John,
I have a a 350/v63 that I JUST LOVE!
Please excuse this question if it's too intrusive, but I've just gotta' ask.
I've been mostly a fender tele-strat, gibson es335,
and rick player for many years, but mainly a tele guy. I can see from your posts you're a straight up guy, an avid guitar player, and an afficianado who really appreciates playing guitar... as well as keeping the great Rickenbacker legend alive and available to all of us grateful guitar pickers.
Well here's the question...
What other guitars (non-Rickenbacker) do you own in your personal collection and enjoy playing... that is, made by other companies (besides and other than Ricks), and which do you admire most?

Like the guy says at the end of the first scene in the first "dirty harry" movie "I just gots' ta' know"
Thanks for your kind consideration, and candor on this delicate question,
most reverently yours,
chip
ps besides janglin' my '99 350/v63's got great twang in the bridge position!!!

I have a nylon string acoustic that I've had for years and really enjoy. It's not an expensive custom European instrument but rather a lower cost guitar from Japan. But it was made at least 30 years ago, most likely by a small shop in Nagano prefecture, which has traditionally been a source for very high quality classical instruments such as violins.

It's not the very best classic guitar I've heard heard or played- that surely would be one from George Lowden- but for the price, it's really exquisite.

Here's what it sounds like (as played by Kenny Howes):

I concur. That's a nice little guitar.

I'd be interested in knowing all the rock stars (not counting Kenny) JH has met, Rick users or not.

Likely your player settings. Whatever one you're using, look for something like "Buffering" in the configuration or preferences. You'll want to set this to fully buffer the content or at least give it a long time to download before it starts playing.

I'm not a kiss and tell kind of guy so I feel a bit funny about this. Suffice it to say that I generally know or have dealt personally with most of the major artists that use and have used our products; it comes with the job. A few I know much better than others.

I was trying to think of people I don't know but I'm drawing a blank currently.

JH-
I figured it might be a touchy one, didn't mean to put you on the spot. Thanks.
