Skeesix commented on David J Lohnes's blog post Can a slide be played with a fretted neck on a CBG?
"Basically what Anonymous Pick said - make sure the first (thinnest) string is about 1/8" from the edge of the neck, just like on a real guitar. Otherwise, you'll hear the slide clanking against the frets. It's possible to play it…"

"I found this video on Youtube - it's from a local news station in Nashville. They reinterview George Gruhn and he basically retracts what the WaPo article said.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgUl7x9P6wg My take on it is, maybe Fender,…"

"The winder doesn't have a way to mount the pickup bobbin unless you modify it. You'll need to come up with a flat disc that can be mounted on the end of the shaft with a shaft collar.  Unless you've bought it already, I second…"

Hey Skeesix, I received my prewired pickup and jack yesterday. Fast delivery. Thank you very much for the directions, too.

Great job. Thanks again.

Skeesix, the pickup on your slide guitar instructionarl video sounds nice & crisp. Whats your secret? Do you have a decent amp? (All I have is a crappy Honeytone...)

Hi Skeesix - Thanks for leaving a comment with my last vid. You asked how I got the vocal effect - its not very clear from the vid but I'm using an old telephone ear-piece as a microphone. Inspired by Bluesbeaten Redshaw and Bol Log III. The signal is then routed via some distortion, a bit of compression and then a little reverb was added. 

Glad you liked the vid and here's wishing you a wonderful 2011.
