_DSC0045.JPGFinally got to Art Lutherie 12 string I picked up with broken truss rod. Fairly easy to remove broken one. heated fret board and removed. Just waiting for new rod.
With my songs now on the radio from Radio Caroline in the UK to Chestnut Radio in New Jersey to Central Coast Live here in California it's a trip hearing my stuff on the radio. My goal for 2016 is to increase my original song library and produce a full CD, a search for musicians to help me produce it and then to actively promote it. Thanks to Gil Micheal and others for their encouragement and support. 2016 Looks like it should be great year!

I plan on going to several music stores and trying out a number of instruments and brands since no one retailer will have all brands on hand. I want to have some brands in mind so I can narrow the field…Continue

I've enjoyed working with wood ever since I took woodworking in High School. I've made a water pump lamp, end table, bookcase, hope chest and audio component cabinet through the years.
