Doggone it Unc. For me that changes from day to day. I'm gonna have to think about this one for a minute or two and get back to the discussion.
Erasmo, you surprised me a bit. I don't know you well yet and I tended to think you were more of a 6 string guy. That is a mighty handsome 4 stringer. Good choice.
Me too, Jim. I have been pretty fickle over the years with my faves - and quite a few former faves are gone. I hope to keep the chosen 3 forever.
Yes, Cello. With a name like yours, I knew you would pick a refined and sophisticated piece. Nice choice. I would like to take that for a test drive.
Thanks UJ! Everyone who has played da' Cello Bow (some of them real musicians not a hack like me) loves it!!
I'm with Jim. Changes daily.
It may be the one I'm about to finish...just don't know yet. I could say with some confidence that it's most likely a four string though.
Well Unc, if it was just to play, I'd go with my CB Fiddle but I can't sing too well with it so I narrowed it down to these two. They both sound good acoustic and great plugged in. The 4 string gives me a bunch of tuning options which I like to have but the fretted 3 string is one I could easily make my main instrument.
In a few weeks, I think I will have my new one done, and I'm sure it will be my favorite. I was longing to build a Lap Steel and when Shane posted the video of his 2 x 4 it really motivated me. I bought a piece of curly maple out of NY State and it arrived last Tuesday. I have to put in the pup pocket, control and jack pockets, drill for string ferrels and then I think I am about ready to start sanding. I came up with my own fret board and I think it will be user friendly. At least that is the plan. I sure like the sound of a Lap Steel. Mine will be my take on the National "New Yorker" model. That guitar from the '40's, 50's, and 60's sure was nice. I see them for sale, but can't swing the $$$$$$ so I will do the next best thing. make one. Mine won't be black and white like the original. I will make mine red and white. So stay tuned as in your guitars and hopefully the completion of my new project.
These are my two favorites. Second Hand Rose and the Last Waltz. I like Second Hand Rose the best, but I play and sing unfavorably with either one.
