    NGD: 1951 Epiphone Broadway Regent

    Just got it. Plays great. Good strong voice. So I suck at photography. It's going to get a new pickguard and pickup. The Gibson BJB it's got now doesn't like bronze strings, but as an acoustic it's definitely a keeper.

    HR design and build thread part III - The build.

    The upper two restate the curve on the headstock. The bottom one was suggested in an earlier version of this thread. I thought they would be useful as starting points.

    This is quick and dirty. I hope it helps.

    HR design and build thread part III - The build.

    I narrowed the pickups by 1/8", made the bridge pickup longer to compensate for the wider polepiece spacing, and increased the angle. This looks better to my eye. What do you guys think?

    Cool Guitar Purchase

    So my daughter decided it was time to buy herself a guitar. She had about $500 saved and asked me to help. We hit some shops and figured out quickly that she was going to want something about the size of a Martin 000. We tried everything we could find in three shops including some used Martins...

He was opposed by a rebel group that called themselves the Sandinistas that had formed in Nicaragua. I started thinking about all the people there that were not...

    Amp or electric cello

    My wife has a Yamaha SVC-110. We need to amplify it. We would like to achieve as close to an acoustic cello sound as we can get. Any versatility after that would be a plus. It would mostly be used in an acoustic guitar centered band at relatively low volume. Any experience or advice?
