Thank you, Kale. This old silverware box is comfortable to play too. Surprised me that even with an insanely thick top that it still has good acoustic tone and even jangles.

Thank you, Alan. This guitar is bulky but stays put on my lap. Many of my little cbg's seems I need a strap to keep 'em in place.

Thank you, Doug. I do like playing this guitar and am happy to have salvaged the neck and the tune.

Thank you, John. Very kind of you. I wasn't happy with the original lyrics from a few years back, then for some reason the other night I got some new ideas and I think they helped tie stuff together better for the story.

Thank you, Andries, John's guitar is quite impressive, always wondered if he built it?

I love that 12-string box. It sounds really smooth. Nice performance of this well-written original.
