    You cast a spell on me...

    I went to read the translated lyrics. The norns are mentioned. I always loved learning about the norns.

    Our favorite board game Talisman has a Woodlands expansion. The norns show up in varied ways. And watch out, those cards will kick your ass. It's my favorite expansion but my husband hates it because you can't escape the magic and mayhem of the woodlands. It comes out onto the main board on a regular basis. I personally love it.

    Hey Aragorn ... riddle me this: Tell me what you know about 12-string guitars made in Japan circa 1969? Are they supposed to be good?

    Well, what brand and/or company are we talking about, and are they acoustics or electrics?

    Japan is well known ─ and more so nowadays than in earlier times ─ for producing top-quality guitars. Yamaha, Aria, Ibanez, Fernandes, ESP and Schecter all have their roots in Japan, and that is still where their custom shop stuff is being made; their mass-production stuff is now all manufactured in Korea, Indonesia and China, and often at the same factories ─ e.g. Samick, Cort, et al.

    Fender also once built guitars in Japan ─ they were more expensive than their Mexican-built guitars but more affordable than their American-built models ─ and those Japanese-built Fenders are now highly sought after. The Pro line of Gretsch ─ which is still a standalone marque but its production and marketing are in the hands of Fender ─ is also still manufactured in Japan.

    That said, there were also a bunch of Japanese companies offering very-low-budget copies of the typical American electrics ─ mainly Gibson and Fender ─ back in the 1970s and early 1980s, and they were of very poor quality. My very own first guitar was a cheap Japanese knockoff of a Fender Stratocaster, and while it was beautiful, it was also very, very bad. But at the same time, the factory that built those cheap guitars was also making more expensive Gibson and Fender copies, and they were incredible value for money, on par with the higher-end Squiers and Epiphones today.

    What I can tell you with certainty is that my brother's Yamaha flat-top acoustic ─ which I myself now own ─ was a very affordable guitar, and that it's a really, really good one. It was affordable because it doesn't have any electronics in it, and it also doesn't have any binding or fancy inlays. But it's got a mahogany back and sides, a rosewood bridge and high-quality tuners, and it sounds every bit as good as a Martin Dreadnought.

    So, you'll need to be more specific if you want me to give you my opinion.

    Yamaha is quality stuff, and if it's from 1969, then it's considered genuine vintage (and thus worth a lot of money).

    My stereos and acoustic guitars are from Yamaha, but I've heard that the quality isn't as good as it used to be. Still good enough for me!

    I bought one for my brother for his birthday. I talked to him today and while he loved it as a gift, he claimed that mostly classical musicians use it.
