Dear UJ, I am a friend and neighbor of the late Dave Lynas, could you tell me where Dave would get his slim already fretted fretboards? I miss Dave so much, we would have coffee every morning. He would help me order whatever I needed. Could you help me with these frettboards that have the fretts already installed. Thanks UJ

Thank you uncle John, The more I read about Dave the more of an amazing person he seemed to be.

Its always been an ambition  to play an instrument but work got in the way, now retired having been working with wood part of my life I can build and learn to play something I have created, its certainly got a grip on me.

kind regards Chris.

Thanks for the invite Uncle John. I really don’t know what the heck I’m doing in this site - so un tech savvy. I tried to send you a message before but thought if I push “comment” it would then appear here. It didn’t. Maybe you already got my message (maybe more than once). Anyway I wanted to say Corsicana’s a cool enough place. I’m including links to Rope Walker Radio Show Corsicana episode if you’re interested. They’re kinda long (about 20 minutes) good music though.

Thanks for your comments John, I know what you mean about solids, planks of wood with strings, they'll all go quiet when we rely on wind power!
