Measuring for a Schoonover Modular Spider w/Fishman Nashville Pickup

I also posted this on Resohangout, but I am including it here as well since not everyone frequents both sites.  

I am embarking on a road trip up to Portland, Oregon next week for a big trade show in my line of work, the nursery industry.

On the way up I am going to pay a visit to Todd Clinesmith who is  located a few hours south of Portland. Along with checking out a new design of an 8 string non-pedal steel  that is in the works of which I will likely be one of the first owners  (different than his Bigsby replica steels) I am going to drop off my 2004 Clinesmith resonator to have Todd go through it to make sure everything is up to snuff and he will be installing a Schoonover modular spider with the Fishman Nashville pickup.

Interview with Kent Schoonover/Schoonover Resonator Guitars

My latest blog post features an interview with resophonic guitar luthier Kent Schoonover. Check it out!

Looking to try out some various Reso's CA

So I've been playing reso guitar for about 10 years and have been working with a beater Mckenna almost nizagara the whole time. I'm looking to upgrade to a high end guitar but am leary to shell out 4k+ for a guitar I've never played. Choosing a builder from pictures and web content just seems silly to me.


What I'm looking for is a reso player in California, preferably so-cal but not absolutely necessary, that has a decent to large collection of high end reso's and would be willing to let me visit for a afternoon to check out your collection and hopefully get some insight into what prednisone some of the different builders have going on. 


Thanks in advance,
