    Re: New Gibson Bill Monroe Hall Of Fame Model?

    I kind of dig it. The distressing, on the front, looks good. It captures a lot of the key signature wear. But why the heck didn't they do the scroll right? It's way to open. It needs to be...

    Ricky's expression represents how I would probably look if someone handed me Jerry Garcia's guitar to play.

    Music is collaborative, not competitive. I think they supported each other very tastefully.

    Re: Did R.L. Givens ever build a "Gibson" A-5 copy?

    Could be an old conversion. CE Ward used to do those, rights?
  12. Re: Easiest/safest procedure for adjusting bridge tilt?

    I saw Mike Compton do this on a mandolin a guy handed to him to check out before a concert once. The owner handed it to Mike to play and give an opinion on. Mike played it for 15 seconds, looked it...
