Salut et bienvenue du Nord d'Ontario!
Cette site(?) est fabuleuse et les participants sont polis

J’espère une année bientôt de me rendre a Montréal pour le Festival Jazz.
Ça doit être très excitant d’être en ce milieu jazz, j’en suis jalouse.

Mon Oncle Ronald m’invite souvent a venir a la ville pour une visite.
Pendant votre festival sera parfait,oui?

Hé hé hé, jouez a chaque journée!

Congrats, your french is great!!! Thanks for that Very Happy

You should really come up, especially this year during the Montreal Guitar Show held at the same time as the Jazz Fest. Great players will be giving concerts as well as free workshops...

Lots of fun!

This is an old pic of my collection... Some are gone and some new one since then...

But this is why I'm called Guitarjunky Smile

I also started a collection of luthier jazz guitars... I call it the Red Guitar Collection as they will all be red...

I have one coming by Mario Beauregard, one by Michael Greenfield, one by Michael Lewis and another one (in 3 years!) by Tom Ribbecke...

If so you have a lot of interesting stuff, but that tweed twin wow.

Some are mine, some are friends. I also sell some new stuff (just started this small business with my wife...).

I need to learn more about jazz guitar... That is why I arrived here... I decided to start working some jazz chops!

Hello Guitar Junky and welcome.
I am a relatively new member myself and fellow Canuck eh.
I love your guitar collection and I am intrigued by the Luthier Guitar show this summer!!
Might be a road trip if I can get leave from the family. Wink
Here is my latest purchase.

I have all my guitars built by a fella named Don Carter at Midtown Music in Sarnia ON where I live.
He is a very good friend of mine and a fine craftsman.
He also built my main Archtop.
Thought that might interest you.
Later

Very nice guitar!

Is your luthier a pro luthier? does he has a web site?

Hey, Guitar Junky,

Nice collection. Honest to goodness, though, I thought I was looking at _my_ guitars. Our taste in guitars--right down to colors and apparent years--is about the same (Gretsches, Fenders, Gibsons...down to the particular models). Like you, I've changed some of the pieces, but I'd say we both are pretty deep into GAS.

Enjoy them all! (The 6120 Nashville on the back right would get a Cal Collins seal of approval for jazz, by the way.)
