Crafter Owners

A group for owners of a guitar that, to my ear, is one hell of a fine instrument and way underrepresented in the United States. You got one? Tell us about it!!!

Edward Sparks replied to Kerry Spitzer's discussion Dtar pickups in the group Real (5 string) banjo players

Reso Pickups

I got a Dtar pickup for my banjo and it is probably the best sounding pickup I've ever had on an instrument. I'm thinking about trying one on my reso and replacing my Lace. Anyone have any experience with Dtar placement?

Porchboard Floor Bass

Ever wish you could have a little rhythm while you're playing solo but don't like the mechanical beat boxes that you have to turn knobs or push buttons to get a noise that you have to follow?

Antonio Cotichini replied to Kerry Spitzer's discussion Engraving Truss Cover in the group Mandolin Players
"Kerry, I think my custom made GUILD truss cover is original and simple. I did it by myself. Bell shape, ebony glued on brass and last wisdom tooth engraved in the middle! Here's a picture."

Kerry Spitzer commented on Dan Gabel, Editor & Group Publisher's group Mandolin Players
"Ed- Is that your mando in the picture? Did you put that Baggs Radius on? I just got a new Kelly oval hole and a Raduis but was going to put it inside for cosmetic porpuses, but that looks pretty sweet painted black"

Engraving Truss Cover

I'm thinking about having a name engraved on my oval hole's truss cover. Anyone know how I go about that? I could also just have a small plate made, but I don't know where to go. Jeweler, trophy maker. etc? Any thoughts?

Kerry--Let me know when you're gigging once it starts to warm up--Kenosha's only a couple of hours from where I am (depends on construction on I-94). Any suggestions for a good beginner's mandolin? I've been listening to way too much Grisman/Garcia.
