Ahhh yes Mike, but how many nurds like us spend all our time fixing actions? Not many I suspect.

Well yes Spaw and WAS actually. Although I remember the six significant (sort of) marriages I had BH (before Heather) with fondness (I'm still friends with those tolerant ladies), the main "relationship-guitar" is instantly recallable.

Dorothy (Mother)...Kay Archtop, cheap Stella 12 string. Goya G-17 (traded)

Angie...1944 D-18 (like an idiot..sold it)

Alison...1961 Epiphone Texan (sold to former friend for rent money)

Sandy...Guild F 212 (stolen) D-28 (new...ughh, sold it gladly)

Nancy...Larrivee custom (sold to prominent feminist singer)

Pam...1946 00-18, Japanese assembled Lowden (still the best sounding axe I've ever owned) sold to Mudcatter Willy-o.

Diane...Lowden (see above)

Heather....Lowden (see above), then guitar turmoil! maybe it'll be my 1949 0-18. Maybe my 1984 HB D-35, maybe NOT! (I'm sure keepin' Heather though!)

A thought just occurred to me. Most folks here are friends. If a newcomer sees this they really WILL think I'm nuts! For the record, guitars (and other instruments) are my ONLY vices!
