Topic: Another Newbie here (9 msgs / 482 lines)
1) From: Dan Mouer
Hi folks,
My Heaven this is a talkative bunch  :-} Y'all must have caffeine coursing 
through your veins!
I'm Dan. Age 61. Richmond, VA. I discivered the joys of "good" coffee late 
in my teen years. I refined those tastes living in San Francisco's North 
Beach for a while, haunting the cafes there. I have books on coffee on my 
shelf that go back to the early 70s, I think. However, I have never taken up 
roasting.
So, I make my own wine. I sometimes make cheese. I bake bread. I cook all my 
own meals, for the most part. What in the world is wrong with me that I 
asked my wife for a Hawaiian Guitar instead of a coffee roaster for 
Christmas???
Just made my first order with Sweet Marias. I'll do a little oven roasting. 
Maybe scour the thrift shops for a popcorn roaster, and I'll undoubtedly buy 
a decent roaster as soon as I decide which one I want and how much I'm 
willing to spend. The latter will mean waiting to see what the 
post-Christmas bills look like, of course. Now if I can figure out how to 
roast in my Hawaiian guitar...
Dan

Nothing wrong with that--I opted for a Taylor GS over a Hottop.

Nice axe, Sandy. My regular machine is a Martin HD 28. My Christmas =

Fender amp to help it whine.

Some day I will learn to play lap steel/slide--when that happens,  
I'll be on the lookout for a Chandler or a Weissenborn.  My main  
gigging axes beside the GS are a Taylor 414rce and a Martin D-18GE.   
The GS (which is rosewood and spruce) is getting a K&K Pure Western  
Mini pickup installed in it as we speak.   I tend to fly to non- 
mission-critical gigs with a Martin D-15RS, with Baggs M1 pickup-- 
recently got an inexpensive flight case for it (had a Pegasus molded  
for the 414rce and 814ce).  When I fly but will not be playing out, I  
carry a Larrivee Parlour in a gig bag, which I can carry aboard all  
planes except the little puddle-jumpers. I also have a couple of 12- 
strings (Taylor 450, Martin D-12-20--which I am taking care of for my  
sister till she decides she wants to start playing again) and a  
Martin M-36--that one never leaves the house overnight because they  
aren't making it any more.  The guitar of my dreams would be a Martin  
JDP--Jumbo, Diane Ponzio Ltd. Ed., dreadnought depth, narrow waist  
for comfort and inside-chord definition, forward-shifted scalloped  
braces; first thing I'd do would be to get rid of that black Micarta  
nut and saddle and plastic bridge pins and replace them with bone or  
fossil walrus ivory nut & saddle and at least ebony pins, and the  
second would be to drop a K&K in there (that's also what I have in my  
D-18GE).  Also have a few dulcimers (I gig with a Blue Lion I W and  
II W).

Actually happened to TWO friends of mine, one in Chicago and one in  
Minneapolis--only the latter found his in an alley!  (Both spent over  
$1000 in repairs, still a bargain).

I started with a thrift store popper about 6 years
ago. I've moved way beyond that now -- I have about 8
thrift store poppers. If you eventually decide you
want a purpose-built roaster, well and good. But many
long-time homeroasters do fine without one. 
Welcome to the list.
