New guitar
« on: January 27, 2010, 04:45:10 AM »
Just received an Oscar Schmidt Bruno concert guitar from Neil Harpe after waiting over a month for customs, transit etc.

So, pick up at airport, sinstralise, tune up, record - not bad for a morning.

Sound sample and photo attached, scan of 1912 C.Bruno catalogue to follow.

And we all thought you were going to buy a new Taylor....

Yes it'll be coming to Euroweenie, no it won't be de-sinistralised! you'll just have to play upside down.

I'd rather have a b%%@j@ than a Taylor! (I can't believe I said that, but it's true - after all, it would have more bass and better tone.)
