    Truss Rod - stupid question?

    What does it adjust? I know the neck angle, and by virtue action - but how much can a TR do vs a true neck reset? genuinely curious (as someone that’s very nervous about adjusting truss rods on great guitars)

    Real life funnies

    We have a rental property rented out to the forces, so not always occupied. Received a call a day or so ago (it’s in another town, not close by) that “um....there’s a crow in the house” so we get some one to swing by, and right enough, there’s a crow, perched on the TV looking out the window...

    Am I just being too hard?

    It’s only with a couple songs now I’m noticing and interesting that I do not have the same problem on gloss vs satin guitars - maybe just need some thinking

    Am I just being too hard?

    What frank said (see above) was that he was going through guitars so quickly he had to have a guitar he could pick up anywhere (he chose a Gibson hummingbird) rather than a bespoke guitar I’m not touring so maybe need to reign in my style !

    Am I just being too hard?

    Maybe that’s what this will be - I’ve been playing a lot of Frank Turner (heavy acoustic) if that’s any indication of what I’m playing - I’m also doing acoustic versions of NOFX....not my typical but what I’m jamming to right now!

    Am I just being too hard?

    Oxnard D40e. Noticing some pick scrapes on the soundboard / main body. it’s much lighter than any other guitar I’ve had. Sounds great but concerned it will become a trigger (Willie Nelson) before too long if I keep strumming the way I am - anyone else with an Oxnard facing the same?

    Sealing a rosewood fingerboard?

    @adorshki - the guild website definitely states raw linseed. I’ve seen so much conflicting information (or difference of opinion here and elsewhere). I’ve a friends father who swears to not use raw, guild say raw, others lemon oil (not actual lemon oil) or other fretboard specific blends. makes...

    What makes a good banjo?

    By “way different” - what would you say are the main differences? I’ve picked up a banjo or two at shops and never had time really dive in - obviously the feel, strings, size, tuning etc - but from a playing perspective - is the theory much different?

    What makes a good banjo?

    I think you read my mind - although I was humming and hawing as to whether a banjo or mandolin (consensus was mandolin is an easier transition) I just love the sound of the banjo! cant wait to see what Advice is shared!
