Blacky is GDGB. Browny is DGBE. Whitey is currently DGBE, but could change. These are all good players with big sound. Whitey sounds kind of brassy, but likely in the way of a resonator guitar. All have easy fretting at the head stock and Blacky and Whitey are higher action toward the box for slide work without fret rattle.

Great group!

Yes, Richard.  I do need to come up with some more descriptive names!

Thanks, Pat.  I am thinning the herd.  I think 8 have been gifted this spring and early summer.   But these 3 are staying home.

Can't pick a favorite, :LOVE em all!!

Great trifecta UJ! I like all three, but one in particular. The names just confuse me, it's the box one! Oh, and the four stringer!

Thanks, Dave.  Male CBG players are all stallions.   But modest.

Of course you did!   That was exactly my point!

Comment by Uncle John on June 16, 2017 at 12:29pm

Thanks, Gary.  I put a lot of time and thought into those names.

Gotta hand it to you, Unc: very creative naming!  ;-)   Nice, substantial boxes there!   Well done!
