Just spotted your H44. I managed to bag a mint reissue on Ebay. It's a beautiful little guitar - sustains for a week. You're gonna enjoy that little beauty when you've rebuilt it.

Thankyou kindly Richard!....:-)such kind made me laugh to read that cause i was sitting here lamenting my blog, 2 posts in two years,,HA.....I've no time for the network factor,....all i can do to keep up with youtube, and this site, that's it!;-) AND make music in between....most days find me almost too busy to do that, but I manage to play a little, everyday, even if only a strum or is my "even keel"..had a run in with a rattler and there is a song in that as well as all the campaign ballyhoo.......hehehe,
..I work with a friend in France we bake up songs that can be heard at channel user Francifornia at YT as well, if you have time to check that, a diff sound....I act as lyricist and singer, not player..which is fun. my puter bit the dust Saturday, I'm hoping I did not lose lyrics, my bro is trying to pump life back into it, and thereby rescue it a bit...are you in the high desert in WA? loved seeing the rolling brown hills as a kid.. lived in Salem Or for awhile, on my G'folks cherry farm..Bliss for a kid...!!.again--many thanks--kind words come along like yours and i remember my ditties bring a smile not just to me, and THAT is what I set out to do when I share em, more often than not..
