WL-12 MH & JP Pure Nickle Wound Lights ++ Good

I'd be the first to complain, but let me give credit where it's due. I must have tried six different sets of strings in as many months. I'm not complaining...one has to 'get it 'right'. After going through many posts here I thought I'd give John Pearse strings a try. I never used JP before. Again, f...

Re: WL-12 Mahogony - Is action higher on 12 fret?

I may purchase another saddle if I really get bored. I have all the stew-mac tools to measure it, it just hasn't really been a problem. I've been enjoying finding my 'right' strings for it. (I'm really enjoying nickle strings on it for the time being.)

Re: Waterloo WL-AT

$4500!? You can buy a huge variety of vintage and even new quality archtops for that kinda green. Granted that these are not 'inexpensive' but Collings & Waterloo didn't get their reputation primarily by being inexpensive. If you have the money, I doubt that you'd be disappointed. It's always diffi...

Re: WL-12 Mahogony - Is action higher on 12 fret?

I'd only have it changed if I didn't love the sound. I was able to play it a at a few jams for four 45-minutes sets. I was just wondering in my head. Right now, I wouldn't risk changing anything. I've had the guitar a couple of months only and the guitar is still vibrating (from inside the case) a d...

WL-12 Mahogony - Is action higher on 12 fret?

I had a little 4 hour binge on my 12 fret Waterloo and realized that compared with my other brand, 14 fret guitars, the action seemed to be a bit higher. (I could actually measure it, but that would make things too easy.) Since the tension is less, in general, on a 12-fret guitar would the action be...

Re: Social Media or Here?

I have some pretty strong feelings about Social Media and the many different ways your personal information is sold. (This includes companies like banks, local government, school districts. I'm not only saying, "…if you're not the purchaser, you're the product". I worked for the largest private medi...
