Blind Doughboy replied to Robert Bryan's discussion Mounting resonator cones
"I personally wouldn't use the type of cone that screws to the top. The whole point of a reso cone is that it floats on the lip of a tone ring (or sound well). Not being connected - screwed on glued to anything - allows the cone to do what the…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Sean Murphy's discussion Three-string guitar with six strings?
"yeah . . . I've seen quite a few of them over the years (have built several . . . both cigar box and bent-wood pieces). They're a ton of fun with a diatonic scale.  Cool sound. I like leaving the bass string single, as a drone"

Blind Doughboy replied to Taffy Evans's discussion 10 minute spokeshape sharper jig
"No . . . it's a very good idea.  It reminds me of a jig that I've seen used to correctly trim the angled sides of a Savart, trapezoidal violin (so they fit perfectly with the back and front pieces)."

Blind Doughboy replied to Bill's discussion Why Not A Major Triad?
"I'd venture a guess that most CBGs are tuned to some sort of open tuning. There are countless variations that approximate a chord, such as GDG, AEA, DAD, EBE.  Makes it very easy if you want to just strum along and play basic slide. But,…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Ideas for supporting nuts
"Yup . . . that almost always works. No need to reinvent the wheel on this. I generally use a zero fret, but glue a bone or plastic nut against the end of the fingerboard for use as a string guide. Prior to the gluing, test fit the nut both for width…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Poorness Studios's discussion 2019 Huntsville CBG Festival???
"Very true, John.  I don't do CBG videos often, but when I do, they have to come in immediately with my fastest licks, continue at that tempo, and not run over 1 minute.  Otherwise, the analytics will show that time spent watching is…"

Blind Doughboy replied to Poorness Studios's discussion 2019 Huntsville CBG Festival???
""This place years ago, was always the place to be. There would be at least, 20 to 30 chatters here, all the time, thru the day and night." True, and there are several reasons for that. Social media plays a big role. People have shorter…"

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.

Blind Doughboy replied to John Sawyer's discussion Table saw fret blade or miter box and fret saw....
"I have the older version of the Stew Mac box/saw (no ball bearings on the guide). Much more accurate than a stock miter box and saw. will save you time, and allows you to set the depth of the cut. The table saw blade is good if 1:  You have a…"

Blind Doughboy commented on Andries D. EKER's blog post Strait Headstock versus Angled Headstock
"Hey Andries. I bought the taper jig years ago from Harbor Freight tools (was probably $10 or so . . . but I don't think they stock them these days). I have some carpenter's squares too, but for scarfs I like this better (mostly because the…"

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). …"
