John Hardly New Guitar (18) RE: New Guitar 06 Jan 09

Mick, This'll be my first year in a LONG time to not do East Lansing Art Festival. I'll PM you if I get up to Elderly's. I've got a gallery carrying my work up in Charlevoix and I might take the long way up this Spring.

Frog, I'm guessing that a ceramic guitar would ring on forever. There's some guy in Australia whose been building glass guitars. Apparently ceramic makes for lotsa sustain. Good luck with the guitar gift thing. Tell Judy that Jim's got another guitar (he built last year) hanging on the wall. It's sort of a D-21 -- spruce and mahogany with dark wood binding and a burl soundhole ring. Great guitar.

Wesley, Some day I'll post long about my friend, Jim Shenk. Everyone (it seems) in Northern Indiana knows about him, but Jim's chosen to purposely stay small -- as such, he's as busy as he can handle. And he's a happy man. It's nice to meet a guy who can keep his life and his priorities in perspective. He calls his shop "Wooden Music" and it has one of the strongest gravitational pulls of any music center I've ever known. You can't go in there on a Saturday and not meet a few dozen musical (pro and am) locals. I highly recommend a visit if you are EVER in the area.

Bruce, If you make it back up this August, maybe I can break free, drive up to Nappanee and we could play a tune or two. I think you'd like the guitar.

Amos, Yup, she's a great woman. Way better than I deserve.

Thanks, kendall, lox, and hamish!
