Where's Pogo Been??? Tweaking His Guitar and Banjo!!!

Posted by fiddlepogo on Tuesday, March 6, 2012

I'd gotten to a place where I'm mostly pretty happy with my main fiddle.

But I tried a really nice acoustic guitar I can't afford, and so I HAD to tweak my present one so I can be satisfied with it.

Then, I'd been thinking about making a new bridge for my banjo.  I found some beechwood kitchen utensils, and that's supposed to be good bridge material.  And it's been fun, and the banjo does sound MUCH better.

I used a bit of aluminum -foil under my guitar saddle to do the same thing... it was only a very slight buzz on the E string.
