Re: Specs for VE2000GG DLX

You are more than welcome.Enjoy your guitar.I suggest if you haven't done so already,get it set up to your playing style.I favour a VERY LOW action and Martin SP 11-52 sets phosphor bronze strings.

Be well.

Re: Specs for VE2000GG DLX

Hi Phil. As far as I'm aware the specs for the deluxe should be as it has always been,ebony fingerboard,rosewood back laminate sides etc.I have no knowledge of a downgrading of material. The deluxe in my opinion has always been an outstanding guitar in terms of material used and construction.I use m...

Re: Vintage Viator Strings

Hi Vic.I tune my Viator above concert pitch in a C tuning. Certainly a heavy gauge set will work well in concert pitch. A really light gauge set will open even more possibilities for tune well above concert. Hope this helps buddy. G
