Jay:

The owner wrote a long memo to me, saying that this guitar is in mint condition--no issues-- except the two small cracks (one at 6 and the other at 8 o'clock)

Glen Campbell 12-strings

Hi, everyone: I have several questions about the Glen Campbell 12-string models: a) Do they all come in "slotted" head stocks? b) If so, I hear that they a "pain" to re-string. Is that true? c) Do they all have only 12 frets? d) in terms of sound, how are they? Thanks, Karl

I stand corrected! I just went to a video of Glen playing the "Wichita Lineman" on the Good Time Hour. I guess it is one of his own signature models:

Differences between Korea & US Made?

Hi, everyone: I am interested in buying an Ovation Custom Legend 12-string (Natural color). Today, I played a number of Korean-made Ovations at a music store in CT that were nice sounding-- some for only $300-400!!! So, what do the experts here say? Are the New Hartford, CT (American) models really ...
