Because our plant CEO decided the plant will be open. Just because…See More

Thanks for your comment on my lap steel guitar. The color is Sea Side Blue. Tried to get that 50`s look.

glad you were able to make the club meet today, everyone enjoyed your new guitar. Spoke with Russ this evening and he said he really enjoyed playing guitars with you and Clark. Hope your schedule works out next month.

Hey Rat, if you have a cordlees drill would you mind bringing it to the fest to use in building the kit guitars. Need #1 and#2 phillips bits if you have those as well. Be great if you can help with this. Oh yeah don't forget to charge the batteries the nite before.

Thanks Gary
