Hey GHog, Welcome to the BigRoad!

Post your idea in the "Slide Guitar And Bottleneck" forum and you'll get all the feedback you need... We have several guitar builders here, Dougtheslug and Louisiana Grey come to mind. No shortage of opinions either!

Welcome groundhog! Have fun and post often, and keep us posted on your progress. I'm surprised Ricochet hasn't commented on the Johnson end of things yet.

Yeah, well, personally, I'm rather fond of my big, thick, chunky Johnson.

Groundhog, that phenolic biscuit/saddle combination sounds like a great idea to me. Haven't heard of it being done. Give it a try and let us know how it turns out! You and dougtheslug ought to get along fine with this sort of experimentation.

Welcome Groundhog.

When I was trying to figure out what kind of resonator to get (that I could afford) I came close to buying a Galveston sight unseen. I went with the wood bodied Dean and love it.

I look forward to hearing how your experiment turns out. Glad to have another experimentor on the board. I get nervous changing strings so I really benefit from the experiences of those who are more adventure prone.

#1 thing to remember about some people here is that they think "Johnson" was pretty funny thing to name a guitar brand. I'm one of them. And the rest of this post is just too good to be true... what a good straight man (so to speak). Welcome, by the way.

keep on trying! eventually you'll get your hands on a good one. That's what we keep telling one of my buddies who hasn't played one in quite some time so he's getting frustrated.

it's not that isolated, unfortunately, bad ones pop up all the time.

I think that's my quota for juvenile innuendo for the day.

I'll try really hard to overlook the offense, groundhog.

I'm interested in buying an acoustic/electric Galveston Resonator (metal body) guitar. Any good?
