Bravo! Hopkinson Smith has competition! I think you I see a franchise series here.
Hi Jenny: I have a black case, and the dings show white. I haven’t tried to improve the looks at all. And maybe they upgraded the flight case fabric since I purchased my unit.
I might add …. although it’s probably somewhere in one of the threads … I replaced the fasteners that came with the shoulder straps. I got some hardware from REI…[Read more]
I’ll jump in here because I have a Visesnut case. I have the high-end model. I have traveled with it on transcontinental and national flights — both as checked luggage and as carry on. It does get dinged up, but it holds up well. I purchased the flight case — and the flight case has taken the brunt of the travel abuse. It is is getting torn and…[Read more]

Applause! Sounds great!
Thank you, Mark and CPG828. I am still evaluating in an analysis-paralysis sort of way which support makes sense — or whether to just stick with the tried and true Oasis cushion. Sounds like the Lift is worth a try, however.
Hi CPG828: I was very interested to hear about your experience with GuitarLift, which you alerted me to. I watched the video, and I like the concept.

Very lovely pictures, Pat. Thanks for sharing. That will be an exciting moment when it arrives — and many many hours of playing enjoyment. (Right now I am still using a large Oasis pad for support — but I don’t think there are many players who do that. I have a Sageworks, but somehow I just can’t bring myself to stick those magnets in the…[Read more]
I enjoyed your journal update, Laurie — and what you have to say about performance and summer school will benefit folks in the CGC community, I think. It sounds like you are very busy with interesting and challenging activiites.
I always feel uplifted and inspired when I read one of your journal updates, Drew — but I can totally totally understand that you want to minimize the “management” mode. I’m with you. Your lyrical interludes are always appreciated by moi. Enjoy the month of August!

Fantastic and thorough update, Narayan. I love the reference to the glass nail file. You know the guru by the gear.
