I'm playing a lot more with various local old time players in a variety of settings. Taking lessons with Russ Childers. Hoping that the Ohio Arts Council grant for an apprenticeship under him comes through for 2014/2015.
I replaced the original PegHeds tuners on my Snakewood/Dogwood Special with antique gold GOTOH tuners. I love them. The PegHeds were nice looking, but squirrelly in function. I also just yesterday installed an HO guage RR spike for a 5th string capo at the 7th on it and on my old Stew-Mac. Both look great and work fine. Got tired of the feel of the end piece of the Earl's Suspender Capo on the 1st string side when playing that fret. I will still use the suspender capo for anything other than 7th fret. That would only be in BG or Gospel music settings, likely.
