Re: posture and seating

Thanks for the responses! I have been sitting with my legs crossed and am going have to unlearn that I think. I have moved to a an armless wooden chair and have been thinking about tension a lot. Just working on being as tension free as possible has dramatically improved my playing! Does anyone use ...

posture and seating

All, I am wondering what folks sit on while they are practicing (couch? Special chair?) and flatpickers in particular. Are there things about your posture or position that you focus on? I am practicing more due to Covid and am feeling some forearm soreness/tightness and am trying to improve my pract...

Re: Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

Thank for the thoughts you guys. I keep coming across "ladder braced" in a lot of my searches. I guess the old Nick Lucas guitars were ladder braced as well? I am wondering if a WL-14L might be a good fit with its bigger box dimensions and ladder bracing.

Re: Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

Thanks Cameleye! Do you play chords, chord melody, leads, etc? How do chords feel up around the 9th-12th fret? Do you miss the few extra frets? I have never owned a 12 fret but have been curious.

Thanks!

Waterloo for 20's and 30's swing

Hey all,

Could anyone recommend a Waterloo model for 1920's and 1930's jazz (including manouche styles). I remember hearing that Mark Althans was using a Waterloo for some gypsy jazz stuff. Also, do folks have opinions on the normal versus thinner neck options?

Thanks!

Re: OM1ASB Adi Braces FS/FT

Hey all,

I am dropping the price on this to 3300 plus shipping. Let me know if you want more pictures, info, etc. I should ad that I do now have a T-series OM so I am not really interested in trades except for Collings electrics.

Thanks!

Re: OM1ASB Adi Braces FS/FT price reduced

Hey all, I would like to offer this up for $3500. Let me know if you have any questions. It really is an amazing guitar especially if you need projection in a small body. I used it in bluegrass jams and it really cuts through (leans toward the Selmer tone IMHO). But I have also used it in small inti...

2018 OM1T FS

Hey all, We are trying to pay off some bills, get a new car, etc. so I am having to let one go. I bought this from TME a few months ago and it is super wide open - much more than a typical Collings OM. The sitka is beautifully silked all over and I can't find a single mark on it other than a few fin...
