This sad news was in my email this morning regarding the health of Blues great, Robin Rogers. Robin is always very nice to me and always willing to sign guitars or pose for pictures.

Happy Birthday Shane.
I love your work. I'm too broke and too cheap to buy, but I sure enjoy looking.

Shane, I hate to put you out, so I can try to fix it. I will most definately need your help though! Tony.
P.S. Did you get your payment from paypal?

Shane, Yes it is present at all levels. If I touch the output jack or the tone or volume controls it cancels out, but not when I touch the strings.
Thanks, Tony
