Is there anyone around town who wants to help with that , i assume there must be someone with an extra pack of strings , a bridge and more knowledge and carefull eye that me to do the job , it would be so awesome if anyone could lend a hand , ive been known to do terrible things to banjers when i try to tweek them :p

Its and old bottlecap that needs some adjustments it plays really stiff .

ummm setting it up aint as hard as some people might want you to believe. i tend to have my bridge about 1.75 inches from the end of the tail piece which juts out 1.75 inches. the diameter of my head is 10 in. it stays in tune just fine though my fancy geared 5th string helps with that.

I just got back to LA from the Bay - it was a very busy but happy trip. Went to Mt. Diablo, went to Berkeley and the City, even met up with @beyondthepaleogender! I did Craigslist rideshare both there and back, and both rides went fucking awesome :) Gonna post up for a bit and then I will (finally) begin hitchhiking east. Also - as of yesterday, I have been modding /r/Runaway for exactly a year now! :)
