Just to follow up a bit more on the original question, here's a 'for sale' ad that's running presently in Quebec for a 6 string Guyatone Conqueror.

If you haven't already come across it, Jimmy Heffernen has a demo using the Meyer's goose neck mic on a dobro. Not the same beast as a tricone but at least it'd give you some idea of the sound.

When you read the reviews on StewMac for these tuners you hear quite a few people who have had 'dropped right in' success with them. Especially for Martins from the 40s. There's even a 37 Rickenbacker ...

Thanks, Bill.

I'm lucky with the string levels. Even though it appears to be a bit of a hack job in the cutting, actually the levels are bang on.

That's interesting to hear you mention that Rick ...

Thanks for doing that measure, Jack.

Perhaps both of our instruments came off the line early on a Monday morning (or else late on a Friday afternoon).

if you should do any filing on the bakelite, do NOT breathe that stuff.

They look great... guitars and tuners both!

Good picture. I can easily make out how they had to shift the screw holes a bit.
