Hey Shawn !  I didn't forget about ya' buddy just been busy with...and ...

I'd like to have you over some time after the holidays or whenever..., so's you can check out potential parts for steam-punk CBG's. I've been a junkaholic my whole life which means there's gobs of unique difficult to find crap in my drawers. Oh man, that didn't sound good. Uhm, let's just say I've got a LOT of stuff. Maybe we could work out a barter or somethin'...?

Have a Great Christmas my friend, take care. - wally

Hey Shawn, It was real nice to meet you in person also. Nice of you to haul all of those cool guitars to show us. That's some mighty substantial bracin' on that body, I'll be interested to see how you attach the neck. I'll have to look thru my parts bins, maybe I'll take some photos and send 'em to ya'. Then it's only a matter of trying to convince this junk-a-holic to part with some. ha-ha-ha. Ya' know, I thought I was going to have to move a year ago so I sold most of my stationary wood n' metal working machinery,(which I'm now replacing) at the same time I scrapped that's right, I said scrapped, about 300lbs. of copper n' brass stuff. I kept the gears tho', I just gave away a bunch of gears to my nephew who's makin' robots out of them...dang-it. Okay, I'm outa' here, I'll get back with ya' on this subject. Take care man.

howdy shawn,just stopped by to tell you that the center piece on the zino tri-can resonator is from scotland,a friend there mailed a few cbg related items to me and this was in the package,if i were to guess i would say that it must have been on an old clock face.it is the right size and shape to ornament a vintage clock with.take care shawn,nice work with the steampunk builds man.

Hey Shawn- i think your contraption on the SteamPunk page is one of the coolest looking guitars i've ever seen!
