Well...The big Wintergrass Bluegrass festival is now in the history books.   We had a great time.  The Likes of Sam Bush & The Gibson Brothers Band, Prairie Flyer and other greats.  The Wilson School of Strings entertained us with a few shows.  Andrew and Deanna will be teaching a new year with the introduction and help of a new video teaching library.  Check it out at  www.wilsonschoolofstrings.com 
The music was great, the festival was family friendly, to watch the kids play and sing will just warm your heart.  As a bonus we got to hear a Jazz duet on the new Archtop & Dreadnaught.  They were great;  Thanks Ray, Thanks Peter.  The Givens Legacy mandolins are received so well everywhere we go.  I can't help but be very pleased.  It's like taking your children out and introducing them to the world.  They are boisterous but well behaved.  I find music to be another form of love.  That's all for now.  -Steve

Listen to a jam on 'Limehouse Blues' with Givens Legacy Dreadnaught Guitar and F-5 Mandolin

 

We are fresh from the National Oldtime Fiddlers Contest at Weiser, Idaho! The 60th Anniversary!

The spirit of the place and people was wonderful and the music phenomenal!  It's like Woodstock without rain and chaos (I'll be 60 this year).  The Wilson Family String Band is on the road with dates through christmas.  Brandon, their youngest son, took 3rd in the National Small Fry Division.  Traveling with the family are a rasel of Givens Legacy instruments.  The stage show sounds great.

New, out of the shop, are two A-4 mandolins....one is Bubble Maple with gold tuners at $2500, #144.  Number 143 is done in Curly Maple with nickel tuners and tailpeice at $2350.  Available also are two new Cutaway guitars.  One is a dreadnaught size and one is sized like an SB4000 with a 24.5 inch fret scale.  All the players seemed taken with the small one.  Unique to this guitar is a tonic tone unlike a Dreadnaught....which when picked or strummed is full of overtones along side the the tonic.  Tonic being the root pitch without overtone.  This is a great sound if you are fast player. 

The Dreadnaught Cutaway was nicknamed the Pool of Infinity at Weiser, now we just call it the Blue Ether " A long sustaining, brilliant guitar "

Baby, as we call the small body cutaway is currently in sale negotiations....This is a wonderful guitar with a clear tonic and lots of volume; Baby will hod its own with any Dreadnaught and then some.

At Weiser the Givens Legacys were played by dozens of pros and hundreds more pickers of all kinds and the feedback was delightful and to listen to a Jam circle full of the Legacy is a real treat to the ears.  Did you know when the music is made it never stops, its written in and on the universe.

 

Chow for now,  back to work
