When I visited Ron last week, I noticed on the board that #159 was not taken. Being the ultimate opportunist (and lightheaded from the Naptha fumes :p), I quickly asked if I could have that number. It won't get done any sooner, :(, but it'll be close in # to #147. I had specs in mind from my visit to the Yeti Cave last January (for the NAMM show), so I decided to dive into the pool...

I've got Artisan Deluxe #198. I am afraid to review my specs. I might change my mind again.

Only 13+ months to go. :)

Jamie, Still at it eh? I've only one PRS left... my '90 Studio. Sold most off to buy my Miata. I miss the old get together in the Spring.

Hope all is well with you. Haven't had any trouble with alth.foot since you gave me the adice.. and living in Florida ledgs to more sweat.

Bob!

Good to hear from you again! Yeah, still chasing guitars. Better than women, I guess... ;))

Down to one? At least you kept a good one!
