Thank you Eric for your comment. Ya, tuning lower not only sounds cool, but definitely takes a lot of stress off of the CBG neck. This is a good approach when stringing and tuning older vintage guitars too that don't have truss rods. Enjoy your practice, Keni Lee
You're right! Fanned frets ARE comfortable to play. I've done 2 builds with them, the other one being a doubleneck submitted in a contest on the "other side", if you catch my meaning...LOL! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, by the way (belated though it may be)! I have been checking out your work for the last few minutes, and I am impressed with your luthery! NICE work!
well that aluminum plate is just the connector plate in the pic for the cans, i will mount it to the box top,the coverplate is going to be made in a triangle shape from an old stovepipe and the triangle shape is taken from the design of the tri-cone resonators of the early dobro days.
hey godzilla,thanks for the comments on the padron copper resonator, yep i be are crazy but its kinda fun to make stuff most folks would not think of. the brown bottle slide is a corcidin bottle that i bought from e-bay and got it real cheap so i had to try it out. i just loaded a short sound check vid of the copper reso if you might like to hear how it sounds,i used that brown bottle slide on the vid.thanks again man for the comments.
Hey Bro, drop your addy in my inbox and I`ll pack 2 up. I got to send Rodney`s out to the west coast too, so I`ll send both packages around Friday. 2 Las Cabrillas boxes for an ebony fret board [ hope it`s Not slotted] and some ebony chunks. Sounds like a fair trade...yep ..done deal! ....Thanks.....Randy
