This (very early) morning I watched another of PBS's "Jubilee" series from 2007. This one featured The Grascals, a six-piece bluegrass band playing in Owensboro, KY. The two singer-guitarists played Takamines.

They have a page on MySpace with some of their songs on it .... if anyone is into that sort of music here.

You can see some videos of them on YouTube, also. The Grascals website is here.

Was checking out some of their videos and found it interesting that the left handed player was using a right handed 360BG in some early videos. That must have taken some interesting reworking on the split bridge and nut. In later videos he's either playing a left handed 360BG or they moved the pick guard to below the sound hole on his original guitar. Also, there is a video showing the lady banjo picker, playing what looks like a 3rd 360BG!
