SOURCE: yamaha fg700s acoustic what type of laquer is used

Trying to patch an area and match the stain will be a futile exercise. You will need to refinsh the whole top. Often MANY coats of Nitro-Celluose laquer is used. You will wet sand with grits starting around 600 and working up to 4000 which is about as rough as copy paper. I have purchased the laquers from a company in Ohio in spray cans. Often a dozen coats and then a clear coat is applied with wet sanding between coats.

Can you date gibson acoustic with serial number L-67913 should be LG-2

No, but you can try:

"Serial numbers can be extremely tricky," says Gibson Customer Service Manager Jason Davidson, whose team fields calls and emails regarding every Gibson division. "Some can tell you a lot about a guitar, and some don't really tell you anything. Gibson has had so many different schemes over the years, and now we're using reissue serial numbers that look like the old serial numbers."

Tell me about this guitar

Pretty broad question. It's a parlour guitar, made in China. They are very highly regarded, well built, and can be used for most acoustic applications, though I've heard fingerstyle players especially like the tonality. Solid spruce top, rosewood sides, and a 3 piece rosewood/maple back, with a mahogany neck and rosewood fingerboard. It's got a 1 11/16 nut and a nice TP4T electronics package.

If you want more information on that specific guitar, email Tak with your serial number, and they will give you a production date.

I have a Kay guitar, cannot find any serial no

Can you forward some photos to me? Serial numbers and Kay guitars vary by the age of the instrument. Also can you take a photo of any label inside the sound hole or at least tell me what it says in there, where was it made, etc. I'll await your response.

When I connect the onboard Aura via USB to my computer and open the Aura imaging software, it doesn't recognize my device and a fishman product..... HELP!

You could call Martin Guitars at 1-888-433-9177, or visit their website:

And/or try Fishman:
Although they don't have a recognizable toll free number, they do have an online form.

If you have access to support for your computer, you could try that, instead.

Good luck, and I hope this helps!
