"I've always craved a walnut 335 but I would buy old,"

Ah, Fyldeplayer, a couple of years ago I sold a 1974 walnut 325 that I had inherited. With the money I bought a Brazilian Rosewood Avalon which, I was told, was one of the last Brazilian Rosewood instruments they would be making as there was no more wood available.

I know a maker of folk and classical guitars who once showed me his collection of old Brazilian Rosewood that he had gathered from recycled sources over the years. He said, "That's my pension."
