Violin.....bluegrass jammin at it's finest. Even mix in an accordion on occasion and you've got the makings of Cajun Bug Boil to go down in history!

Sitting around the camp fire, beautiful sunset, adult beverages in abundance....and a serious jam.

Re: Guitar or Other Instrument Players

Oh no, a pin that holds the bridge on the little travel guitar is starting to separate from the body. The hole enlarged over time. Not sure if I should use Satan's Glue or Epoxy to fix this.
