  1. Me, I own a 2011 New Hartford made Guild F 30 CE (mahagony with spruce top) which is a nice and well balanced sounding acoustic. Then, 2 years ago, I got myself a Fender Paramount PM-1 limited dreadnought, which is kinda like the poor man's D28: east Indian RW body, mahagony neck, ebony fretboard and Adirondack spuce top. Bought it for a little over 700 EUR over Amazon from Great Britiain by the time everybody was scared because of the (then) CITES regulations on rosewood. It's China-made, but it is a wonderful instrument that gets better sounding almost every day that delivers all the dreadnought goods - great bang for the buck - eeh EUR...
  2. It really is Germany! The Beatles played in Hamburg long before they became a thing or The Thing and Elvis served in Germany...🤣
  3. Changed the bridge on my '94 Tele standard for the Callaham 3-saddle compensated replacement and threw out the entire electronics in favour of a complete RS assembly and I ain't lookin' back!
  4. Hof has always been the first place in the free world for us West-Berliners after passing through East German territory for like five hours... My wife and I like Frankonia (is that Franken in English??) very much and spent many weekends there. Good to know a Hamerite's wife is in charge there now!
  5. Yes, a blessed and happy new year to all of you!!
  6. Thomann still has them in stock: https://www.thomannmusic.com/dean_markley.html
  7. Nice mixture - a little 60's beat music, a little Wishbone Ash (twin guitar lead work) and then some...
  8. Yepp, Glenn - but his playing is only second to his voice - man, what a singer!! Got everything REZ and some of his solo stuff. And a great guy! Had the privilege to meet and greet at a REZ concert in Berlin shortly after the wall came down.
  9. I heard a lot of so-called contemporary christian music in the 70's and 80's. There were quite a few string slingers that inspired me: Phil Keaggy - of course, though he's kinda semi-famous by now, and there was this sideman of Larry Norman, a guy called Jon Linn (he passed away many years ago in a car crash) who did some incredible stuff. Being a big Stones fan in the late 60's and 70's as well, Mick Taylor would make it to the list - yeah, I know, too well known...
  10. Always wondered about those weird pickups. I remember from those early GP adds that they even sold them as spares...
  11. R.I.P. Ginger. You gave rhythm to many of my days!
  12. I'm afraid to state the obvious: guitar Has been bulid by our own BCRGreg...
  13. Folks, that is an unreal amount of gear - wow !! Someone get those Mesa Maverick heads - one of the most underrated amps ever, IMHO... And then there's this gem: https://www.julienslive.com/m/lot-details/index/catalog/312/lot/122070?url=%2Fm%2Fview-auctions%2Fcatalog%2Fid%2F312%3Fpage%3D15 😁😁😁
