Thank you, Rob. You, too. I mostly like making them. When I play it's usually a little baritone that's got a Spruce top, Rock Maple sides and back, a Maple neck and Sapele fretboard. The Rock Maple was a bitch to bend (I do it by hand over a heated cast iron pipe), but it has a really bright tone. I'm curing an all-Koa instrument now. Very excited about that one. Take care! Larry
