I have one other video taken from the same show with me playing the Rayco Stage DeLuxe so I thought I'd throw it up here too. i've got some photos of the guitar (front and back) that I'll try to put up later.

Rayco Stage DeLuxe Acoustic Slide Guitar

Your browser is not able to display this multimedia content.

I'm playing a brand new Rayco Stage DeLuxe guitar. Adirondack Spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, beautiful flame sunburst. It's patterned somewhat after a 30s Gibson Hawaiian model, basically a dreadnought size body with a wide square neck, built to accept dobro gauge strings and stand up to high-bass G tuning.

It sounds fantastic, loud, incredible sustain, great when I tune it tight to G but even better when I lower it to D or D minor (as in the clip). It's a great alternative lap slide sound that is not like a Weissenborn. I can't say enough good things about it and hey, dobro players, you might NEED one of these to broaden your palette of slidey sounds. No one else is making a guitar like this.

Sooooo..... i just got my plane ticket earlier today, which means i will for sure be hanging out at Wintergrass! The Rayco boys will be there, so thats where i will be spending most of my time. The lineup is absolutely incredible. Stringdusters, and the Wilders seem to be the only bands (that i know of) representing the Reso world, but rest assured there will be plenty of slidey action at the Rayco booth. When i was there in '07 it was a most incredible weekend resophonically speaking. Im sure that '10 will not disappoint.

Oh and Rayco should have #200 up there, for those who really want to know what has me so excited that i could probably pee my pants at any moment.
