    Its birthday will come around his year as well...
    Thanks
    And thanks for sharing your picture as well.

    Back when these guitars were made nice rosewood was much cheaper...

    Another year older eh zontar. The Taro F-114 (formerly known as mine) cleaned up pretty good, and I beat on it for weeks straight. Just so much more comfortable than my dread's. Gave it to one of the kids (mid-thirties, rural, pregnant) & always kinda missed it. Tried to trade a Yamaha FG-331, a Taylor Big Baby, or a Yamaha classical for its return -- but no dice. That's when I knew it had likely found right where it was supposed to be. Turns out it was a lam' b/s/t, but it also turns out nobody cares. It's a cutie-pie, and plays very well. Gotta love a guitar that says, "Pick me up, and play me!"







    Saw this one, and did a screenie.



    Nice to see there's more people who appreciate them.

    & another late HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    Isn't that really the most important thing about a guitar?

    The ones I have bought all said that to me (Along with "Buy me, I'm yours)--metaphorically at least.

    I'm impressed that you can remember the date you bought guitars. I can't even remember what year I bought some of mine

    I have a list of that info--but since this was a Christmas gift it is real easy to remember it without the list

    I keep copies of my gear list in different places so if I ever need it--I have it in one place or he other--but none are online.
