My hobbies and interests are playing vintage guitars, collecting vintage guitars and old records. I also maintain and update the Nick Lucas website. I’m also interested in 1968-70 Dodge Chargers.

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

You do a fine job with guitar picking out there!
I love Nick Lucas too.

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!!

Bob Mesher replied to Bob Cron's discussion Norman's Preferences
"All I remember was when he had a Martin with flush frets on it (i.e. just markers for a guitar that was designed for slide only) and he had it converted for flat picking. "
