One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

A great GWTW forum friend of mine whose name I just canít bloody remember!!! (Even though we used to send each other amazing kites) posted for sale an ancient Gibson J45 that an old musician friend of his had to move on.  I bought it for my son who was just starting out playing (12 years old). It was overkill at the time but that guitar was set up and magicked by a great Luthier in Portugal (another story). The boy, who never read a book in his life is (ten years later) studying for his Masters in jazz music at the Guild Hall in London.  I used to post in here clips of him playing but havenít for years.  Thought I would do the proud Dad thing and share something current from him.  This is not on the J45 which is still his favourite guitar fondly remembered as the GWTW forum guitar but another Gibson.

Bravo. When I was 10 my Aunt gave me a 1959 ES 175. It got stolen when I was 13. I never thought it was over kill and I bet your boy never thought of his J45 as overkill either  Wink. Played different hollows and semi hollow Gibsons since but I was always slightly disappointed. Probably the nostalgia thing. Bet your boy feels the same about his J45 and as a adult truly appreciates it can never be replaced. Classical is a gas, Country swings, Rock rocks. Love it all but I think Jazz just RULES  Cool.
