Is there someone out there who has a Bacon and Day Senorita for sale? Is this a great blues acoustic guitar or am I trying to substitute matterial for talent?

I have one; from the 40s I guess. They are great, funky blues & old-time guitars. Regal made them for B&D who were banjo makers. Be warned, though, the necks are very, very large V-shape. I don't play mine much--I use a Recording King when I need to play a 16" jumbo. The neck on the RK is slightly better for me.
I'm in middle Tennessee; if you're in the area you're welcome to come play--see what you think.

Bruce,
I`m very interested in the guitar. I live in Montana, but I could arrange to check it out in May. I will be traveling x-country to my daughter`s college graduation. I would love to give it a play. If you`re thinking of selling or trading it before that time please contact me.

I recently read Bruce Nemerov's post on his B&D guitar plus a fellow whose favorite guitar is his S6 H.

If any of these 2 guys reads this I would appreciate a reply .

I have a wonderful s2H and have also been looking to buy a early 30's vintage   s7 like John faheys guitar.

I also would like to connect with B&D guitar owners so we can keep in touch. Please feel free to post and perhaps aid in connecting a small grouip of B&D guitar fans.

Thanks
Kev

Kevin--
just stumbled across this thread revival. I haven't had the time to monitor mudcat last year or two.
As a former Bay Area musician and hanger-out at Lundbergs' when I lived in Berkeley (a long time ago), I'd guess we know some of the same people.
I've been in Tennessee for quite a while, though I do get out to the coast a couple times a year.
And I still have the B&D; though it sits in the closet, mostly.
Regards,
Bruce Nemerov

I've been hunting for a B&D Senorita for years - always seem to be a day late and a dollar short. Anyone have one for sale or know where one can be had?

Bruce, what style is your B&D - Om or dread size, 12 or 14 fretter, X or ladder braced, back & sides wood, nut width?

Thanks, Tim
