"Just my 2 cents worth on Humbuckers vs P90s on a hollow body.  Had a nice Ibanez hollow body for a bit which had Humbuckers.  Before I bought it, I played a bunch. I find that with a hollow body, I don't like p90s.  Why? …"

Fingerpick shopping

Greetings and salutations. First post.  I am getting back into it after a long time out (like a generation),I expected to find retail fingerpick shopping as easy and varied as shopping for nails or screws at Ace or Home Depot. Annoyingly no.  Note I am not talking flat or thumb picks. Totally opposite situation. "Back when" I used black plastic thin point picks. Can't remember brand or anything else.  Closest thing I can find is Ernie Ball "picky picks," but they are metal. I've searched…See More

"I've seen new 5th Avenue Kingpins on eBay for $899.00. The Uptowns are pricier I think, probably because of the bigsby and maple finish.  Listening to the clips - I actually like both these models. The buckers seem to do overdrive better…"

This story has a happy ending, folks, and I'll start with it. After working for three weeks to painstakingly restore Bryan Sutton's flood damaged Banjo Killer, Shin Ichikawa finally got to test drive it today!

Day 15: The end is near. I can smell it.

Shin Ichikawa and I started the day by fitting and glueing the back binding. Last night's fitting of the top binding was tedious, but the tricks we learned made the fit of back binding go smothly.
