National go bye bye

Well, after years of great service, it's time for some major work to be done on my Delphi - the neck heel has a crack that was repaired a few years ago, it's opening up and that's moving the action. The guitar also has SERIOUS fretwear - when you consider how much Slide I play, this guitar has seen a LOT of hours of play.

I'm shipping it to the factory for (I'm assuming) a new neck tomorrow. And then the pain of waiting! Good thing I have an El Trovador to keep me company!

The shovel is home and sounding great!

Good to have my old pal back.

Funny how different the 2 Nationals sound side by side.

Hey Dan, that's sounds a bit like emotional attachment to something that's just a "tool".

You're right, it does.

Consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. Do as I say, not as I do. Finish your peas.

I can see why the Shovel would be attached to Dan, but you shouldn't call him a "tool."
