    At 21:30 last night I finally completed the Jim Dandy I've been working on.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place, but the Jim Dandy says "Roots" on it, and I do as the Jim Dandy says.

    Gretsch Deltoluxe and Fishman Presys Blend piezo. Switch allow the Deltoluxe to be sent to one jack while the piezo is sent to the other (Dual amps) or so both can be selected or blended from one jack (One amp).

    She still needs a name, but I can't think of anything. Feel free to suggest.

    or, after the salad dressing: Green Goddess. :D
     
  3. How do you feel about “Kermit?”

    Very nice project, I like it :)
    Cute little "Sweet Avocandy"?
     
  7. I assume you’ve discarded “Roots” & “Root Doctor” right out of the gate.
    • Sweet Pea?
    • Stems & Seeds.
    • Wild Root.
    • Polk Salad Annie.
    Lessee. Greg Brown did Rooty Toot [Toot for the Moon]?
    In which he refers to the moon as made of green cheese, I believe.

    Time to stop free associations.

    I use some delta bluesman name. One of the noted but obscure players from that era. Nice job. My GinRicky is my most played guitar :)
