Now knowing that you are a Conrad, this thread falls into place for me!
He’s very polarizing
Ah, from days gone by.
Hey @radd , it's Friday . So did you buy it yet ?
OK, My initials are K-B-S--I have a Breedlove that has a very nice "B" on the notch head, and a Saville baritone that has a very nice "S" --However, I can't find a nice enough guitar with just a "K"---
Find something else interesting to do, or a cool different place to eat, near where "Conrad" the six string lives--that way if you don't like the namesake doppleganger--it's not a wasted trip--
With acoustics I generally don't buy the low end stuff. I have a couple Harmony Sovereign models from the 1960s and they're lower end but really nice. I think I paid $80 for the pair. I also have a Stella 12 string that I did a poor man's neck reset (with a 2x4!) on and it plays nice and sounds good for acoustic fingerstyle blues, which I only play around the house.
Years ago I somehow ended up with an endorsement from Yamaha and I got some PA gear and a D-41 copy. It played great and I thought it sounded good until I put it next to an old Gibson. I also had a nice looking Japan made set neck Epiphone with big inlays that looked great but sounded ok.
If I didn't have a ton of dough I would look for one of the overlooked Gibson models. For example, I have a 1994 Gibson Gospel that I bought for about $500 that's in the ballpark with my 60s J-45. It plays great and sounds great but it's got the funny pickguard, one piece back and scroll logo so a lot of people ignore them.
No, not yet. Your post about seeing two on Reverb got me thinking. I went on Reverb and found a possible less expensive alternative that still gives me the Conrad fix.
A Conrad guitar catalogue
Haven’t decided yet.
Those Gibson Gospels seem to be in the $1800 range today from what I see on the internet. you could definitely make some money on yours. Prices are crazy today.
Get a Kay!
Well isn't that spatial.
Fellow put a waterslide decal on a guitar he built for me that left my name on the headstock.
I felt like one of those ca-huntry and westrin players that have their names inlaid on their fretboards.
And on their custom rhinestone suits from Nudies.
In case they get really drunk one night, fall on their faces and forget who they are.
Yeah, Radd...all your friends are doing it!
Really? That's where they should be. I almost bought a few more because over the years they've been $400 - $600ish. There are a few different Gospel models over the years. I'm talking about the mid-90s one.
I far as I can see they were only made in the 70’s and 90’s. I’m sure age adds to the value but good guitars like you said.
I’d go j45 at that point though.
I hear @radd hangs out with the cool kids in the cafeteria too ............
