Yeah, Frank Ray is THE MAN for vintage guitars. Most honest guy I know too - he don't gouge you.

The picture with Nick Lucas is way cool!!! Glad to see Grady Martin's name mentioned he was one of my biggest influences. Thanks for the request. Z

Yep. I've only had it for a few weeks, but I'm loving it. I was looking at David Grier's '58 for a while, but I found out it sold just as I was getting ready to buy it. I'd like to hear what the buyer thinks of Grier's, but I guess all things work out in the end because I'm real happy with this one. Thanks for looking me up on here, it's good to know ya.

Love the photos of your guitars, too.

Later.
Matt

Hi,

Thanks for the friend add! Will You Miss Me is a favorite cross-picking song for me and I really enjoyed your rendition. I used to play with a guy who knew George Shuffler pretty well and had bought a guitar from him. I got to meet him once. He seemed a really nice guy. I see you're Asheboro. That's not really that far away. I'm about 30 miles on up 64W from Lexington. It's nice to see there's somebody within a hundred miles of me, anyway!!

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"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…"

ETHAN DEUTSCH left a comment for timothy allred
"Hi, Timothy.  I was contacted by a Timothy Allred about the guitars I make and I wasn't able to send an email back to him because his email program didn't know my email address.  Are you he?  Thanks."

Tim Allred contact

Howdy.  I'm a guitar maker and I got an inquiry from one Tim Allred on my contact form that I use on my website to try to cut down on spam.  Unfortunately he didn't give a phone number and he gave an email address that will accept messages only from addresses that are on his list--which obviously mine is not.  So my messages have all been returned to me.  There are many Tim Allreds around.  I noticed that this site has a member by that name, who is clearly interested in guitars, so I though…See More
