My fantasy is to play ONE intrument reasonably well.

Of course that doesn't mean I'd say no to a grand piano, A good fiddle, a hurdy gurdy or a possum ocarina.

Bert.

1) The new baby Larrivee (they call it their Parlor Guitar)
2) The Santa Cruz Baritone Guitar
A turn of the century Fairbanks banjo
A repair job for my '69 Gibson Heritage

Brendy

That really was uncalled for! What people say here is way more important then how they spell. Have a little consideration. Not everyone is perfect as you seem to think you are. Guy, I apologize for that inappropriate comment. Wonder what Brendy would say if he could see what you can do with your hands in the way of pottery. We're glad to have you here on the 'cat. You make valuable contributions.

Embo, I thought you already had a hairy tiple. By the way, if you want one made, do you have to find your own armadillo to scrape up off the highway for the raw materials?

My fantasy instruments,

1. A voice like Bing Crosby's or Glenn Curtin's

2. My fingers, working like they did in 1983.

3. My 1960 F-30 Guild with a new roof on it.

4. A Vega Whyte Lady banjo

Anything else I can build.

Generally, I'm pretty satisfied with the instruments I have: I don't think I've played a banjo I like more than my Wildwood Minstrel (Vega style TuBaPhone, open back) but I wouldn't turn down the gold plated Gibson Mastertone that Ralph Stanley auctioned after his concert in Berkeley six or seven years ago--and it sold for only $3100. I love my Baby Taylor guitar, no matter what Fielding says about the little Larivée, but I wouldn't turn down the big Larivée that one of the members of the Once-Born plays. I could go for a Martin accoustic bass guitar, and maybe a nice Dobro. I often look longingly at Weber mandolins, but I have enough to do learning to play the instruments I have without complicating things too much.

Of course, a MIDI translator that could work with accoustic instruments would be fantastic. But my real dream instruments are Doc Watson's hands and his kinesthetic memory. I'll leave the guitar to you, Mick.

Great Nightowl! Tell Santa taht now that you've given up that Orthey Autoharp I'll take it. I hope its the 48 string one with the extra bass strings! Also I play chromatic, no diatonics please.

Oh! I might also (if you please Santa)I would love a long neck Pete Seeger model Vega open back banjo (with a tone ring).

I promise I'll be good all year (or at least until christmas).

I've got a Morris 9 string from 1947: It certainly doesn't tune itself.
The thing I find with all these instruments, is that the instrument itself can sometimes take over; It has it's own ego, mar a dhá. Don't let your instrument take over you. You are able for it! Om Om Om.

My fantasies never stop, but drift w/time... Guild 12-string; 1 or more add'l Martins +/or Taylors; a mandolin that makes me sound good... a Larivee or 2.... My old Harmony Soveriegn - which I left in India, w/the highly effective double-ended truss rod I designed & installed... gave it a dead straight neck & it had a sweet balanced tone... amazing for one of those...

Cheers, bk

Brian Boru's harp? You really ARE in fantasy land, Mr. Mick.
Continuing on McGrath's train of thought, I want a self-tuning twelve-string.

My maternal grandfather was a guy callled James McKeever. Fiddle player extrodinaire.... in the 1890's He brought Boston back to Ireland at.br> Now, he died in 1942: I never knew the man. But he left his violin to his eldest daughter, my mother. And I still have it. I play it, although I'm not a fiddle player, but this machine was made, wait for it.... in 1720. Russian violin maker (probably obscure) called Isconjatsov. (That's what's written on the inside). But 1720 it is.

Love to all

I don't play anything except fiddle well enough to want a fancy instrument. I have my fantasy fiddle - one made by A.J.Marlen, who lived less that 15 miles from where I live now - in 1907. It was the 45th violin he made, and it's a beaut. I wish I could play it as well as it deserves.

Sorry about the lasy Post!
I have my fantasy instruments; I have spent the past 30 years collecting them.
And d'ye know somethin', They're all Guilds. One Guitar I insisted on having was the "Sir Toby" Fylde Acoustic Bass.
My main Six string is a limited edition Washburn, which I got customised, and because I use heavy strings, for the most part, I tend to drift towards the likes of Washburns, Guilds, Gibsons, and the likes. But I think it would be unfair to the guitar to describe it as a make. Every guitar is an individual, and should be treated as such.
Makes don't matter to me, the sound does.
