"I doubt pin material has any effect on sound, unless the pin material increases the ability to hold the string correctly. Can't see the pin having vibratory qualities...just anchor the string"

"Yea, I don't really hear any diff with the ebony/abalone pegs, they certainly don't feel any heavier either. he brass on the other hand are very noticeably heavier...l both look nicer than the  plastic Seagull used in 98."

Fret Width

Hi all... The problem is that I cant get my 3 fingers inbetween the frets after C barre chords..though I also have to finger a normal A chord differently too..My question is this.... Are there any guitars out there that have extra wide spacings tween the frets???  I could really do with a standard guitar neck length but instead of 22 frets .. want only 16-18 .. That would surely give me more room ???/See More

Robert Williamson commented on Edward Sparks's group Capo Users Group
"The red plastic D'Addario NS Lite (see Seagull group for pic) does not look very robust. It is actually shorter than the NS so may be a problem with wider necks. I will never use this. I have some concerns that it may snap on a thick neck. "

Day 16: The Banjo Killer slays again!

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! The entire shop stopped working to watch this exciting moment, after which Shin received a standing ovation (well, we were all standing anyway). …

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. I am amazed at how cleanly both bindings look.  Some finish touch up will be required, but the overall appearance is more than…
