"I was really into woodburning art for about 25 years, now I haven't done one at all in the last 12 years. Real nice work John, you should be proud. Wish you lived closer, I have so many cigar boxes that it's crazy, and I'm not going…"
"No Dan, I never saw that, interesting though. I wonder what I could put in another letter to them that would strike an interest with the editor enough that they would cover CBG's? I'm going to think about it some more (again)"

Hi Kevin thanks for the friends invite mate :) - glad the Bridge modification worked out for you - it's all a matter of ellimination - first things i always check are the nut and saddle then everything in between usuall it's just the smallest thing you overlook
anyway i'm always glad to help out if and when i can , thats the best thing about the CBG scene we all help each other out unlike most regular guitar forums that just try and outdo each other
