    Re: about gluing in a fret

    Water thin CA will wick in there and hold it well. Put lots of auto paste wax on the fretboard on both sides of the fret and mask off the underside of the neck with low tack tape. The idea is, you...

    Re: acetone and ABS plastic

    I never heard of acetone fusing ABS. It does fuse cellulose. I think with ABS you have to go with something like Duco or CA.

    Re: MD315 speedneck

    Just to add one little thing about what Daryl said. I’m sure he meant SINGLE EDGE razor blade, right? Trying this with a double edged blade would be a big mistake! This might seem like a no brainer...
  5. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    Hey there Clark. You took my comments exactly right. But it’s hard to convey a tongue firmly in cheek online.:)

    You know, just because I’m not a bluegrasser doesn’t mean I haven’t dabbled. I was...

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    Yeah, you know, I get that. I really do. All the guy wanted to do is play a song. But unfortunately he was pointed to a resource that had a free distribution copy that in my opinion shouldn’t exist....
  7. Re: Open chords vs closed chords for chops n chucks

    Not a bluegrasser here, I play Celtic and old time. So I revel in open chords! But alas, that will not give you the chop sound you want in bluegrass. Only 4 finger chords will do that.

    I had folks...

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    Honest question, honest answer. There are a lot of nuances when you deal with copyrights. Playing by yourself in your bedroom is fine, of course. You can even open the doors and windows if you want....

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    Why yes Shaun, now that you mention it, I AM a riot at parties! Seldom do I go to a party where SOMEONE doesn’t say “Please Don, won’t you regale us all with your knowledge of copyright law?”. Keeps...

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    I would like to point out a few things in response to what has been said about my previous post.

    To Jeff- Money is not the issue. Intellectual property is the issue. I am a member of ASCAP, but I...

    Re: Ashokan Farewell Tabs anyone?

    Are you all aware that by posting the tab here on the Cafe’, you are breaking the law? Many people make the mistake of thinking that “Ashokan Farewell” is a Civil War song because it was featured so...

    Re: Leon Redbone - RIP

    Very sad to hear of this. Of course he retired about 3 years ago rather abruptly and perhaps the health problems started then. I had the opportunity to see him perform about 10 years ago. Thoroughly...

    Re: Best Place to Sell aside From Classifieds

    I don’t sell much anymore, and when I do I try to sell locally to avoid shipping. But when I was shipping, I just used the boxes from Instruments I bought to replace the ones I was selling! :)

    Re: Recommendations for a ruined(?) finish

    Waterlox is a bit different from Tru Oil. Tru Oil does not contain resins, so it is not technically a wipe on varnish. All of the protection comes from the catalyzation of the oils. Waterlox contains...

    Re: Need some help please.

    FYI I just looked it up in the Vintage Guitar Price Guide 2014 (newest I have; I’m due to get a new one). It says a 2-15 in excellent condition retails for $1350-$1650, but I have to say I have NEVER...

    Re: Need some help please.

    Yours looks to be in better shape than most. The non original case is an issue because they don’t fit well in cases other than the original. It’s pretty common to see these sell for 900-1000 just...

    Re: Recommendations for a ruined(?) finish

    As stated previously, grain filler is not necessary on maple or spruce, so you included a step that had no purpose and used a product that nobody here recommended or even is that familiar with. It...

    Jim and others who may be interest. After a little research I found a seller on Amazon who sells solid wood strap buttons similar to the ones Stew Mac used to sell. Seller’s name is Iluak Ivory. He...

    Not sure about that particular model but I can help with the wood. The term “sycamore”, as used in the USA, refers to a tree in the Genus Platanus. The wood is very similar in appearance to maple,...

    Re: How do you install an endpin?

    I just wanted to jump in and point out that although the tapered wood engine with friction fit is very traditional, it’s not the most practical if the player is going to use it as a strap button. It...

    Off the shelf item available for many years. Not sure when they stopped making it or even if they did stop. They were made in Germany I believe and commonly known as a “kidney tailpiece”.
