Yeah, I have been busy but I've only shown about ten percent of it on here.  Mostly I'm doing everything but cigar boxes.  They're just too damn small to give any acoustic volume....which seems to be what I'm after these days!  Been on a guitar buying rampage lately.  A 1965 all mahogany Harmony, '69 Hagstrom, '60s Kay six string and an old Harmony Rocket.  Building my own boxes, hammering some resonators and learning how to bend wood.  Planning on building bigger acoustic bodies in a cool new shape I designed too.  This full time employment sure gets in the way!  

How are you feeling these days?  Are you back at the house building yet?

Greet the family for us!   JP

Damn boy!  I just visited your page to see if you've been doing anything lately and I see that big scar picture!!!!  Holy shit!  Are you OK now?  Looks like a pretty serious surgery.  Cindy, my wife is in charge of the OR at the hospital where we both work. 

Sure hope you are doing fine.....thinking about you and sending positive vibes your way man!!!

I hope you get better, too, Mike! Sending prayers your way.

Yo Mike!  I put my comment in on the contest entry thread but it got placed at the end, separated from your entry.  I think I'll try again.

At 7:19pm on December 18, 2011, JP Swenson said…

Yup, turned out OK.  Gonna load up some picks right now. 

Well if ya already got your bass tuners, then I'll just have to go with misc. shop treasures!

Happy Merry and a Christmas New Year to you and yours too!

Yo Mike!  I ordered some bass tuners this morning.  Will send you two, plus some other goodies once the tuners arrive here. 

Started building my first hard case today.   Made it big enough to hold two CBGs plus necessary gear...amp, slides, harmonicas, etc.  Hope it's not too heavy when it's all loaded.  Also made a couple stubby copper pipe slides today that look like they're gonna work real nice. 

Catch ya later, Swamp Possum!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude, the only two bass tuners I've ever owned I got from UJ and just used them in the Behemoth.  I'll scour the shop and send you a selection of treasures for Christmas though!  Can't wait!!

At 2:36pm on December 11, 2011, JP Swenson said…

I was just being a smart ass....but if you're in a trading mood, I do have some bits and pieces I could send your way! 

At 9:09pm on December 10, 2011, JP Swenson said…

Hi Mike!  Merry Christmas and all that stuff!   I came to see if you had any new stuff on your page and noticed your offer to Kevins discussion.  Hey, you can send one of your pup to me too!!!!!!!!!!

I recorded my first song this morning.  It's an old Hank Williams song.  If you have time how about checking it out............

Just finished building a baritone tonight I'll take some shots of it and load up too.

Catch ya later dude.  Say hi to the wife for me!
