Awesome advice Greg, just a slight raising of the nut and we're in Metallicaville. Thanks, guys! Cheers, Scott, The Kudos go to Emmett for designing an instrument that can be so easily and effectively adjusted. If you think about it, a 36" scale Stick with a nicely playable X fret has almost 4...

They have always been a bit quieter, and it's always kind of bugged me. In particular, my Low 'E' on my low 'E' bass string (I'm tuned in mirrored 4ths) on my grand doesn't want to sound out too much; any ideas?

Hi, A Stick playing friend/student here in South Australia is looking for a Stickup. He owns an AC-2 equipped Stick, but the cost of shipping back and forth to the US for retrofit is prohibitively high, plus the instrument is Rosewood, which I've heard requires special certification these days (mor...

Welcome to the forum, I was teaching a guitar player at the University of Virginia before they got a Stick in the department for students to use.

Got home after a 15-hour drive Monk-Time ("Round Midnight"). Such a great event. Many thanks to Glenn for putting it all together again do deftly, and to the support crew at Interlochen, for attending to our every need. For the first time, I offered classes in approaches to playing written...

Sounds great, Rodrigo! Very "bright" and lively, and I really like your ornamentation in your approach. I've been playing this piece without any ornamentation, focusing on using the dynamics The Stick allows instead. Maybe I'll record it one of these days... There's a really interesting ar...
