I bought a tired neglected mid 70’s Yamaha slothead 12 String
The neck is twisted and the bridge had risen

Local master Chuck Cellino dressed the frets flat again and custom glued the bridge back down
Which brought every splinter into audio ignition at 440 and even better at 432
She’s never been played, no fretwear

But in the rickety case were these ancient and post war tools also unused
Remember?

I had a pitch pipe, pick holder, and massive capo like that,, back in the day. No Yamaha booklet tho.

(432 hz just recently, btw)

Then these could be yours.

Years ago, a guy found a banjo in a dumpster, by accident. We said, that was no accident, we PUT that banjo in there just for you.

432 seems to be a whole garden of worms, good for ya. My dogs sit with me now while I play.

Remember there was never enough capo.

I remember very clearly. I was once employed by the company that made that capo.

You're welcome, but I don't know what I'm looking at in your photo.

The top of the capo. It says Hamilton and the felt is hardly used

Thanks for taking a look. I"m not really interested in provenance here, just an interesting "barn find."
