...also still alive

Postby murf » Tue Jun 05, 2018 10:16 am

Hey gang,
I used to be on here quite a bit in the early 2000's but kinda dropped off after my son was born in 2007. I also stopped playing in bands at that point and actually, quit playing guitar nearly at all.

I've just begun to pick up my old Tacoma acoustic and let me tell ya, the fingers are hurting!! lol
I also realized that the old Tacoma just doesn't suit me any longer so I've begun a slow process of seeing what's out there. When did Carvin drop the Cobalt line?

Anywho... glad to see some of the old gang still here.

Cheers, you bunch of hacks!! :lol:

Looks like I'm in the same boat...came on right after in 2008.

I've heard the same thing as 2+2=Chicken above. Even when production shifted from Korea to China, I don't[i]remember[i] hearing any quality complaints. Not that they didn't exist, I just don't remember any. I'm always on the lookout for a 12-string.
