CarterNut Guitars..what do you play? (227* d) RE: Guitars..what do you play? 25 Nov 98


Well, I play much of the Original Carter Family songs, using the technique created by Mother Maybelle Carter(The Carter Scratch). When I went shopping for a guitar I wanted one that would give the same basic sound as her 1929 Gibson L5 gave. I settled on a 1938 KG21 Gibson Kalamazoo label archtop. It has the same uniquely vibrant sound. I am very pleased with it. I have been given many compliments on its appearance and especially sound. I am always asked if Maybelle played one because of the likeness in the sound of the instrument and my successful manipulation of her immortal technique.
