Don and Rhea (as always) were a treat! Sweet friends. Flamin’ git-picker Eddie “Bigun'” Day, Matt (aka Gravy), Scott “Biscuit” Hazen drums (no kiddin’: Biscuit and Gravy) and , The Big Mac Combo and Paul Draper Band allll cooked my chili nicely! Looking very forward to seeing ’em all at Sturgis Bike Week this summer.
And I played this newest lil’ creation there on an R.L. Burnside tune:
She’s 19 inches w. a 15 1/4 scale bridge to… well, there’s no nut as such as I set the other kind of nut in place so the lone string (diddley bow) would ride high enough on the ersatz tuner (eyebolt) not to require a proper nut as per normal in a guitar. Slapped a Dean Markley dot pickup (piezo inside) on it and really sounds pretty cool! Slide only- and the blues jus’ comes out like dat.
Dual-purpose as it still scratches my back well too 🙂
Cooler in Chicago but nice to sleep in my own bed next to the prettiest Mom God ever made.
Ok, in a couple of weeks off to New York State, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio shows. Looking very forward!
As always, thanks for stopping by, -Glenn
