Tom, The Taylor nylon model is the NS72-CE,rosewood back, cedar top made in 2002 with a fishman/taylor pickup and preamp. I'm sorry that I'll miss your songs on Sunday eve. My flight gets in too late. I hope you'll be performing on the other days as well. Best wishes, Rick

Oooohhhhh...a Collings. I think I'll bring a Taylor Doyle Dykes that you might be interested in trying out through the L1. Not an exceptional unplugged guitar but I think it has a great plugged in sound due to Doyle's design specifications (based on one of Chet Atkin's guitars I believe) and the L.R. Baggs system. How about if you let me touch yours, I'll let you touch mine?
"I'll be bringing a custom Collings C10 - the only guitar I have with a real flight case (a Calton)."
You guys are killin' me... I love to bring my toys with me so I get to hear them in the hands of folks who play better than I do... AND I get to see the kid-like gleam in the eyes of my friends when they start making music with new tech.... but I just don't want to check 300 lbs of stuff for air-travel. <sigh> I'd love to get you guys playing my Variax Acoustic with synth pick-up GR-20 and XT-Live or my Breedlove or even my little Switch electric.... but I think I'll just shove my HPD-15 in my luggage and borrow someone's guitar to sing a song or two if time allowes.
Oh and I SO want to try a T5 thru an L1 ...<drool>
Guys, I'd like to suggest that we start some kind of master songlist for the jam situations. It's nice if everyone knows a lot of the same tunes. We're far enough out that those that need to can brush up on chord changes, heads, etc.
Whadya think? (Do we need a separate thread on this?)

I also think the style of music is kind of a big factor in deciding whether to join in a jam or not. I can hold my own in a bluegrass jam and I play my share of rock/folk/pop/country but when it comes to jazz...I'm out. Like it enough and people like Django intrigue me and are fun to hear and watch but when they talk about charts I'm lost.
