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!!

Thank you Donkey. Ian will hopefully let me know if they get used in any of his projects. It would sure be cool to hear them used as part of a film soundtrack!

Thanks Keith. I particularly dug him saying he likes instruments that are hand made and imperfect.
