Taffy Evans replied to Hans's discussion Tin reinforcement question

Taffy Evans replied to Robert Bryan's discussion String buzz

Taffy Evans commented on Danny Gordon's blog post string tension
"Hi Dan, it may not be the strings causing the problem, it could be the width of the fingerboard, height of the frets or lack thereof, depth and profile of the neck. Or the way you grip the neck with thumb and finger. Try a different wrist angle or…"

"Oooops, 12th fret is marked with 3 pearl dots, but you's would have noticed that. Taff"

Taffy Evans replied to Taffy Evans's discussion My new recycled Resenator build
"Thanks for the comments everyone. Hanns, the two or four dots that are in the fingerboard tongue over the body normally covers the screws or bolts that secure the fingerboard to the top. Resonator necks or normally bolted onto the body. Obviously…"

Hans replied to Taffy Evans's discussion My new recycled Resenator build
"Potentially stupid question: Why are there double dots on the 15th and 19th fret on this one (and double dots on the 19th fret on your beauty, Taffy)? Is that a Dobro thing?"
