"I like all 3 of those too! The Dawg is a little "dark" sounding for me, but it seems like it would be great in certain contexts.
Just for fun, I bought a pack of a dozen 50 cent Dandrea Pro Plecs and used some files to make a speed bevel-…"
"I love my Larivee-OM-03 with a spruce top and mahogany backs and sides. I also love my Blueridge BR-40, it has made me re-think the idea I always had that a guitar had to have solid backs and sides to be any good!"

Tell us more about yourself (place a Bio here if you wish)
I've been playing rock and blues for 17 years and have learned a few fiddle tunes over the years, but just recently became a little obsessed with Clarence White and Tony Rice, and really started getting into the flatpicking style. Luckily my dad is my favorite flatpicker and I get free lessons :) I've been trying to come up with somewhat "original" arrangements of fiddle tunes, but it is difficult not to quote the flatpicking masters maybe a little too much! I'm just getting into this style but I love it!
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( email@example.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More
I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
