Shane,

I have a lot of hidden "gifts" (mostly left over from Junior High) that I only offer to "worthy" persons..... LOL (BTW, I really do appreciate JLowe's talent and work......)

the best,

Sam

Wow, I never thought that this post would go on for so many days, just cuz' of little ol' me. LoL....anyhow, I guess what I meant to say was, I wanted to make a cbg like the Lowbow...mainly for the simple reason, I like the idea of using two sticks as the neck because sometimes is is just hard to make a neck and a hole in the box for the neck, plus a headstock and all the other stuff it takes to make one. I like simple styles, and the Lowbow style looks nice and strait forward.

Anyhow, I have a pickup I might swipe from another project and attempt some sort of creation in the next few days. We'll see.
Well Jerry, Let that be lesson one in the provocative nature of all things Lowebow . . . . he-he/
Check out pat mAcdonald's use of the instrument!! He's awesome!

I will see your Pat MaCdonald and raise you a Ben Prestage, he has got some funky guitar chops goin' on.....

By the way, what are the things that he slides on the neck, one looks like a black permenat marker, is is like a capio or something to change the tuning?

Johnny, For me it's just a lark. I fully expect to find out how hard it is to make something this wierd sound good. Besides why would I expect you to be afraid of a "bottom dweller"? forever yours, Sam
