Re: Specs for VE2000GG DLX

You are more than welcome.Enjoy your guitar.I suggest if you haven't done so already,get it set up to your playing style.I favour a VERY LOW action and Martin SP 11-52 sets phosphor bronze strings.

Be well.

Re: Specs for VE2000GG DLX

Hi Phil. OK,I have spoken with Tom at JHS,and he has asked me to tell you to give him a ring and see if we can resolve this issue.Obviously it is as far as you have explained a cosmetic issue and not a structural one, but be that as it may if you aren't happy then I'm sure they can exchange it for y...

Re: Specs for VE2000GG DLX

Hi Phil. As far as I'm aware the specs for the deluxe should be as it has always been,ebony fingerboard,rosewood back laminate sides etc.I have no knowledge of a downgrading of material. The deluxe in my opinion has always been an outstanding guitar in terms of material used and construction.I use m...

Re: Vintage Viator Strings

Hi Vic.I tune my Viator above concert pitch in a C tuning. Certainly a heavy gauge set will work well in concert pitch. A really light gauge set will open even more possibilities for tune well above concert. Hope this helps buddy. G

Re: Nylon strung guitars

Hi Pete.

Check out the Roger Williams crossover classical on the JHS website,a stunning guitar.I used mine for the launch of the vinyl LAST OF ENGLAND album, and there is a clip on YOUTUBE I believe of the night.

Re: Wyres Strings

Hello chaps for what it's worth.I no longer endorse WYRES,mainly because I was experiencing string breakage on the first and second strings. Newtone strings are fantastic and it is a little known fact that I had a huge input on their original design.They are great strings BUT the low tension ones ar...
