Well Matt ...... I have no clue. But like you I would be interested to know. Ask Fred Carpenter at the Nashville Violin Shop. He may know someone who knows....... R/
Kinda breaks my heart how Big TIge was sort of underappreciated in his later days. He and John Hartford were close.
While I don't know about his fiddle but only from picture, he was a big proponent of electrification. In fact he influenced me enough to add a pickup, and run through an amp. John Hartford heard him say, I'd wear electric shoes if it helped me to be heard.
