Isn't it amazing that Jerry, Buddy, Santo, Kayton, and so many others were able to play in tune with a fixed bridge? Now steel guitarists have to learn to adjust string height and intonation thanks to ...

Yes, those adjustable bridges are a solution in search of a problem. In fact, the bridges are the problem. That’s why today’s players need videos like that to tell them how to correct the intonati ...

Dillion also makes exact copies of Tele, Strats, and Gibsons. Oh Well
