THIS ITEM IS SOLD.
I'm selling my spare Beard Adjustable No 14 Spider. The spider is in like new condition. I'll throw in the Jerry Douglas Fishman pickup that is mounted in it. The pickup works great on the top 5 strings but the 6th string signal is about 50% low. Take it away for $55 shipped in the continental US. I can do Paypal payment if you want to go that route. PM me or send an e-mail to johnowen57 at gmail.
I recently bought a new Wechter Scheerhorn R6524R and I have a Fishman Nashville PU and JD Aura on the way.
My thought is to install the pickup in the original spider. I've read the threads about the Beard adjustable spider and how it simplifies the PU installation, but would kike to know if there are any significant tone advantages over the original W/S spider.
Does anyone known if the W/S original cone is truly a quality Scheerhorn cone or if I should consideran upgrade while I have it apart? I have a recount Beard cone that I could drop in.
I am looking to buy a 1930's-era short spider for use with a Lug Cone. I will pay a reasonable price or possibly trade for some Quarterman cones. Email or call 740-591-2415 and leave message.
