I noticed something on this CD, the newest copyright date of all the songs is 1985, the oldest is 1951. Conclusion: The best Country music was written a long time ago. Smile

I have one built by Cush Case, it's kind of old but in good condition. I can take pics tomorrow and send to you if you like. It's just a basic seat with no back.

I'll be 65 in a couple of weeks, and I only play steel out two or three times a year, I play guitar about twice that. I thought my steel playing had pretty much held it's own until I ran across an old ...

That's a cool setup Ian, I never thought of using a lathe. Jim Clark, that built Clark guitars used a radial arm saw with a buffing wheel mounted to it. There's lot's of ways to skin a cat as the sayi ...

I agree John, I like my steels, guitars, and cars to look like they just came out of the showroom. It always helps the resale if they look good.

To be fair, I have some other Harbor Freight stuff that has lasted a lot longer than I expected. You just never know.

I think the wheeled cases that came with my MSA's weigh around 20 lbs. I went from a very heavy Clark D10 to a Williams keyless D10 around 1985, and it felt like I was only carrying about half of a gu ...

Bryan, a buffer for aluminum should run around 3400 RPM, a guitar body buffer should run around 1000-1200 RPM.

Here's the polisher I use for aluminum, it started out as a Harbor Freight unit, but t ...

Like the old saying "one man's trash is another man's treasure". Sound is so subjective, everyone hears differently. I've heard some pro players that I didn't care at all for their tone, and ...

"Midnight Silence" just popped up on my Itunes playlist, it was on the "Lloyd Green and His Steel Guitar" album.

I'm a fan of Alumitone pickups, which I tend to use most of the time in my newer MSA's. I hear good things about Telonics pickups, but I haven't tried one of those yet either. I have five different se ...

You're right Bob, everyone has their own opinions, I think the old MSA single coils were some of the best I ever heard, I assume they were designed by Danny Shields. The '75 Classic I restored sounded ...

Bill Mack also used "Sound Waves" for bumper music for his midnight show on WBAP in Ft. Worth. I heard it for years before I knew who played it and bought the record it was on.

That's the setup I use Brad, sometimes I want the effects to die out on their own instead of being cut off by the volume pedal.

On one setup I used two MB100's, one before the volume pedal for dis ...

Besides the great sound, it's extremely easy to make adjustments on the fly, just like separate stomp box.

I just got a G5N a few days ago, but it's way different than my G5X, so I have another le ...
