    Yep it was Moloney’s .

    We have several great friends who are “marquee” musicians in Ireland. Joe Flynn and Frankie McDonald and Frankie’s Daughter Lorainne and Son Keith.

    We have known them for years and they open up their homes and hearts when we visited “The Olde Sod”.

    We do the same when they come to Florida.                                                                                                                            They set up several gigs for my wife Dee with Midlands Radio and allowed Her to guest appear with them.

    Me, they gave me an old guitar , a shot of Dullimore Dew and a pint of the black stuff and set me in the corner at Sean’s Bar and at Mick Kaleen’s on the river.

    Remember also that your choice of strings greatly affect the voice of an instrument.

    Do you play in DADGAD ? Hog is a great wood for that Celtic sound.

    Danny,

    Does the store have a tryout/return policy ?

    And always remember The Santa Cruz Sound is very personal. We who haunt this Forum are very subjective in our tonal evaluations and trying to describe all the aspects of a particular model , built from a particular tone wood , with a particular top wood is just “Chasing the wind”.

    I remember visiting a guitar store in Galway and in Athlone. Also a shop in Dublin, although  that shop was right after a visit to the Guiness factory……

    Welcome Dannymeeg and Slainte Mhath.

    I was torn between buying an FTC and a Don Edwards. I bought the FTC and I’ll never look back. But…..The Don Edwards is (IMHO) the PERFECT guitar for a singer/songwriter.

    Santa Cruz Guitar Company Presents: Don Edwards at the 40th Anniverary Celebration – YouTube.

    He was the “HIT” of the show (again IMHO ).

    I’m In….. I would really love to see the “real” forum members in their “Natural Habitat” ….sort of  David Attenbourgh” ……”And now if you are very quiet you can hear the Santa Cruz guitar buyer explaining to his mate why he needs an OM to go with his F and why it will enhance the Families survival “…LOLLOLLOL

    Bert,

    Yep, I pay attention to All the Hurrligirls ( Screw PC, Hurricanes will always be ladies to me) and Delta lady was a wet one.

    My problem is that we are the Lightning Capital of North America and I would guess we have 500 strikes a season in our neighborhood…it simply takes its toll over the years.

    It’s life in the Southeast.

    At least I don’t have to find an address on “Peachtree” Ave, St, Pkwy , lane or Circle.

    Paul,

    Thanks so much for your thoughts.

    Florida Hurricane codes are real strict about re-pipes. I’ll follow the requirements and live with them . I think our state has learned from many years of history and I have lived here for over 1/2 my life.  We now will run PEX with copper connections through the attic and down the walls . ALL New valves , and ALL new connections to appliances.

    About 10 Grand….but I do receive a discount on my Homeowners Ins. for the next 10 years.

    I do have to say that their is a lot of common sense in this state… only because their was so much fraud here years ago.

    AND…. the Governor is a guitar player…. a Taylor… but still a picker.

    I love Det cord , but a bit of over kill. I’ve elected to go for the re-pipe. I had to laugh when he told me there was a 25 year  guarantee on parts….. I’m 74.

    No Tad, the Ramuda is paid for and I came too close to breaking the Karmic structure with the F travels.

    My Gas is complete with the addition of the FTC…… I am a HAPPY  Guitar playing old fart.
