Well, I am new to this site and this group. I can already see that there are some really talented builders/players here. Hope to meet some or all of you, I live in Dothan and I build things, guitars, dulcimers, etc.  Just finished my first CBG!  I will try soon to get a photo up on this site.  Thanks to all for your help and leadership.
