Thanks for the Arthur Smith info RTZ. I hadn't heard.  http://youtu.be/KA1Fy-zgI9Q   This is a clip of Marci Marxer playing his famous Guitar Boogie on CB guitar. She's a pretty amazing player. I'll have to look into monokote though I'm sure it'll cost more than an empty pop bottle!

Just finished a cat dish reso sounds like crap, where is my heat gun. This reminds me of monokote for R.C. planes. I like the fact it transparent.

Thanks Clarky, Muddy, and Jamie. You better paddle faster Jamie - the mountain men are a-comin'! Thanks bug. This is what we call double C tuning but this is tuned up to what should be double D (a,D,A,d,e) but I think it's a wee bit flat. Bluegrassers usually stay in standard (g,D,G,b,d) and capo up when neccessary but us clawhammerers use about 4 different tunings. Thanks Maddog!

Great look and sound! I would have never thought of using recycled plastic for a banjo head!

Love it, sounds really nice and loud.
