    Nice! I live right down the street from Jammin Java. I’ll likely be there, just have to sort logistics with the wife...

    Do what I did - tell the missus she's going and you've already bought her ticket. ;)

    P.S. Actually, I asked her first but the initial response was fun to type. :eek:

    Hehehe... it's more like conferring with her schedule. However, my plan just got obliterated due to work obligations on Thursday. Sorry we couldn't catch up!

    Hey everybody. Just tried to call Daniel Carbone at Arlington Fretworks and got the message that he’s closed until further notice due to illness. Anybody know what’s up? He’s a really great guy!

    I am devastated, absolutely devastated, by this news. I considered Daniel a good friend. He was the only guy I let touch my guitars. He would let me sit in his workshop and would adjust every nook and cranny until it was perfect, laughing at my ability to tell the difference between a 1mm adjustment or microfrequency. He was friendly, gregarious, intelligent, fair and giving of his time and talents. I must have been to his place 20 times. We went to a concert together, and he supported my band. He was a true friend.

    I had no idea he was even sick. I know that he had some orthopedic issues but the last we talked he had been walking, playing golf, and gardening frequently. We hadn't talked much this year but I was planning on making a trip to see him in the spring with a load of guitars and an afternoon of spirited conversation and laughing. Also to taste his patent pending "super water" that he mixed in his kitchen, lol.

    I am heartbroken I did not get the chance to say goodbye or to pay my respects at his memorial. I wish him peace and comfort where ever he is now, and his talent and presence will be missed tremendously.

    I'm sorry to be the bringer of bad news. I never knew him but from all the kind words I've heard about him, I wish I had.

    I had only just met him and been to his shop twice, but this news really saddened me when I found out last week. He was such a genuine individual ... you don't run into someone like that every day. The first time I called him up it was to assemble a partscaster that has become my main guitar. The finished product is impeccable, and I was quick to drop off another guitar for work as a follow up.

    I continue to think about his friends and family during this tough time, especially his son. I'm younger, but we both became dads around the same age and his passing has really resonated with me for that reason.

    Daniel was a true craftsman. He had a method to his madness, but you could never deny his talent.
