I'm looking to get some pull rods for a Wilcox that a fellow musician friend purchased. If anyone can help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

If you have his web address, you may get them from his Grand Daughter also. He passed away and his Grand Daughter was using his site on Face Book. Not sure if I still have her or not. She was trying to sell his stuff, for his expenses.

I don't have any information on him, if you or someone can point me in the right direction that would be great.

NICK, go to your search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing, or what ever one you use) and type in Chet Wilcox Steel Guitar, and you will find a lot of places. Just go to each until you find one with a phone number. If I can find one for him, I will come back to you. I have talked to him before, several times. He made a nice guitar for the money, and was a fine gentleman. I know he has past away.

From what I found, he lived in Indiana. The phone number I found is 217-454-8045. Not sure if it still works, as I said, The family contacted me on Face Book to see if I wanted to buy some of his equipment. They were trying to save their Grandma's house. I wish you the best of luck. I'm sure if you can't there will be someone on the Forum, that will be able to match you Check with Micky Adams or Mark Van Allen, or Lane Grey. I know his nylon nuts were a different size, but not sure of the rod size. I had one of his guitars for a while. It was nice, and for a SD it was light.

Nickolas, did you ever get in touch with Wilcox. His site just came on my FaceBook page yesterday. If you still need them, I will find it and send it to you. His name is Chet Wilcox, not sure how you might find it, but let me know.
