I couldn't have said it better myself! I'm so glad that you decided to take the plunge and be the second student builder with Steve and Ryan. Reading through your day 1 recap brought a lot of memories back to my time there-mostly good with a healthy dose of PTSD!

I won't spoil the rest of your story to be told but you have chosen some amazing woods and are off to the races on what will be a great sounding OM!
Hey Vasu! I canít thank you enough for DMíing me and encouraging me to contact Steve. This has truly been the opportunity of a lifetime. I canít wait to meet up and play our student builds together and compare notes in a few months.

Thanks for stopping by, Ben! That was actually just 1 dayís work. Ryan is pretty good at whip-cracking and keeping Steve and me on task.

Thanks, Cigarfan! I saw some pics of your commission this week and ďspectacularĒ doesnít begin to describe it.

This is going to be the birthday you always remember. And what a souvenir you will have!!!

Plus Steve and Ryan are such nice folks. I really enjoyed meeting them at B.I.G.

Be careful, this could be addictive

Hey Paul! You came up in conversation a number of times this week (always good, of course). Steve and Ryan are both stellar guys and youíre right, this IS addictive.
