  1. Re: The Guitars (and Mandolins) of Ken Burns' Country Music

    For anyone so inclined, the Facebook Group is fun and informative.
  2. Re: Did you catch the Ken Burns Country Music series opening?

    I'm consistently amazed at how much of the story I already know and also by how much of the story I don't know about. I count that as part of the latter. :cool:

    All in all great stuff.

    Re: 1915 Gibson A Pickguard issue

    Hogo and RC are exactly correct. They are at an angle and are usually somewhat corroded and very difficult to remove.

    I believe these were installed at like a 30 degree angle so the nails could...

    Part of a long folk music tradition to write songs that follow common melodies, etc etc

    New information about the famous "botched" Gibson repairs was found in the new Tom Ewing book on Monroe released last Sept. It seems this shipping ledger from Joe Spann is for a previous repair...

    The Sun Jumped Up This Morning

    Recently got into Tim O'Brien's version of this old Woody Guthrie tune. I've done some googling and wasn't able to find that much. I wouldn't mind just a loose chord chart and try to figure it out...

    There was a mention of the Virzi "pins" a little earlier. They were very tiny brads that were driven into each foot, then nipped off to leave maybe a sixteenth of an inch protruding. (Couldn't be...

    Here's my attempt:

    Gibson under previous ownership (Henry) made a bunch of terrible decisions about electric guitar design, including this monster of a guitar with too much electronics and a...
