Greetings from the soon to be great white north!
Its been a crazy summer - I guess with a foot of snow in the offing next week, it's time to move on to winter.
As I mentioned in one of TF's recent threads, there's been a little "horse trading" going on here.
My Hohner dobro and Martin DXP... fell to the kijiji axe under the guise of "thinning the herd." But - nature abhors a vacuum and several replacements just happened to nudge their way into the picture.
The herd as it sits today:
The recent acquisitions:
Beside the 12 string on the far wall is "the piano" - a very loud drednaught, hand-built by my jam partner back around 1980. It ousted the Martin and dobro.
On the wall to your right is the mando-banjo - I'm pretty sure it's a MANjo (1930's?) and a long dead stella mandolin from the 30's also
Between the Uke and the Solitaire (no front sound hole) is the Simon & Patrick parlour guitar.
Right of the Solitaire is the Epiphone ES-175 premium - sweet arch top
Hiding behind is the yard guitar - an Art & Luthier, of the Godin family (as is the S&P) and a couple random electrics.
Yikes! Sounds like a lot when you list 'em like that. I better shuffle them around the house again so they are harder to count ;)
Nothing else on the radar but you never know...
