Thanks. I've done all the work on my own and half a dozen friends guitars for quite some time. I also have worked for the local shop on the side here and there, helping out a good friend who was one of two brothers who owned the store. About a month ago he lost the fight with west nile virus. So now instead of just working to fill in while he recovered, I work a lot more. It's a bittersweet pill I've taken. My friend Dave was a great guy and the family business includes his wife and one of his sons, along with his brother, who are all my friends too. Their loss effected the whole community as Dave was involved in so many local activities. So yeah I love working on guitars. But I miss my friend and now I sit at his bench and humbly try to do the best I can to do him justice. Carl.
