Ed's got another bass resonator right behind him sitting right below his fingers on the fretboard! If y look closely, you can see some other musical items in progress down in the lower right corner of this picture. Ed's getting ready for the Ozark Ceegar Box and Outhouse festival coming up soon. I hear Dolly Part On will be there, although some people think her act is nuthin' but a bust. She's a good song writer though!
