Fruitcake For Christmas

"Hope you get all your wishes come true this Christmas Jim. Including fruitcake! Really enjoyed this one. Great washboard in there too. Seems to be less washboard playing around so this was a brilliant change from just guitar. Merry Christmas to you…"

Acoustic demo of the tricone resonator build

"In answer to your question Bear, I think this definitely leans toward resonator in tonal quality. That nice little metallic growl certainly informs the ear that it isn't a wood top acoustic. I like it!"

Never know!

A while back a fellow came into my shop in WV while visiting his parents who live nearby. He purchased a Gourd Banjo and CB Fiddle, my two highest priced items, saying he was a musician and composer from California. I got nosy and looked him up. This is him!!

Lost two friends today within 24 hours. One was a well known rockabilly guitarist and bass player for Danny Gatton and the Fat Boys.  Billy Hancock used to come to my gigs and be real supportive of what I was playing.

The second friend was less well known but we played gigs together since we were teenagers. Here's to you Chuck B

I thought so too but, when I tried to send you a message you didn't appear in the list.  Anyway, I know you are a busy fella but let me know if you are interested in the Fade to Black tune.  AP says you are the perfect guy and he has plans for a video as well. I don't have any time table on it, just at your leisure if you are interested.

Well Jim,

Based on the number of variables involved I think I will forward your pricing info. I may try to do a fiddle build but would have to fine tune my skills before a sellable one is complete. My customer is looking for Christmas. What is your lead time and what info would you need?

Thanks,

Jeff
