Hey,Soulcatcher et al.  I like your playin' man! From your playing style I can tell you are going to LOVE your on-order Lowebow. Had mine a couple of weeks, now.  It has totally replaced my 4-string by Fuzzy.  :-)   (We need to start a Lowebow group.  I  know of 5 and there must be more.)  Regards!
