    This vid is for info on voicing or tuning the sound board. I am returning to building a few guitars in the near future.

    I havenít read this entire thread so forgive me if already discussed or common knowledge to everyone but me. But I just discovered that Tommy Emmanuel had an older brother (died in 2018) who may have been as good or a better guitar player. I didnít know that.

    You’re all good Ron, we haven’t covered Phill Emmanuel yet. They were a great team showmanship wise and cut their chops as child performers.

    I first saw Kingfish in 2015 when he was 15 years old. He was very good then, but he was playing too much at 500 notes per minute just because he could. I didn't think his playing was pretty. He is maturing now into someone that I love to listen to.

    Jimmy - last fall we were wandering around Lucca - a small walled city/town west of Florence. They apparently have quite a music scene there during the tourist season, and I wandered over to the vacant venue. A poster left over from the previous summer featured "Kingfish". It took me a minute or so to kinda get over the semi-shock and then I immediately thought of you. Its a small world.

    ……? I chose that clip because the sound was better, more bass, overall warmth and less ambient room sound. Obviously Jimmy, you’re welcome to put any version you feel like. I can’t tell if you have a little passive aggressive thing going on in this thread or if I’m ‘reading the room’ wrong but often just after I post a clip you are on with another one in a short time and now this comment? Seems a bit funny in a non humorous way.

    I'm not meaning to be aggressive at all, I just prefer seeing more of the show than the short clip. I'll try to quit posting anything right after you.

    My apologies. Don’t worry about it, post whenever and whatever you want. I was going to delete that comment but it’s already gone to the keeper, so it’s me misreading the room. Carry on, lets keep it fun and I’ll keep it about the music.

    Hey, guys, how about some amazing flat-picking from Molly Tuttle and Tommy Emmanuel?

    ^Bach is Better! ( Had a T-shirt said that in the long ago)

    I attended a similar show in the fall, though with blues/ rocknroll/roots music.

    An art gallery showed many valuable guitars in cases, as shown in this video, and also on pedestals. Additionally, guitar art was shown, such as sculptures of players, paintings, an impressionist partial fretboard, etc.

    The live portion consisted of Jorma Kaukonen and G.E Smith playing duet. They played many of the guitars on display, providing a narrative for each. Electric and acoustic.

    Wine bar serving local wine before, during intermission, and after.

    In all, it was pretty wild. I enjoyed it.

    Thanks for posting this, Lupo.

    I have lost my Allen keys that came with my tele. There is little chance I have any laying around in my box of Allen keys that are that small. I need to go back to 9s or 10s. I went the Billy Gibbons and BB King route and changed to 8s. No change in tone but almost too slinky

    In Drop D. The song is full of great guitar. The solo starts at 2:20 and really propels the song. Give it a listen. Especially the second half, where the vocal harmony comes back.

    So this happened. Almost up and running.

    I'm wondering what to use to baffle the back wall of the cab. It only had half of the stuff in it when I took the old cab apart...kind of compressed hemp sheet, about an inch thick.

    Maybe Todd knows?

    Don't know. The cabinets I used were all plywood with nothing inside. I started with an original Ampeg B-15N and when the halls got up to the 2,000 seat range I switched to the Acoustic head and a Sunn folded horn cab with a curved plywood baffle in front and an 18" speaker inside which pointed up and toward the back (fantastic bass speaker). Back in those days you didn't dare mic the bass amp and run it through the PA system, so the amp really had to project.

    The cabinet that I built recently was based on the early Ampeg B-15 cabinets with a vented double baffle up front and was all 3/4" (or whatever the closest metric equivalent is) Baltic Birch plywood. It's heavy, but wonderful stuff to work with - super consistent, and very high quality.

    Hmm. Thanks for that info. The 126's definitely had a sheet of absorbing felt like stuff on the back of the cab, to beak up a standing wave of low / mid range frequencies. From what I've heard of running them with nothing in there..it's super low, and harsh mids that result. The low is desirable but comes with the harsh mids like it or not, and the only way to get rid of those mids is to staple in some absorption.

    I used the same ply as you.. 18mm birch ply, and yes, wonderful stuff.

    Somebody had a couple of them listed on eBay a few years ago, but they were pretty road-worn. Some of the rock guys would stack two of them, but I only used one. The 18" Cerwin-Vega speaker was originally built for simulating earthquake sounds in movie theaters. There are some interesting videos on YouTube showing people building folded horn woofers for their stereo systems.

    Also good for napping while the guys work out harmony parts.

    Thanks for the info Todd. I will investigate and learn.

    Great looking fretless by the way.

    That's my old Frankenstein Gibson. It started life as a single pickup 1969 EB0. Then I bought a nice hunk of walnut and had my local luthier remove the EB0 body and build me a walnut Les Paul body for it. Then I had him remove the fingerboard and replace it with an ebony fretless one. The original Gibson humbucker had really nice low end but tended to lack definition. It drove the recording engineers at Elektra nuts. Eventually I had a P-Bass pickup added under the hand rest and an independent second circuit added. After that, I ran it with two cords into two amp channels, with the Gibson humbucker furnishing the low end and the P-Bass pickup set bright and adding the percussion.

    This is what it sounded like with just the humbucker on a really early recording:



    Once the P-Bass pickup and stereo wiring was added I could dial in as much percussion as I wanted, and it could sound like this:

    I loved my old EBOS. Flat wound strings, and the double humbuckers were perfect for me.
    I thought about turning it fretless when I heard Jack Cassidy play the same bass but fretless once, but I didn't.... I wish I still had that old guitar....

    Took a better photo. I hated the last one. A new NuTube 50w @ 4ohm amp atop an older solid state 100w @ 4 ohm amp, both atop a 4x12 cabinet.

    The tiny amp sounds great, but it’s still a bit much for the house. I plan to build a 2x10 8ohm cabinet, to attenuate the volume a bit. The wee amp can drive 4, 8, or 16, but I think the 8ohm load with +- 25w will be the sweet spot for practicing, and for being able to crank the levels for the lovely sound. Not a lot of class and panache to my playing, after all.

    I may recover the 4x12 cabinet when I make a new one, just because the tolex is getting tired. Or, whatever it is. Generic tolex equivalent.

    Part of me really wants to cover them in tweed, because I’m an idiot.

    Anywho.
