    This is my 2016 R9. It’s a great sounding guitar.

    That flame top is gorgeous.  If I were to get another LP that would be the exact finish I would want.

    Thanks. It was looking particularly flamey the other day with the sun shining in. I have a couple of other guitars too but I love the R9 too much to play them.

    New pick up.. might turn it into a McCready strat

  • bootlegger10bootlegger10 Posts: 14,859
    Sweet!  Got those Texas Special pickups.  

    A more affordable McCready strat is on the way so you might keep an eye out for that before doing anything to this one.

    Any updates on how you are liking the guitar?  What are your thoughts on the pickups?
  • pjpjpaulpjpjpaul Posts: 1,563


    Other than the fretboard being a little dry, this thing arrived in great condition and if the tones and playability keep up with what I experienced today then I can confidently state that it punches well above its weight class.

    That's awesome.  You don't need to spend a lot to get a lot.

    Its not bad. I prefer my fender strats though. 

    I like that Cantrell up there.. debated on getting one.

    Thinking about getting a Baby Taylor. I know a few folks here own one. To those folks, any input/advice?

    I'm going to try to make it to a music shop soon and play one against the Yamaha FG-Junior guitar my son has. If the difference isn't too noticeable, I might just buy another Yamaha for myself.

      I had one-it has a very bright sound. It also 
    has instructions concerning humidification of it, and the Taylor softshell backpack padded case, was nice with it.  It is the full mahogany model- looks great, sounds great..
     I say I "had" it because one of the kids has it for the summer, to jam with friends. 
       Check them out & play em, & see what you think.  At the time it was new, it was $400+ that was circa 2004.

    I had a Baby Taylor back in the day.  I agree that it was bright sounding.  I upgraded to the Taylor GS Mini and it is much more balanced sounding while still being a great small guitar for around the house.  I would get a used GS Mini over a new Baby without thinking twice if price was equal.  My feeling was that the Baby was more of a novelty guitar.   The GS Mini is a legit quality guitar at a decent price.
  • NEweatherNEweather Posts: 398
      I think I agree kinda when you mention the Baby as kind of a novelty guitar. This one the back&front are slightly arched. There isn't a pick guard, but that's ok fingerstyle. I was in a situation where I was playing Dust In The Wind, on it- but TG my friend slid his full size Taylor to me, and I was able to continue& finish, cuz found it awkward for me on the Baby. I'll have to get a look at the GS mini sometime. 
  • NEweatherNEweather Posts: 398
       My Epi Caballero I started out with, as a kid is the smallest guitar- the parlor size- that's probably as small as I can go- cuz I'm sorta tall with long arms/ hands/ & fingers- 
  • dankinddankind I am not your foot. Posts: 20,826
    Thanks, folks. I’m going to try out a few different smaller ones. I play my son’s FG-Junior (also very bright) a lot. Probably more than my Martin and other full-sized acoustics. And definitely more than the electrics. It’s just such an easy one to grab. Yeah, it’s a little tight for some chord shapes and fingerpicking patterns, but it’s portability more than makes up for that to me.

  • Jason PJason P Posts: 19,014
    to clarify, i wasn't using the word "novelty" in a negative way in my comments above to describe the baby taylor.  It's good for travel or if you want to take outside and not worry about dinging up.  It's just not something you would record or choose over something else to play to a limited audience.

    And depending on your son's age, it may be perfect.  I'm looking at OOO Martins and grand orchestra Taylors (mainly just looking) because I realized I'm playing my GS Mini way more than any of my dreads because the size is just right. 

    FYI - If you are planning on buying a nice Taylor, they have a deal for $100 baby or $200 GS mini (if you pay $$$ for nice taylor that is ;) )...
  • NEweatherNEweather Posts: 398
     definitely not being negative- baby taylors are nice little guitars and can be just the right instrument for many reasons. & a joy in discovering

    I got this last week. Been looking for one for years. It's an ESP Vintage Four. Made in Japan, relic'd and spec'd with excellent pickups and hardware. 

    If hope can grow from dirt like me, it can be done. - EV

    Sweet, @dudeman

    I want to get a real bass at some point. The rinky-dink Squier Bronco I have is fun, but when I see a guitar like yours pictured above, it gives me aspirations. 

    At some point (read: when I when the lottery), I'd like to try out a StingRay.

    Just finished up this EV inspired tele. Sparkle finish, p90 in the neck and a rosewood (in this case pau ferro) fretboard. The middle position sounds great, but he p90 really over powers the bridge so I need to tweak the balance. Hopefully I can keep the stock bridge pickup without having to swap it for something with a bit higher output.



    And with my RW tele

    ^^^Looks pretty sweet!

    I finally got a smaller acoustic. Went with the Taylor GS Mini-e Koa.

    Awesome! Been looking for a smaller acoustic myself lately. I'd like to get an acoustic/electric, preferably. It's been awhile since I went to the music store just messed around. I think that changes this weekend. I also want a drum kit....and another electric...and...

    It never ends.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    I got a custom wiring harness for mine from MojoTone.  It has 500k pots and a 250k resistor so the P90 gets Gibson values and the bridge gets fender values.  that and some pickup height tweaks has mine balanced perfect.
