1 tubwompus 3 weeks ago Ok, so at the last Nyshe-vull Roundup, the lovely and talented Joe C. brought a 000 acoustic from the Roots Collection. I’d been on an ongoing hunt for a cowboy box that would sound like I want “on tape” right in the room and dammit if that wasn’t it. So I order one (or so I thought) from Sweetwater right there. Turns out I didn’t pay close enough attention and it wasn’t until it showed up that I realized I’d ordered a style O parlor dealio. [insert drummer joke here] Durn-near a uke with a thyroid problem. (I did get a 000 later from Rocky at Street Sounds. What a great little guitar.) BUT!!!!.......It dawned on me yesterday that lo’ those many moons ago when I was working in the studios on the aforementioned Third Coast, a few studio guitar guys were using old Martin parlors with Nashville tuning for cutting a-cue-stick tracks.Grabbed an acoustic 12-string set of strings, ditched the bigger 6, strung up her diminutive self, and EXCELSIOR!!!!!!I love it when I’m not as dumb as I am.That is all.
