Chris Lyons commented on Andries D. EKER's blog post String Talk !
"I honestly like Swampwitch strings and Ernie Ball. If you hold a Swampy string up to plenty of other strings, there are a lot more winds on the Swampy. I like Ernie Ball because the quality is right around The Swampys but price and ease of obtaining…"

My No. 1

"For the first 9 months I had this, I kid you not, I spent all my free time trying to get it to stay in tune under the most ridiculously hard whammy bar use. After 9 months finally got it to stay in tune and the first time I did a bend it went right…"

I got a kick out of your comment about the big boys not commenting on any of your stuff  I have the same problem and started to only comment on other members that do so for me  I used to say something about most things posted but stopped out of frustration  Most members only want to be stroked about their own stuff  Good luck with the builds

Hey Chris, I understand your frustration, but I'm not sure the status feature is the best way to communicate here.  They get bumped pretty quick.  Discussions, videos and even the blogs might be a better alternative if you're looking to get more views and interest in what you're doing.  This is one of the most welcoming places around, hate to see you get discouraged because your message is getting lost in the shuffle

Hey Chris.,.,I used to sell most of my boxes on Ebay.,but there I have to compete against "weeklyhouse" and that sets the high end at $65 for a fretted box.I used to sell fretless for $35, now I'm up to $40..,lately I sell to coworkers for $40 for a fretted box,, and every sale generates a new build request.,.,getting ready to up the coworker price to $50 though,.last month I sold 4 fretted boxes to my son in law for $35 each to be given as gifts.,.I know most folks want $200 a build, but I'm not there yet.,.I could build 5 $40 boxes faster than one $200 box.,.rock on., and I hope to buy one of your builds at some point.,.,very open to trades as well.,., I have 3 fretless on ebay right now.,.,talk to you soon, and thanks.,.,.,Jerry
