The long and short of it: I built a Mulecaster for Jason Momoa and flew to Bamburgh castle in the UK to deliver it where they were filming season 3 of his show Frontier.
As a trade I got to dress up like a red coat and run around the castle and beach firing rifles, carrying torches, causing mayhem. In one scene I find him hiding on the beach and he knifes me in the skull.
He was awesome. Professional and thoughtful, and it was a heck of a fun time.

How does the yummy fiesta red Mulecaster I posted a couple days ago sound ? Well like @joeylandreth ‘s. Your mileage may vary because hes’s well… ya know. Airy, alive -steel plus flatwounds equal a new sound you can feel. I’ve heard it on a couple recordings and it really occupies its own sonic space- there’s a texture to it that makes you think “wait… what is that?” Doesn’t everyone secretly wish they were a pedal steel player? The Three lever Hipshot is intuitive when played in open D. It lets you get notes and inflection you couldn’t otherwise get while playing slide. It’s not a gimmicky thing and its not hard to get your mind around. #thenewsoundofsteel #k-radchristmasspectacular
