Our new friend Gunnar ak Dragonslayer (see his posts for more info on Gunnar) will have a nice Recording King reso waiting for him in Texas when he gets to USA in February to take back to Mozambique. On the way to shipping the guitar the Christmas spirit was kicking in and I got an idea. I contacted Gunnar and he was agreeable so here it is. I had a Stevens steel I sent along, but he could use strings, hardshell case and anything else you might think of. Gunnar has a real musical talent and would put the items to good use. If you have any of these things you would be willing to donate shoot me an email and I will give you Gunnar's shipping address in Texas or if you live close to Waynesboro Va you can drop them off and I will ship them. Thanks for taking the time to consider this and Merry Christmas to everyone. Darrell

UPDATE-Got several nice bars, capo and a strap!!!

Darrell, thank you very much for helping Gunnar. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
I would add that those who play other instruments that Gunnar could probably use acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, fiddle and electric bass strings etc.
I have already mailed a new Tipton bar, a slotted bone nut, 3 sets of light gauge strings, banjo strings, tuner, extra batteries, flat picks, thumb picks and when I ordered the bone nut I talked Beard out of a set of reso strings for Gunnar. Beard sent a set of the new D’Addario reso strings.
I will try and give Matt a call at Blue Chip picks to ask for a donation I and will send to Darrell or Gunnar if successful. I have the Texas address also, in case you can’t get in touch with Darrell.
Thanks again Darrell!

Thanks Jan and a great idea about stuff for the other instruments he plays. Maybe we can send him back with all kinds of goodies. Gunnar said it is really hard to have stuff shipped to his mission country and it is expensive. I priced shipping the guitar to him where he lives and the shipping would have been more than the value of the guitar. Merry Christmas. Hope to see you at ResoGat next year. Darrell

God bless you guys. Last week I sent him a Rocky Mountain ceramic tone bar, so now he'll have 3 different types of bars to experiment with.

Darrell: did your Recording King have a strap button on it? I do happen to have a brand new reso guitar strap laying around that I could send.

Gunnar: if you read this, would you like some rosin for your fiddle? I could send that too.

Yes it has a standard strap button.  Gunnar is also aware of the posts being made.

Thanks everyone!
Luke, yes some extra rosin would be nice, I have one cake but rosin shatters easily so some extra would be appreciated

If anyone has a hard shell case you don't use lying around, I'll have to fly with the dobro, and would be super appreciative of some extra protection
Thanks

I’ve got a case that should fit. If someone can give me the bout sizes I’ll check to make sure it fits and get it on its way. I’ll need an address to send it to. I’ll throw some strings in. Sounds like you have about everything else

Thanks! Darrell will have to give you the bout sizes if he has them, and he sent you the address already. 

Thanks!

Yes we do, and thanks, Doc, for organizing all this. I'm a little late getting onto this. Is there anything else that might be needed?

Gunnar, can you think of anything else you could use? We have several steels, capo, strings, some instruction material and possibly a hard shell case if the guitar fits. I am getting measurements today. Did I miss anything?

Luke also sent a strap. 

I can't think of anything else I need, although, being new to the instrument I don't really know what else I might need. But y'all have pretty much sent everything I need, unless you have a jar of Jerry Douglas skill laying around.... but the skill part is something I'll have to take care of myself. 

Y'all are so very generous! Thanks for everything, I'm super excited to get my hands on it!

Gunnar, you don't need the jar of JD. We know you will be the next generation to carry on after Jerry. Merry Christmas.
