Thread Name: Your most prized guitar
Subject: RE: Your most prized guitar
Thanks Phil...great to hear about Jan still being active. His guitars didn't/don't have the hipper-than-thou factor of some of the other independent builders like Gurian or Galagher, but I've yet to hear one that sounded as good as the one he built for me. It was LOUD and pretty sounding, too. I had to part with it for financial reasons. The only other guitar I ever heard approaching that particular one was a '33 Martin D-18S I played once. Jim Craig is one of the best interpreters of traditional music I've ever heard, a great songwriter and one of the true gentlemen in music.
