Thanks for the compliment...the rusty skeleton keys add to the worn-out look & they sound pretty good to!

Small world! We're celebrating our shop's 10th anniversary this year (2009). How long has your Ink City been around? I'd heard there was one in California somewhere but never could find any info on it. There are also two in Georgia (both unaffiliated with me or each other), and one in Ohio that I know of.

Arroyo Grande is Down South from y'all, and too the West. On the coast 'tween LA & Frisco. It's a hard place to live in, but somewone has to.

I do make it up to the Bay area on occation as my son lives there.

I have the tone plate demonstrated on the uke I recorded "Ridin' Down The Canyon" with. I have also tried a tone plate with a free floating central toungue that worked well.
By and large, though, I have not noticed a huge amount of difference with a tone plate, much more important is to have good resonance in your soundbooard and bracing.

hey thanks man, I appreciate your that...for some reason I've always sorta been insecure about my guitar playing. Cheers to you, LPR

Thanks for the comments Brian. Yes, Old Jack has been a favorite of mine for many years. The headstock is one I drew up quickly on the computer. Worked out pretty well. Thanks again.

Hey Brian...How are ya. The snake sounds pretty awesome, a bit quiet though, sneaky quiet, like something in the grass.

Thanks brian, I decided to put johnny cash pic up after i saw your profile pic. I think johnny's going to a new home for christmas, a colleague wants to buy him for her roommate. I saw another guitar online with that picture on it awhile back, forgot who built it, was that you? Joe
