Thanks Mate I intend to.. Ok

Michael. I'd be willing to donate $10 to the MFB fund so you can get some flavour concentrates Tongue

MFB? Sounds like a porn acronym. (Sorry I couldn't resist) 
But seriously, what does MFB mean? Am I just a total noob in disguise? 

Also, goodgafternevening everyone Smile 

MFB means Michaels Flat Broke Dance2

Howdy everyone. Rained all night. Might get some thunder storms today. My trees are all looking nice and my garden is growing like crazy. I did a 5 gallon garden this year. I've been working on my other hobby too. I'm a guitar luthier here is the one I fixed up the other day. Goodwill find. It's a 1975 Takamine clone of a Guild F50R. It's one of the Pre- "lawsuite" era models and one of the few that was built as nice if not nicer than the original. All solid woods and just amazing to play. The tone is simply unreal.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

Looking good, Brad! One of my buddies has (or had, I'm not sure cuz it's been a long time) an old Takamine that he got from his dad, I believe it was from the early 80s if memory serves. Anyway I got to play it a few times, it was a very nice guitar... Long story short, congratulations on a great find Tongue

RE: Chat hub
Thanks Michael. I like the older Tak's they are very nice and open up and sound better and better if they are taken care of. The biggest problem with a lot of the guitars from that era are neck problems. I was lucky with this one because it didn't need a neck reset. A lot of them do. I would rather see the bridge pull off than the neck sink in. Much easier to fix. It's the biggest thing to look out for when looking at older acoustics. I come across a lot of them with shaved bridges and saddles. That is a sure sign that the neck is going to need a reset soon. A lot of them are very lightly built, which is nice for sound, but not so nice for lasting a long time. The belly bulge is another problem that pops up a lot but it's not really hard to fix. Even if you are not a luthier you can always use a Bridge Doctor on them and take it out. I wouldn't do that on a high end guitar but if you pick one up cheap it's worth it. I'm buying up old Japanese Acoustics right now. I did the same with old Japanese set neck Les Paul's before they went sky high. I think the good acoustics will go the same way fairly soon. I'm already seeing some go for a lot. the Yairi ones are up there already. Along with the Fender Red Labels and Yamaha Nippon Gaki's. Yasuma's and Yamaki's are also one's to look out for. Even the old Honer "arbor" series are picking up now. The "badged" guitars will go up soon too. Pretty much anything by Matsumoku like the old Ibanez or Aria ones but also odd balls like Crestwood too. Any of the good solid wood Knockoffs of Gibson's or Martin from Japan in the 70's to early 80's are still a steal. Give it five years and you won't find one for under $500 that's playable anyway. I doubt the laminate ones will ever go up much but some of them sound surprisingly nice too, plus a lot of them are in better shape. They don't warp as often and make great guitars for knocking around the campfire. My campfire guitar is a Lotus from Japan. The action on it is so low it plays like an electric but still has great tone. A lot of them just need a proper setup to turn them into great players.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

RE: Chat hub
That's really awesome that you can get deals like that. I hardly ever see used guitars go for decent prices. I called a local pawn shop one time and said I was looking for a guitar in the $300 range, he laughed at me and said "go get a piece of shit from Walmart then" and hung up. I got my guitars either from friends or from Pete's Music City in Calhoun, the band Alabama wrote a song about that shop Tongue
I play a Johnson acoustic, and it sounds great, but my real baby is my Ibanez, can't remember the model but it's called a Fat Strat style, looks like a Strat with slightly sharper edges around it. That thing has taken a good bit of abuse from playing in bands, and needs a little wiring work, but otherwise just as awesome as ever. I love Ibanez electrics because of the super thin necks.
