    without wishing to derail, would love to see it, i have a 31 maybell parlour archtop, just a thing of beauty, but tough to play

    My drums are Yamaha, and their sound has definitely 'worn in'. They were very musical at first, lots of overtones, they've become more flat-sounding over time, which I think is a good thing.

    Here it is. There's quite a lot of binding missing which doesn't show that well here & also several cracks in both top and back as well as the gouges but the top has taken on a lovely aged patina. Also has an old style V shaped neck. It has to be teased into tune but once there, it holds it quite well.

    the maybell ... huge neck like a baseball bat, tiny body with 12" lower bout ... had a extrawide jazzmaster pickup overwound and surface mounted without drilling the top ... bit of a devil to play, strings are a tad heavy, but the acoustic voice is really rich and deep, plus sounds like the end of the world through my selmer rig WP_20170710_21_34_57_Pro.jpg

    Could it be other locals, stripping the 'usable' parts to mend and rebuild their own dwellings? Like the stones from medieval castles and abbeys were taken to buld new houses, thus hastening the decline into ruin.

    i love seeing old instruments played, always commands my attention and respect ... i wandered through the milf the other day (manchester international festival) and there was a young girl onstage playing either a hofner senator or congress, wasnt close enough, but i instantly stopped and checked her out ...

    its either a collocation or idiom widely used all over manchester to refer to the festival ...
