About 1 1/2 yrs ago Mr. Key asked me to remove some rather large limbs from his roof that had fallen from his poplar tree.

Hi Gary. Thanks for what you did for Dan Not a problem, bud. Part of Dans legacy was his generosity to others.I have two of his guitars already.Glad to be passing along oneof Dans axes.This was his prototype Lap steel.They are the gift that keeps on giving.I have very ,very fortunate to have received more than a few guitar gifts from others.So I am glad to complete the circle of giving.Peace .I'll get er out hopefully early next week.

 I reckon it's great,  I'm very much in favour of rule number one, there are no rules. and that's where the creativity starts happening.  I find I am constantly scanning for potential guitar bits where ever I go and what ever I do..... I hope nobody finds a cure for that.  :o)
