As for guitars:
1.  An early '70s Martin 00-18 that I got in the late '70s, when everybody else seemed to be playing dreadnoughts, and I couldn't afford.  Now I wouldn't trade it for a dreadnought.
2.  I've also got a strange old half-breed -- it's got both a soundhole and a resonator, and a label something like "B.J. Serenador" -- that I use for slide.
3.  Telecaster, honeyblond with rosewood fretboard.
... but it's a slow consumption, killing me by degrees

? ? ? 1909? Orpheum 5-String open back banjo (new neck)

What style?  Ive seen lots of 1's and 2's, only one each of the fancier style 3 and style 4, though.  I've got an Orpheum Brassband that I love but it's got neck issues.

Well I do have two guitars being built for me by a luthier in State College.  A slope shouldered Gibson SJ clone and a parlour sized guitar.

Shocking but I play a little Mahogany Martin 00-16.? It's all I need right now.? The wife says I shouldn't have more guitars than songs I know.

Here's a pic of me and Spencer Bohren from last year at Jorma Kaukonen's Fur Peace Ranch.? He's teaching me a great version of Dirt Road Blues.

This is my first time posting a pic so we'll see if it works.

I can't keep up with you vintage freaks, it doesn't help being left-handed or living in the UK.
Ha - my first National was left-handed, and I had to convert it to righty!

All this is soon due to change as I am waiting any day now for the word from Mike Lewis at Fineresophonic (qv Jed) that my new german silver triplate is ready from the platers and I can drive to Paris to collect it.

So, did you get to the mainland yet?  It certainly looks like Finereso is holding their own on that side of the puddle.  I've always wondered - is Mike Lewis the person who made a teeny-weenie Style O for his son about 10 years ago?  I seem to remember that the builder was French.
ok then:  http://jed.net

Hello,

Seems a good thread to open my account with.

I play a Collings OM2H. It's pretty much all I need so I'm in the process of selling my other guitar.

Having said that, I am on the look out for a 20s/30s parlor sized guitar just because I've always fancied owning one! A bit tricky to find in England, though.

Cheers,

The Major.
