Default Many thanks to all of you . . .

Many thanks to all of you for your postings to my “pawn shop disaster/broken truss rod” thread. I learned a lot from you about: 1) shopping for guitars in pawn shops; 2) dealing with luthiers; 3) truss rod problems and fixes.
Pawn shops: Not really the best place to look for good used instruments. If you find something that looks good, have it checked out by a luthier before you buy it.
Dealing with luthiers: If you take a guitar in for a setup, have him test the truss rod right there before you leave it with him. Also it never hurts to get a second opinion before you have the work done.
Truss rod issues: This is the best part. I now have a much better understanding of the options for addressing truss rod issues. Replacing the truss rod is not the only fix.
This forum is absolutely awesome. I just joined a few days ago, and I’m already learning all kinds of things from the fine people contributing to the forum.
By way of thanks, I want to share with you some excellent music by some of my favorite recent artists. If any of these artists are new to you, you’re in for a treat. The bluesmen among you will certainly enjoy this short playlist.
Thanks again everybody!
Robert

Awesome post! There are a lot of nice folks here with a lot of knowledge. I am glad I was able to assist you. I hope you continue to visit the forum and never be afraid to ask questions. There's no such thing as a dumb question. All the best and I'm looking froward to more of your posts.
