Too many squarenecks in the closet.  This is a solid starter or backup instrument in great shape.  Took it out today and gave it a new set of strings, a touch of lemon oil on the fretboard and a quick polish.  Ready to play at the next Pickoid jam.

  • Laminate body all-around with a sunburst top.
  • Sound-well for that traditional Dobro sound.
  • Stock stamped cone has been replaced with a quality Quarterman spun cone.
  • Spider bridge has been leveled and polished.
  • Bridge has been replaced with ebony capped maple.
  • Includes a nice Featherlite case.

$300 obo

A D-28 is a certainly a sweet guitar.  Big A has a D-35 and I believe a D-28.  You might noodle on one of his one Wednesday evening to see how it 'fits'.

Have you considered a 00 or 000 body guitar?  To me these seem to be more 'finger-style' oriented than the drednaughts.  If you're getting the itch for a new axe my suggestion is to make the rounds and play em all - usually one will 'speak' to you.

Just one pickoids opinion...

Looks like the file extension '.wrk' is causing problems.  What is it you're attaching? an MP3 or an AVI or...?

Not sure if it was obvious but Big A attached a great tune from Reagan to that first message.  Look for the little speaker icon towards the bottom of the post.  Great stuff Reagan!  Still listening to the CD he left me last time he was in town, "Down the Road from Arkansas".


Pickoid Discussions / Favorite local bluegrass pickers and fiddlers?

hmmm, local scene b'grassers...

Of course Mark and the Somethin' Blue gang are up there.  The Old School is a long standing favorite.  Though I haven't seem them perform in a while the Toad Suck Symphony stands out in my mind.  Course that could just be that grassed up version of Purple Haze they stuck forever in my mind.  Faril Simpson and the boys show up ocassionally and put on a great show (and tell great stories).  I'm sure I'm missing a scad of groups but that's all that came to mind at the moment...


...and Mick the Pick gets my vote too for most versatile picker around...b'grass, folk, blues, somba - you name it an the man can toss it out in wonderous form...obviously virture of a misspent youth  ^_^

Pickoid Discussions / Big Moe - MP3

...big bad moe... Cool song Alan - needs a dobro.

I do believe this marks a new era in Pickoid land!  Online MP3s!  We need to draw up an FAQ on making and posting MP3s - any volunteers?


Beth and I kick back under Bill's awning.  Did I mention it can get chilly?

Beth, Bill and I jam back at the campground.

Why is it my g-run sounds nothing like Uwe's even on his guitar?

Beth helps me admire Uwe Kruger's Gallagher.

Beth, Jessica and I will be there!

We've attended several years in a row now and not once have we been dissappointed.  It's unlike any festival we've ever attended.  It has the perfect mix of old and new with an international twist to make it interesting.  Artists are easily approachable and there are several venders there to give you GAS (guitar aquistion syndrome).   B)

Sounds like another good session Big A, sorry I missed it.  Should be back in action in the next couple weeks, still a little under the weather.

So, what is this I hear about a new song you've written?  Post us an MP3 so we can hear what you've been up to.
