    GoFundMe is working great. Just contributed as well. I hope Pete gets the Lentz of his dreams.

    Update: Lentz has received 1300 in cash sent directly to him, and 1600 from Gofundme. The total is now 2900! Great job to everyone who even thought to help. The goal for this guitar is 4000, so we are just 1100 short. Any contribution will help Pete get this guitar. Thanks again to anyone who has helped.

    I think we've added a hundred bucks or so to the last total.
    We are about 1000 bucks short now, so any small contribution will surely help And thanks to everyone that has contributed.

    hi guys! been busy over here, happy thanksgiving to all!

    last i spoke to the boys, they had received $1600 from me and i have another $100 to send them. i think scotty had said they took in $1150 from direct donations. fish seemed to think it was $1300, so ill double check everything there..as far as lentz goes, those dudes are going above and beyond for me and doing some really nice things, they are totally taking care of me...!

    not sure where they are on the build. im not worried, it will come alive exactly when its supposed to! i think about it at least 5 times a day. its going to be such a rad guitar and i cant wait to show it to you guys!!

    hope everyone has a great day today!

    The Thanksgiving Spirit got me as well. Looks like the GoFundMe is at $2,100, so we must be getting pretty close taking the direct donations into account.

    Pete, enjoy in good health!
