GUEST,harvey andrews Info wanted about Laskin guitars (23) RE: Info wanted about Laskin guitars 11 Nov 05

"The only one I saw so far was a nice enough guitar but you could drive a trolley bus through the action by about the 5th fret. Obviously just needed a set up. the neck was nice - also it seemed heavy - but perhaps I was wrong."

Now look here Weelittle, you sure were! As you were interested, I let you handle my Laskin....a very rare priviledge I allow to few people,and this is the thanks I get? Now you apologise to the lady right now, or else I'm a'comin' to getcha!!!! She suits me just fine!
Seriously, I have had the guitar set up by one of Britain's leading guitar makers who himself had never seen a Laskin before, but knew of them.
When he gave it back to me he said "It's like a cathedral in there". Via the net I understand he and Grit are now in communication.
I shall now go and take her out of her case and play, particularly above the 5th fret.
