"Just heard your track and I have to say it was truly well performed, the guitar playing is spot on and the vocals are perfect. I'd love to play around with it on my cubase doing a bit of orchestration but the song is so touching.  Once I…"

"There was a upc code on the case itself and I scanned it with my phone. It came back the right model number that GC had listed for the case. Maybe they changed it a little at the factory."
