Hi Andries. Good parts hunting bro. Your new build looks great. That big slotted head has the look of guitars from the 20s. Perfect for a resonator. Today I’ll cut my new neck into the big Cheroots box. It’s coming together.

Hello again Andries. A bear hit me and messed up my wheels. I got it sort of repaired. Lights and lenses back in order. The body remains crumpled. That stays. I’m into it for about 400$. I bet the bear hurts worse than me. I hope he’s ok actually. He was quite large. 300 lbs. or so. He ran off after he took on my Chevy. Watch out for bears Andries. Mess you up.

Hi Andries, it’s the season of building for me. No contest here. With the garden and sauna recording studio closing for the cold season, I’m just bustling about. I love to make these things. It’s entertainment to me. I have a huge 250 cigar size Cheroots box to make a bass cello with. It might be good. Happy November Andries. I’ll turn 75 by Thanksgiving. :^)

Nice art Andries. I like that one better. It’s one bad hair day after another with me...

At 11:48am on October 28, 2019, Dave Lynas said…

I do like Andries. Looks just like me. And you have made it in my opinion. And I count you as a true friend. Thanks bud.

At 9:35am on October 28, 2019, Dave Lynas said…

Hi Andries. I opened my YouTube feed today and was pleased to see you were a featured video on the main page for your most recent video. You were there with the best music on eEarth along with Blackberry Smoke, Willy Nelson, Meryl Haggard, etc.  big smile Andries!

At 6:09am on October 26, 2019, Dave Lynas said…

Hi Andries. Yes it does have a space mellow vibe like the cello bass. A good contrasting element. Very nice discovery my friend. Bone Yard Good!

No it’s a desert with Coconut & Pandan leaves, quite tasty? Pandan grows & is widely used in Philippines, it also has health benefits? Cheers :)
