    Ah Bert….a leap of faith at our age is NEVER too late……..I use SCGC lites on the  FTC, OM and O.T.

    Chris (digdog) put Elixer Nano custom lites on the F while it was on a visit to California and I really like the “Jazz” vibe they give to the guitar…. I’ve since bought another set of those string  for a restring…..Horses for courses.

    I use SCGC Mids on the 1934 D and the HD-28.

    I’m using Spectrum 12 string sets for the Taylor….like them but really waiting for the SCGC 12 string sets to be released.

    I have been playing the O.T. in drop D and DADGAD lately……it really sounds great with the lites and the strings are not TOO  “Soft”….. but again waiting for the SC DADGAD sets.

    Best to you….If Y’all ever get to The Gulf Coast of Florida come and pick a bit.

    I learned how to play a 5 string banjo before I decided to play a guitar…..  Mel Bay ,The Pete Seeger book and “Sing Out Magazine” were the only lessons I ever had .

    To watch this podcast has been a true joy.

    To listen to Happy reel off the names of all the Players and artists is like running through my pre teen and teenage mind when I was learning what a guitar meant to me.

    With out a doubt this will be one of the Crown Jewels of your Podcast series.

    Also Richard and Tad ….I am envious and jealous ……but in a good way ,of your association and closeness with the SCGC folks……This was a wonderful and inspiring show Y’all.

    By the way …in the middle of it I grabbed my H-13 O.T. and was lightly picking it while I watched.

    REALLY ,REALLY Good Y’all

    Weird1963…. you may be correct about mine being the 4th OM.

    Also I went to the Dream Guitars Website and I think I heard the presenter of the VA 746 say that it is the 2nd in the series…..wonderful sounding instrument.

    I have a Martin Custom HD-28 built in 1993 and was a gift from my wife.

    28 years of playing and ageing has it sounding much like the VA.

    I’m now a bit confused.

    The listing for 000-7816 says it is the first guitar of 10 that will be built from “special quilted Hog”.

    Is that 10 VAs ? as a limited edition or 10 guitars total ?

    When I bought my 2015 OM made from “The Tree”/Euro, I was told it was only the 4th guitar from “The Tree” that Santa Cruz had built. It was signed by Richard and the Serial # is 5010.

     

    It  (5010)was confirmed by the seller to be as described and confirmed by SCGC .

    I adore the OM and its’ sound is very,very special and I would not sell it….. but now I’m curious ……any input from you SCGC historians ?

    23 years between the Advertisement and the building of  “only ” the 4th guitar built using that wood seems out of kilter……or am I missing something.

    Once Y’all Got through with that Foreign Talk’en bout that there Electrical mumbo jumbo ….

    Just kidding ….really enjoyed James. His love for his music and his playing and most of all Richard Hoover and the guitars he builds really shines through.

    I love his comment about getting beyond “Thinking” while playing……..Hell, I thought there was something wrong with me when I went all S.O.C. while playing on my guitars.

    Great job Richard & Tad….Thank You .

    This seems to fit with this thread…. Maybe John mentions this collection in his book.

    I was not as smart as Derek’s wife…. I was not able to purchase a Collectors copy of John’s book.

    But the Copy I received is just wonderful.

    Derek is correct ….It is very well written and the extensive history revealed shows how much research John did into the instrument we all enjoy.

    John’s comments about G.A.S and we collector/players is right on….he is one of us after all.

    I’m a little over 100 pages into it and Maestro Hoover and Johns first interaction is on page 78 …. John’s obvious love for Santa Cruz Guitars is well described.

    The physical book is of the quality of our SC instruments, really just a superb “feel” to it.

    IT IS NOT a bed time read… This is a “Solid” Tome.

    Thanks John……I’m going to keep the book in my American Music Furniture Display cabinet along with my guitars….. It deserves the same treatment as the Ramuda.
