Jim Bickerstaff
Jim is a sound engineer, mandolinist, luthier, and proprietor of Strings 'n Brass in Huntsville, Alabama. Once upon a time, Jim built this 5-string electric for Matt Mundy, who played with proto-jamrockers Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit. Matt used the instrument on the band's famous live album, and the rest, as they say, is history.
