It was along about that time that Blind Lemon Jefferson came through, and he stayed around there about a month. He stayed with the other colored fellows and they worked on the railroad there; he'd just sing and play to entertain the men in the work camp. I think that right about there I started on the guitar - Hobart Smith recalls Lemon in Virginia, c. WWI, from Blacks, Whites and Blues by Tony Russell

Your Guitar Buddies in this Isolation Time
« on: April 16, 2020, 02:50:02 PM »
Howdy:

I just thought that folks might list what guitars they have out and are playing in these times.

I'll start. In my livingroom I have out at the present:

1) refinished (red) early 30's parlor with cream MTS pickguard
2) 1933 Gibson L-00. black with firestripe pickguard
3) 2013 Gibson Keb Mo model
4) 2014 Martin 00-28 custom shop
5) 30's Style 1 May Bell labled American Conservatory of Music Inc.
6) late 30's Regal mini-jumbo. Body sort of like a Kalamazoo KG-11 with thicker body.

Currently playing a 1978 Fannin D-18 copy, a 20 some year old Epiphone (El cheapo), and a borrowed Skylark electric.

Frailer,

I wish I could, but it was only once for about 15 minutes.
Edit: Looking at Tony's site, I think it was a Larson OM. Simply wonderful!

I rediscovered my Martin 000-16 which had been "maturing" (i.e. gathering dust) gracefully, unplayed, for the last ten years. Wow, what was I thinking neglecting to play it for so long. With the dust blown off, even with old strings on, it sounds and plays great.

We're both fully vaxed-up and looking forward to music camp in the Catskills starting July 5th for a week. The 000-16 is definitely going with me.
