Very happy to learn of this new forum, don’t know who to thank for this.. but many thanks.
In the late 70s I was living in Santa Cruz and ran across our beloved Mr. Hoover who tweak my D-18. Working for HP I moved around the country but never forgot my great time in SCruz. Time flew by and I happened upon a SCGC Tony Rice guitar in ~2000… became my go-to guitar for the next 6yrs. Later had a VS for a while, then settled in with a 2001 VJ.
The VJ is my if “I only had one” guitar, for various color I also own a 2008 Collings CJ and 2013 Bourgeois 00.
