    Maybe you could look at your current collection and consider whether there are any you don't need, i.e. use regularly, to come up with a possible trade in against a cutlass.

    Yeah - I think that's the problem - new music is very hard to come across on the radio. I have seen a few great young acts live over the last few years but for whatever reason they were unable to get...

    I grew up in the 80's but I remember thinking 60's music was much better. Although I did get with Foo Fighters and G&R I am still more or less stuck in the 70's. Which maybe not coincidentally was...

    Thanks. I did notice a subtle difference between the maple and rosewood, in the hands of a more delicate strummer they may have been greater.

    Was music better in the 'old days'?

    Ok it's a very subjective question and I am not sure I know the answer.
