The 4 screws attach the top deck to the frame, leaving it free to resonate as a sound board.This sounds like a good idea.
There's a small gap between the top deck and the body. You can slip a busines ...

b0b doesn't have them in stock here, but I wish he did - my favorite dobro strings over the past few years are the Ferrell Stowe Signature set from Black Diamond.

On those top 8 strings, pedals 5 & 6 reflect the most common bar slants. Jerry Byrd often retuned his low C to C#. That's where pedal 8 came from.
