  • Another use for basswood...

    I am a frustrated guitar player...I started playing when I was in 5th grade, and ended up with a private teacher that couldn't teach at my level, we both got frustrated and I quit. Mom sold my guitar, and I have always yearned to learn to play.

    My lovely wife surprised me with a late Christmas present last weekend. A new Fender Concert size Acoustic/Electric guitar, with...wait for it...a BASSWOOD body! It is really a nice instrument, and I can't wait to start learning again.

    One of my bank customers gives lessons, and I am going to start next week. He says he can have me playing a song in a week! I figured that just because I am 57 years old, it is never too late to learn something if you really want to!

    Hi Tim
    If your new guitar sounds as nice as it looks you will be playing before you know it, I want your first CD

      Very nice Tbox. You already have a moustache so you should be able to carve a face to fill out the rest of the guitar. Then it will really be something.

      If I took the time to fix all my mistakes, I wouldn,t have time to make new ones.

          Excuse me! We are the same age and I am 57 years young. Now I am starting to learn how to carve.

            Heck, it looks like it is begging for some pyrography. Enjoy it!

                Go for it, tbox! I'm 77 and I love learning new things. You're never too old if you have the spirit...well, assuming arthritic joints cooperate.

                  That's funny! I never noticed it looked like a moustache!

                      If I'm not mistaken Tim, I think they call it a moustache bridge. Learn well, and have fun with it. Then you can play us all a little tune.
