    :drif Damn! That's why I could never run a music store. I'm a lousy business man. I could never sell those guitars. They would wind up at my house for sure.

    It helps that I'm an acoustic nut. There are only a couple in there that are straight acoustic, the L5 and the L50. The L50 is a sweet player and goes on a gig once in awhile with me.

    A very crappy photo of my Pearl Export that you can barely see.

    If my son would quit unfriending me on facebook, I would post pictures of the other Pearl Export, Tama Swingstar, and Yamaha Absolute Oak kits, but its not to be.

    I have problems in this world, but drum sets are not one of them. :lol3

    I"ve got a guitar now:lol3. I was driving down our road on garbage day, about 5 minutes in front of the truck, when I noticed this guitar laying on a pile of black garbage bags. It was face down, so barely visible. I stopped and whipped it into the car. Turns out it's a '92 US-made Peavey Predator. From what I read on the web, not really such a bad guitar-pretty good for free!

    I make biscuit tin guitars. This one has a classic Australian muscle car on it, a Holden Monaro. Open tuned to G, fretless and played with a slide. Had basic piezo pick ups that require a pre amp to get a good signal from. I also play Blues harp and sing.

    Honest question here. Which do you like best, the Taylor or the Martin? I play a Martin HD-28 and think it has much more bottom end than the Taylor, and I like a big booming acoustic. It may just be my old ears, but the Taylors sound "tinny" to me. BUT, I see a hell of a lot of people playing them these days.

    I'm partial to the Martin, it was about a year old when I got it so we have a long history. It does sound better than the Taylor IMHO.
