Meh - to keep within my parameters compromise was needed. Given the nex weighs about 400 trams and can easily fit into my bags, or be strapped it makes the most sense for me.

Friends have lashed out on my recommendations.

They aren't cameras though. Well last I checked.

Not saying their goods are sub-standard, if you have no problems you'll have , er, no problems. But they grey import and offer their own 'warranty' for many items, hence the low prices. And good luck getting them to do anything about it if things do go wrong. They're cheap for a reason.

That's 12,000 tonnes! You must be a lot stronger than you look!

Yahama makes the best sounding beginner guitars (to my ears). Chech out the Acoustic Centre in South Melbourne, they'll steer you right.

I would recommend looking at Tanglewood as an alternative to Yamaha. I've been learning on a TW55 for years now and I'm pretty happy with it. There's no right or wrong and both make very decent beginner guitars.
Whatever you get, make sure it has a solid top (not laminated). Much nicer/richer/whatever sound.

I have a few dubmonks and I like the buckles more on the side.

The other thing for dubmonks is that you have to learn not to if you are a leg crosser as the buckles can badly scrape the cover flap on the vamp.

Fine and seeing friend only lives two blocks away we walk.

Conway Twitty The Flatlanders Miles Davis, Sticky Fingers imported copy with zipper, on Vinyl blah blah blah drink drink drink.

Stagger home with Mrs GF cross over into our street and there in the middle of the road is a brand new pair of Caterpillar steel cap work boots, pick them up yes they would fit son. Gives whole new meaning to falling off the back of a truck.

I hadn't really thought of Florsheim as being that good but what do peeps here think? It says made in Italy but not much else.


The Indian Imperials are Goodyeared maybe the Italian are Blaked. It is a nice looking shoe but this type of shoe sells on PaulFrederick.com for like USD250. Interesting that Florsheim has finally decided to get back to making higher end shoes.

I like the cognac colour of that shoe, not sure I could part with $300 for a pair of florsheim though.

Osiris2012, that is exactly what my friend said, the brand name got quite a bad connotation.

These ones are about 45° between the top and the side. Not a leg crosser unless I'm busting for the loo so luckily scratching the vamp hasn't been an issue for me.

I found an old photo from when the shoes were new, and thought it might be interesting to compare how they have aged after several years of wear:






Personally, like a good face I think shoes look better with a bit of character.

I've only bought recording equipment from Carlton Music Swap Shop but I would trust the guys at The Acoustic Centre when it comes to acoustic guitars. They can also do a set up for you and get the thing as playable as possible, It's a nice place to just go and hang out.
