Greetings From Oakland California

Post by pcstjohn » Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:34 pm

In love with classical guitars - as a lifelong woodworker I'm now exploring the sound of wood's vibrations.I play every day & am beginning to work on them as well. This is an amazing resource & I'm grateful for all I'm learning here.

I stumbled around a steel string for a year getting no place interesting then a friend lent me his Takamine C132S for several months. The 2"nut had almost enough room for my fat fingers & the sounds it conjured up amazed me. Been at it ever since...

That Takamine was 20+ years old, lived in a hot/cold/dry/wet camper for months at a time & performed "in a professional manner" under all kinds of conditions. That thing was BUILT. So now I have a thing for vintage Japanese guitars... Moe
