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.

Thanks, Mike! In small town East Texas itís easy to forget about a lot of the craziness in the world right now. Iím sure they would love to have you!
