stupid keyboard - let me try that again...

Hi Chuck - I'm glad you enjoyed it.  I've been having a great time building and playing these little guys.  I saw your guitar you built, very cool.  I'm looking forward to meeting you at the show, there will be at least one other CBG builder there that I haven't met yet.
