Jeepers, John, you must be well on the way to creating a worldwide shortage of resos by buying them all up :lol: . Good sound, this one though. I really like the tones you are getting up in the treble range, quite sweet and clean. :D Peace

Or... As I see it, I help expanding the number of vintage reso's left to the world and the blues community by saving the one's people would throw away!!

Good one, Johno. Yeah it's always a thrill to bring a broken down hack back into business. I saved a lovely little mandolin a few years ago - had to reglue or replace all the braces under the top working through the soundhole which was as big as a duck's egg. I had to use a mirror and make special cramps to reach right in, but she's playing again and will still be, long after I've gone. :D Peace

I can just picture BJ rooting through the dustbins of Stockholm every night trying to feed his habit. I had a similar problem myself with slides if you need any help?...

I like it, if I had one like that then I wouldn't be saving up for another.
