Selling my NEW Tanglewood Union Series A-5 TMS AV Mandolin

Hi folksters I have a mandolin which has never made it out of the case. I am a guitarist and was bought this as a present but have never played it. It has sat in the case for a year or so and has been totally unused in that time. The plastic covering is still in place on the pick guard. So time for ...

Selling CDs - is it allowed?

Hi

I am selling some CDs, amongst which are a few folk CDs (mostly Bert Jansch). Is it possible to put these on this forum? No worries if not. And I won't be doing anything until I have an answer.

Kind regards

Max

How bad is the damage in these frets and the fretboard?

Hi all Another post about my recently acquired Yamaha LL11! I've finally got around to giving it the once over, cleaning it up, and putting some new strings on. With the strings removed, I thought now would be a good time to photo the frets and fretboard and see how bad the damage is. From the 7th f...

Re: Anyone know a good luthier/guitar tech in Norfolk area?

I was given the details for Andrew Guyton on the Norfolk/Suffolk border. He has apparently done some work (and built guitars) for some very famous guitarists. Thought I'd add that here for the benefit of anyone stumbling across this thread in the future. At the same time though, if anyone has ever h...

Re: Set up/refret for my guitar before or after I choose str

Thanks for the suggestion Gordon. I have emailed him.... I live in Norfolk, but I holiday in Wales. So if it turns out that he can do my kind of work needed (and if I can afford it!) I could discuss with him the idea of dropping it off in the summer and collecting it on the way back! That would also...

Set up/refret for my guitar before or after I choose strings

Hi all I recently bought a used Yamaha LL11. The lower frets are quite badly worn and the action is quite high too. So I would like to get a set up done on it, and I'm also thinking about a re-fret. I may possibly also look into getting a bone or tusk saddle (and pins?) fitted. Anyhow, the thing is ...

Re: What do people on the fourm think of Elixirs?

Thanks for all the info guys. I'm going to give these Newtone strings a go.... I've been using .011 - .052 so far, but it seems the Newtone do not do this gauge set. So it's either .011 - .050. Or .012 - .052. Is it quite common for string manufacturers to not offer a .011 - .052 set?

Re: A tab for The Mariner's Tale?

I didn't have too much bother with the song in the main. Not easy by any stretch, but soon get there. That's with the song as it is in the book and on the book's CD.... However, the song proper goes ballistic for a short section toward the end. I can only imagine that that is very tough. Without a t...

Re: A tab for The Mariner's Tale?

I think this might be one of the most addictive songs I've ever learnt! Since learning it a couple of days ago I just can't stop playing it.... It's so much fun to play, and so beautiful sounding. And I love the way it can be played so differently too; softly and gently, or loudly and brash. Great s...

What do people on the fourm think of Elixirs?

Hi all I've been reading about these strings a lot recently. I have a set of the 80/20s on my Seagull S6 folk. But to be honest I am mainly an electric guitarist who is mellowing more into acoustic with age! I have alwaus had a nylon string, but it is only quite recently I've got my steel strung aco...

Anyone know a good luthier/guitar tech in Norfolk area?

Hi all I recently bought a Yamaha LL11 and it is in need of a set up. Will most likely need a refret as well because the existing frets are quite badly worn and pitted in areas. I wondered if anyone knows of a decent tried and tested luthier / guitar tech in the area? Many thanks Max PS - feel free ...

Sociology teacher from Norwich City College (early nineties)

Hi all A strange post this! And apologies in advance if it is not appropriate for the forum.... When I was doing A-Levels at Norwich City College between 1993 and 1995, there was a sociology teacher there who from memory owned a Rob Armstrong acoustic (I'm not certain about that bit) and knew how to...
