I was fortunate to have these adjustable shelves already in the house when we moved in. I have come to appreciate them for lap steel guitar storage very much.
The shelves are adjustable. I can sto ...

This was a common thing in entertainment back then. I recall reading there were a number of Ella Fitzgerald's, and many soul singers all booking gigs under the star's names.

Brett,
The new longer heavier springs were the best of the three.
It certainly helps stiffen up the pickup from moving.
Mine still moves a little but you have to push it.

I have the same issue with one of the pickups in my "new" double neck 6. I was thinking stronger springs could do it. I'm going to take it apart and investigate. A shim would surely work.

I too have a bunch of those transcriptions from Jerry Byrd. The funny thing is most of the time he doesn't ever use the 6th string, which is why it's a little puzzling. I learn faster by example.

Mike, no worries, I like learning.

While playing lap steel I don't use reverb.

All my old larger size BF Reverb equipped Fenders were from my "Spanish" guitar days.

Sure, just do lighter strings. I run C6th on my Dobro. I can look later to see what gauges I have on there if you'd like.

I'd agree with the other post. Dobro. Tune it in C6. Or get a battery powered amp like the Roland mini cube and plug in a lap steel. You'll need some volume in the open air space busking.
