"I know my proxy bid at 8:05 was $214 and was outbid with 5 minutes to go. I was on the highway and pulled over on an off ramp and could not get logged in in time to get it bought. That sucked!!! I was having  GAS looking forward to an old Gull."

"The 1.72 is what I love about it. I have short stubby fingers so the 1.8 didn't feel quite right and I don't play a ton of fingerstyle. The acoustic I was playing on was a 1.68, so the 1.72 gives me just enough room where I can fit these…"
