Capos: Perfect Pitch Capo

Submitted by raburns on 8/13/2015

Where Purchased: online from manufacturer

Overall Comments

The perfect pitch capo did not work for me.  If adjusted as per instruction it reduced the sustain of the strings.  If I tightened it to get sustain back, then I had to retune.  I also found its size and position on the fretboard interfered with my left hand.  Because of shipping costs I didn't bother to return it and just took the loss.  Try before you buy.

Tailpieces: Kershner Tailpiece - Heavy

Submitted by raburns on 12/21/2011

Where Purchased: Stewart-McDonald

Overall Comments

Good quality nickel plated brass tailpiece. Very reasonable price from Stew-Mac, $34.00 plus shipping. Looks great on my Gold Tone BG250F and really improved the sound. Sounds like a great bluegrass banjo now. I highly recommend this tailpiece as a replacement for the poor quality Gold Tone tailpiece.

guitarology-Dean Johnson's Music

Submitted by raburns on 6/11/2010

Overall Comments

Guitarology is an Ebay store operated by Dean Johnson's music store in Florida. I purchased a brand new Gold Tone BG250F blem with a small discoloration on the headstock with case. I saved over $100.00 compared to unblemished. Service was good. The store owner spoke directly with me when I phoned, and answered e-mails quickly. Banjo was shipped FedEx the day after Paypal payment and arrived in Georgia two days later. I recommend checking them out on Ebay for some deals.
