"Yes I do. The idea that something so unique could end up in a campfire is terrible. I will do my best. Should take the entire summer...and fall...and maybe winter."

"Lefty?? If you held the guitar the right handed way, the writing would be correct, not upside down, and seeing my friend's Spanish Jazz guitar last week the extended fretboard was closer to his lap(bottom)"
