Fretboard Templates

Here is a zip file that contains a handful of commonly used fretboard scales. Simply print out the PDF, cut it out with scissors and tape it together so the lines match. Then tape it to your fretboard and mark the fret locations. Enjoy!

CBGs for Wounded Warriors

Posted on April 13, 2011 at 6:31pm 5 Comments

A while back I contacted Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington DC to see how I could go about donating some of my/our instruments to military personnel who were recovering from their injuries in the hospital. Oddly enough, their response was:

 

"We sincerely thank you for your sentiment and dedication in deciding to

have a positive impact on those in the Armed Services. However, upon

review of your application, it has been determined that we cannot

Dan,

Do you have any information (an e-commerce page maybe) that gives info on your flat pickups?  Looking for pricing & pics.

Wow Dan. Sorry to hear your in hospital. Hope all is well. Don't worry over my order. Time will take care of that. Get better. .. Dave

Hi Dan. I went to your site and made the order. Got it done. Thanks. I'm having email issues so communication is best for now with Nation. Thanks again. .. Dave

Hi Dan, Happy New year. I need another Slimbucker. I have a three string needing it. Simple brass cover. Let me know how to place the order. Thanks, Dave
At 8:35pm on May 19, 2016, Dave Lynas said…
Hi Dan. I sure love that Slimbucker that you sent for Vinnies banjo. I want one for another banjo. How should I order one or two? How much $. I love the simple metal cover. Thanks, ..Dave

I have been really wanting to build a CBG with a pickup and Anonymous pick told me you had some flat pickups for sale. From the pictures they look great.

Thanks Dan

Dan,
Received with gratitude! Thanks for your contribution and generosity. Your Karma just got boosted ;-)

Thanks Dan, I'm at that point in making guitars where I guess I need to start winding my own pickups, the last realm. But I will order a few of yours or flatpups soon.  I want to hear one of the new Gold foil pickups Ben's selling but no demo there yet either. Thanks again

At 6:20pm on October 29, 2014, RTZGUITARS said…

Hi Dan, I noticed Elmar is sending business your way on your Thintalker pickups. I was wondering if you had a vid or recording of one being used. Didn't see one one your vid page or Humidor site?  Thanks you.
