Ephemera: Odd One Out (1920s)


Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Gibson, Schmick Lyric!

Vega made the Schmick "Lyric" banjos with this resonator/pot setup and they're very cool. Here's one I worked on.

No offense, but you don't half waffle, mate.
Why all the (misinformational) pedantry.
And that saddle you made for the Stella 12 string is rather silly, at least file the ends down, for heaven's sake.
Geez, I bet you ride a recumbent bike and drive a Prius too.
Thanks, Anon~

This is not a forum. I don't delete your comments because I respect open discussion. Insulting me is not discussion: it's rude. I took shots of the Stella before final setup (I wait a few days for it to settle before finalizing my work). It's not entirely -done- yet, but I wanted to share pics.

I don't like biking all that much, to be honest, and I drive a rusty old Volvo XC70.

If you'd like to discuss things without venom, call me up on the phone and talk to me personally. I'd be more than happy to talk to you and we can talk pros/cons about all sorts of things. But -- I'm assuming you're simply a troll -- so get lost, if so. I mean, do you actually do work on instruments or just criticize other people? If the latter, what's the point???
