I have changed the name on my page (formally Rob Ritchie) to our new "company name", Skinny Gumbo.  My buddy John and I have gotten a lot of local requests to make some builds for friends, family and friends of friends.  So if you see or hear of a Skinny Gumbo build, you probably saw it here first.  We don't claim to be the greatest.  We just enjoy hanging out together and building.  So any comments or constructive criticisms on our posts are welcome.  We are always looking on ways to improve our hobby.  Thanks and have a great one!  (This is not a sales pitch.  Just informative on why the name change to my friends of The Nation)

The more gumbo I eat, the farther from skinny I get. Other than that, cool "company" name.

Skinny Gumbo sounds cool!
Lot's of people use their "company" name on here: Maddog, Low Budget Luthier, Muddy Creek Guitars......
