Next two out the door

Smith Special by TK Smith

Here’s a progress picture of the next two Specials. A sunburst ready for clear, that’s getting engraved hardware, and a black lacquered Special that’s waiting for gold hardware will be heading to France.


I’m about a month into making the transition from a flatpick to a thumbpick for Travis picking. Breaking thirty years of hybrid picking habits has been a challenge to say the least. I join the 55+ club in 7 months and hope to be a thumb picker when I get there. Haha I’m using a Fred Kelly Slick Pick with the tip sanded a little thinner, Thomastik JS-112s, CAR neck pickup and a Magnatone 213 with the vibrato on slightly.
