I may not get a chance to post a picture, but rest assured, it can't be seen.

Frank is the co-founder of Gryphon Strings and the owner of the frets.com website. Mention his name to most any contemporary luthier and you will likely get a nice lttle ramble about how they met Frank and his wisdom. I've never met Frank, but I'll bet he would love being compared to Michael Jordan!

He checks into AGF regularly, especially this section.

Also, Rod, it's a very easy fix and easily reversible... Put on the label and see what you think!

Ps: I once asked Dana Bourgeois a fairly convoluted question about strings and string tension on my guitar. He looked slightly annoyed, but shared this bit of wisdom, "Why don't you experiment and see how it sounds?" Great advice!
