Never know!

A while back a fellow came into my shop in WV while visiting his parents who live nearby. He purchased a Gourd Banjo and CB Fiddle, my two highest priced items, saying he was a musician and composer from California. I got nosy and looked him up. This is him!!

Lost two friends today within 24 hours. One was a well known rockabilly guitarist and bass player for Danny Gatton and the Fat Boys.  Billy Hancock used to come to my gigs and be real supportive of what I was playing.

The second friend was less well known but we played gigs together since we were teenagers. Here's to you Chuck B

I thought so too but, when I tried to send you a message you didn't appear in the list.  Anyway, I know you are a busy fella but let me know if you are interested in the Fade to Black tune.  AP says you are the perfect guy and he has plans for a video as well. I don't have any time table on it, just at your leisure if you are interested.

Well Jim,

Based on the number of variables involved I think I will forward your pricing info. I may try to do a fiddle build but would have to fine tune my skills before a sellable one is complete. My customer is looking for Christmas. What is your lead time and what info would you need?

Thanks,

Jeff
