Selling The Blues Lagoon, 4-String Reso. • 9.5" Biscuit Cone • '61 Falcon cone cover

I'm selling one or two of my resos (trying to raise funds to buy a side bending machine),The details, photo, and video, are below, but this guy is an extremely fast player and very loud even unamped (but it does include internal pickup and volume control). It includes a cone cover that began life as the hubcap of a 1961 Falcon.Will sell for $250 + whatever the shipping comes to (probably around $50). Paypal would be best. You can contact me directly at:ronmarr1359@gmail.comMore info available…See More

Blind Doughboy commented on Andries D. EKER's blog post Strait Headstock versus Angled Headstock
"I generally use a 12-degree angle (scarf joint) on my headstocks. Usually add wings, shape, and drill the pegholes. The scarf for the angled headstock is simplicity itself, assuming you have a table saw and a taper jig (about $25 on Amakazon). …"

Three tune medley.

"Nice tri-cone.  I'd be interested in a video where we can hear it unplugged (hard to beat the sound of acoustic reso guitars)"
