I'll talk to you about that, Jonny. I've got a new (September 2001) Johnson JR-200 "Chicago Blues," in as-received condition except that I've put on heavy D'Angelico strings and set the intonation and cone tension screw properly. I've recently splurged on a Johnson tricone resonator and haven't been playing it much lately. It's got a nice tone and looks good. It's the natural mahogany finish. The outline of the body is similar to the Bluesmaster except the neck joins at the 14th fret instead of the 12th; if you already have a case it ought to drop right in. (I have a hard shell case for the Johnson, and it's designed to fit a 12th-fret body as well.)

If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, E-mail me at: johnculp@chartertn.net

I won't likely be checking my E-mail before tonight.

Krylon's a popular American brand of rattlecan spray paint. Doesn't look great if you just blast a lot of it onto rough-finished wood. I've tried it. :-)

hi ric - forgive the lower case, but the glass of wine in my left hand precludes shift-key).
sounds aboput right - a sort of dark, grubby, grotty, yuk colour.

I got pretty good at typing one-handed about 2 years ago. Just trying it out here for old times' sake. :-)

Hi, jonnyv
where did the "only five made" info come from? I'm interested, 'cos any day now one of those will be mine! (And ebay is doing a good job of ensuring that very fact, even as I type!).

cheers

Hi,
Yes, I read today a statement somewhere that "...less than 500 were made." 500 I can accept, but not 5 - pity really, cos we could say that of the other 3, "one is somewhere in Outer Mongolia, another is...". Oh, well.
