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

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!!

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

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

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

FGM DGBE

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

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…"
