A guitar cannot be judged simply by the species of top wood. The bracing and the top thicknesses are even bigger factors.
If you have a real pro around who can setup your guitar properly, do yourself a favour and pay for a proper setup. Then your guitar will play and sound its best. If you like the guitar, keep it!!
No matter what species of wood populates its various pieces. Haven't had the Yamaha with him yet though.Vintage Guitar Show and Swap Meet
Like I said I'm not really an acoustic player anyways, so I didn't invest alot of money in one. The Yamaha took my eye at the time and I'd heard some good stuff on them, along with the Bert Jansch association with the brand that was enough for me. It was an inexpensive guitar at the end of the day. My qualms aren't really about it's playability though if I'm honest.
So I don't really know if a good set up will solve my issues. I would like to hear of some Engelmann stummers and hear their music though. If nothing more than curiosity.
Last edited by LoughsidePlayer; at Of all the changes we've been through, surviving Ant leaving was the hardest. His last show with the band took place in Haywards Heath on 18 July They regarded his exit as the band's greatest threat and the most difficult to overcome.
Gabriel and Rutherford decided they would continue; Banks agreed on the condition that they find a new drummer that was of equal stature to the rest of the group. Mayhew was therefore fired, though Phillips later thought Mayhew's working-class background clashed with the rest of the band, which affected his confidence. Collins and Hackett join and Nursery Cryme[ edit ] The search for a new guitarist and drummer began with advertisements placed in copies of Melody Maker.
He recalled, "My only knowledge of Genesis was through seeing the ads for their gigs. It seemed like they were constantly working.
I thought 'At least I'm going to be working if I get the gig'. As they arrived early, Collins took a swim in the pool and heard what the other drummers were playing. Banks said, "It was a combination of things.
He could make it swing a little bit And he could sing, which was an advantage because Mike and I were not very good at back-up vocals". Caryl's audition was unsuccessful; Rutherford thought he was not the player the group were looking for.

The now empty guitar sections in their songs allowed Banks and Rutherford to expand their sound and play what Gabriel described as "interesting chords". The band's sound evolved with Hackett's more aggressive electric guitar work and Banks adding a Mellotron previously owned by King Crimson to his set of keyboards. The band developed the piece further including the addition of new guitar parts from Hackett. Whitehead depicted scenes and characters from the lyrics to "The Musical Box" and a Victorian manor house based on Gabriel's parent's home on the album's cover.

After two replacement engineers were tried out, the band settled with John Burns and a new producer, Dave Hitchcock. It fared even better in Italy, where it went to No. Chris Welch of Melody Maker thought Foxtrot was "a milestone in the group's career", "an important point of development in British group music", and that Genesis had reached "a creative peak".
The show at the National Stadium in Dublin on 28 September marked the debut of Gabriel wearing a costume on stage, something that surprised the other band members as they were kept uninformed. Originally suggested by Charisma booking agent Paul ConroyGabriel went off stage during an instrumental section in "The Musical Box" and reappeared in his wife's red dress and a fox's head. Their six shows in three days at The Roxy in Los Angeles were well received by audiences and critics.
Its success led to an offer for Genesis to appear on BBC's national show Top of the Pops ; they declined as the group thought it would not suit their image. The album was written at Headley Grange in East Hampshire where upon their arrival, the building was in a state left by the previous band with excrement on the floor and rat infestations.
His absence from a considerable amount of writing sessions due to difficulties with his wife's first birth was something Rutherford and Banks "were horribly unsupportive" of.
Further work and mixing took place at Island where Brian Eno contributed synthesizers and effects that the album's sleeve credits as "Enossification".
When Gabriel asked Eno how the band could repay him, Eno said he needed a drummer for his track " Mother Whale Eyeless ". Collins said, "I got sent upstairs as payment". Gabriel is wearing the "Slipperman" costume. He was being portrayed as if he was 'the man' and it really wasn't like that. It was a very difficult thing to accommodate. So it was actually a bit of a relief. As a replacement singer had not been found, the band decided to record the album without vocals and audition singers as they went.
They placed an anonymous advertisement in Melody Maker for "a singer for a Genesis-type group" which received around replies. Collins proceeded to teach selected applicants the songs; Mick Strickland was invited into the studio to sing, but the backing tracks were in a key outside of his natural range and the band decided not to work with him.
His performance was well received by the band, and they decided that he should be their new lead vocalist.
