    Vintage Dunhill Stain Discoloration

    Agree with dmcmkt. Appears to me that the coloring varies as a function of the direction of the grain.

    Can Horn As A Material Be Fixed?

    Sorry about your pipe! I would guess that the horn material expands and contracts thermally a great deal more relative to the inside material of the stem, and as it cooled (while the interior stem material was still warm) the contraction of the horn caused the cracks to form because the horn...

    Any non smoking pipe collectors?

    I met a guy who lived in Vail, Colorado who only collected (high end) Radice pipes. Never smoked 'em. He liked how they looked and was thinking they were good investments.

    Any Guitar Players Amongst Us? I'd Like Your Opinion.

    Agree with acidpox. Whichever one you pick, spend the money to get a professional set up. Think of your guitar as a "kit" as they all need to be adapted to the player and to their new home, temperature and humidity. If you can, try them all out, one will probably speak to you.

    Boswell or Tinsky??

    While I don't have a Boswell, I enjoy my Tinsky a lot. If it matters, Tinsky is doing some very innovative designs. BTW, my avatar is the Tinsky Caldron I own.
