  1. Thanks for all the suggestions and advice. I ordered a Mojotone, so we’ll see how that works out.
  2. I’m looking to replace the volume pot on a 1980s Prototype. Any suggestions on a new replacement that would be similar to the pots used by Hamer during that era? Thanks!
  3. Years ago, I was in a supermarket in Iowa City where they were playing a Muzak version of Beth by Kiss. It was hilariously syrupy.
  4. Did a salesman assist you in that decision or did you pull the Taylor off the wall on your own and decide you liked it better? I ask because if it was the former, that's another aspect of retail marketing. Sales reps educating sales forces and offering incentives to push the product. I had a similar experience at Tobias Music in IL in the mid-90s. Walked in wanting to buy a Guild, but the owner suggested that I give Taylor a try. I've been a Taylor fan ever since. I loved the sound and feel of Taylor acoustics, and Taylor does a great job of making players feel like they're part of a broade
  5. If you're a beginning looking for a starter guitar, I think that actually looks pretty cool for $137. Looks nicer than the POS Harmony that was the first guitar I ever owned.
  6. Reading through this thread kind of reminds me of that Simpson's episode where Homer's half-brother, Herb, asks Homer to come up with a car “designed for the average man”... The resulting product being “powerful like a gorilla, yet soft and yielding like a Nerf ball.”
  7. Just got my copy. It was really well done. I'm impressed.
  8. Based on this I'd avoid him. Every deal I've entered with so much back story has turned into a problem, whether it being shipping delays, overstated condition to flat out never shipping the item. His life is in turmoil and you are low on his list of issues to get to. I was thinking the same thing as I read it. Agreed. I would avoid it.
  9. Exactly! I would be thrilled if Prince smashed one of my guitars. Would you be thrilled if he slept with your wife?
  10. Huh, what the ...? Per the listing: "This guitar comes from the Mirage series, in a double-cutaway design. However, the previous owner had it modified by a very experienced luthier and so created a very unusual custom guitar."
  11. Despite possible retooling issues, I think the idea of a Phanto-glide Prototype would be really cool, particularly since I believe this is the 30th anniversary of the Prototype.
