      Whats that top one? I’ve not seen anything like that – the bottom one looks kinda Shubb hybrid.


      Lots o’ SCGC guitars! But never ask which is my fav

      No real clue.

      The top one is labelled LENO on the face.  It’s brass and well-made.

      The bottom one was made in Japan and looks indeed like the same type of mechanism as a Shubb, but less sophisticated.

      I’ve been playing the Leno on my Arrow G5 for a couple of nights.  It’s pretty cool.  Playing G scales 2 frets up imparts a lovely bell-like tone.  My mando likes it!

      They’re something that I came across as a stroke of luck, and figured Daniel would make better use of them than I would.  The LENO is apparently some sort of legendary bluegrass cap that is said to work with either mandolin or thin-neck banjo, and has a wicked cool clasp to hold the bar down, and all the padding so you don’t ding the neck.

      The other one is just….neat. It can put a lot of clamping force on the neck for sure.

      Glad you like them!
