|The Maurer, my grandfathers, was resuscitated, a bit different for the wear but still the best sounding acoustic I own. Paul (R) Smith swore it had a ghost in it! I love it so much I don't play it much anymore, which is absurd. But it's so fragile. So only for some recording. |
The 69 Martin still lives. I gave it to Hayley cuz she asked that when I died I'd will it to her, so I figured I must be part dead already and gave it to her. It's a great sounding, big throat guitar. I can still use it to record when needed.
All of my Qsticks are like battle worn war vets. But they are still fully capable of defending the country when put to test... if you get my drift.
Musicproinsurance is better than anything I could find here. And I have a studio, so homeowners doesn't really cover. They might SAY they do but when you go to them with a very large shopping list they look closer at their fine print and you're out. Had a friend who lost a $1M studio that way. Thought he was insured but wasn't really.
Canadian insurers are like the banks here, VERY cautious, not into rolling dice at all - like US insurance and banks. It's made the economy more stable, but it's harder for a master of shuck and jive to convince with a James Brown dance step and a yodel or two. In fact, Socan, the best deal here, is still a point or so higher than musicpro. That adds up fast when you try to insure a studio.
Musicpro, btw, might SAY they cover Canadian instruments but actually don't. I had them for a couple years, then did the research when they wouldn't send me an email (paper trail) confirming I was indeed covered here. They don't, but they were happy to take a thousand or two of my bucks per year while I figured it out.
Jettas rule. Like a luxury car but without the cost.
Anyone ever play a Grosh Electrojet? It's my new object of lust.
