Elegance

If you think quality and craftsmanship are dead, and you think that design is a lost art, look at these two working pieces of equipment from Shubb. They are both accessories for playing Dobro. Santa's bringing me the capo (I already have the slide). If you think the slide looks nice, you should heft it and position it in your hand. Ooooh, makes me all goose-bumpy.

The slide looks like it would feel as great as it looks. I probably couldn't really appreciate it because I've never played a stringed instrument. I've admired hand-made zithers and dulcimers I've seen in shops in North Georgia, though.
