    Can't wait to hear it, Jeff!

    As for flats on a Tele, I guess I could try it. Mine still has the .009s that came with it. Ordered some more strings for it but not flats . Hhmmmm.

    I learned that one from Frank Vignola's chanel at TrueFire---it wasn't a tune I knew.

    Has anyone done "Sweet Georgia Brown" yet?

    Welp, China Boy is a bit too fast for me...

    But that never stopped me before.

    Had a few beers out in the backyard, came in and did this. So much fun, I might even keep working on this tune.

    A favorite 8-bar blues. (Especially love the way Grant Green did it.) Since it's only 8 bars, I played through it twice.

    Ah thanks. Yes it's the Loar LH600 with TI bebops on it - just acoustic for this one.

    You know it's funny it was sitting in its case for ages, I was thinking of selling it, and I picked it up and thought 'this is a dull sounding, nondescript guitar, why did I ever dig it?'

    Then I played it for a bit, put new strings on it, thinking of getting it fixed up for a sale... Actually lowered the action and lightened the string gauge a little, and played it a bit more... using it more as a guitar with an acoustic voice rather than the sheer cannon I was playing it as before... and the guitar opened right up. Now it has that early L5ish warmth-with-strident-edge, and I love the sound of that Krivo pickup with it... Jason has made a magnetic pickup that is the most acoustic I've heard, using vibrations from the instrument as well as the strings.

    And it's great for solo guitar, because my Gibson ES175 is flipping terrible for that. It's an ensemble guitar. I can barely finger chords on that stupid little '60s neck (look at my big stupid, cloddish fingers...) So the Loar's getting a lot of love. The more it's played, the better it sounds.

    Sorry for that ramble haha.

    I had a Samick HF 650 for many years, which looks like the same thing as later MIK incarnations of the Aria Herb Ellis that people sometimes tout as a 175 clone (I never really thought it had the 175 sound, but that's another story). Anyway, it had that 60s-Gibson-based skinny neck/narrow nut. I didn't realize how much this factor came into play because I had never paid attention to neck dimensions. But it was always sort of "hmm, it's easy to play fast single note style on this, but why do I suck so badly at chord-melody?" I didn't really try to play that sort of thing on my Strat or my LP so comparing that dimension didn't dawn on me. Then I got my D'Angelico semi hollow, and I was all "wow, I can play a lot of stuff on this guitar." And at that point, I also tumbled onto the whole neck dimension discussion and figured it out. Sold the Samick, and didn't get another archtop for a few years until I picked up the Godin I have now (same nut width as my D'A and Fender, but chunkier neck than either). Bottom line, there are other fish in the sea, especially 175's its 1 11/16" nut widths.

    thank you

    Here is a 'blind take'. To be fair it is a second take as I did not catch the key at first.

    I do not like my playing -- I like only first lines - there was something interesting in it... all the rest seemed empty and non-expressive really..
    And too much similar type of pharsing \...

    But uploading somehow pushes me to go on...

    I like in that 'blind take' idea is that I really hav eto listen and I very clearly see where I just 'pass by' playing a pattern (or trying it ) and where I really 'sing' a line... I deliberately try to make it more 'song-like' rather than a jazz solo...

    Thanks for the nice words, especially coming from such a masterful player!

    It never went into production, sadly because it certainly is my dream guitar! I tried to find out the backstory to this guitar, it probably was made somewhere in asia, for the BR label. Probably either by eastman or yunzhi.
    But to be true, i couldn't care less. It sounds and plays fabulous, and I only paid about 700€ for it!
