We took the original G-29 (now the SlimPicker) and redesigned it with a longer and wider body (the same body size as the D-33 Grand Strumstick). This increasing its length to 31 inches but with the same string length as the G-29. The result is the G-31 Super G, with an amazing increase in sound; loud, clear and bright, with greater fullness and delicacy than the G-29. We will have pictures and recordings of it up soon. Spruce is the standard wood for soundboards for Guitar, Violin, Piano, and more, and makes a great sounding Strumstick. There is a high visual contrast between the white Spruce top and the red Padouk neck and sides, and you see white/red/white looking from the side.

"I bought a D strumstick a year ago and I’ve had so much fun with it.I love music and singing but had always been frustrated in playing any instrument until I got my stick.Now I can play “Old McDonald” as well as songs by Coldplay and just have the time of my life!Some people pay shrinks a lot of money for therapy but this does the trick for me.I can feel blue, overworked, tired, sad, even happy or any range of human emotions but my stick always sets me right.A few strums on the twangy thang and everything’s alright.Thank you for coming up with what I call my “joy stick.”
The Strumstick is designed for non-players, and is delightfully easy to learn. The Strumstick was created by Bob McNally (designer of the Martin Backpacker Guitar) and has a perfect blend of ease and versatility. The D-33 Strumstick (tuned DAD) is our most popular model. Besides being a foolproof instrument for beginners it is also an inspiring and creative tool for professional musicians (on stage and in the studio). Plays in numerous keys (by capo use or retuning) but is ridiculously easy for non players. Full instructions, chords and songs included. Handmade in USA, of all solid woods. The Strumstick is also available in key of G.
