Jack Stoner's Copedents

Jack Stoner (
Kansas City, MO

I am a weekend musician (currently working with the Gifford Bros. Band in the Kansas City Area) and have been playing steel since 1969. Prior to the steel, I played lead guitar and some bass. My day job is LAN/WAN Network Manager for the Social Security Admin.

I play a Franklin D-10 with the original Bill Lawrence humbucking pickups. I mainly play through a Peavey Session 500 amp, and sometimes use a ProfexII as an effects unit.

My copedent is as follows and is not too unusual except for the 7th string pull (F# to G) on the E9th neck and lowering the 2nd string (E to Eb) on the C6th.
