Default Good days and better days

Sometimes you have good days and sometimes you have even better days. A week or so ago I had a good day when I sold the slope shouldered dreadnought on the left to someone on the west coast. This morning I received a note from him…

“My guitar came today at dinner time. The best way I can express our feelings on seeing and hearing it is to order another. Can you take the ‘for sale’ sign off the birdseye single 0 guitar and send it to us in BC. I am so impressed by the craftsmanship of your guitar…Thanks again.”

So today I’m having an even better day as I prep the single 0 on the right for a trip to its new west coast home.

What nice feedback to receive, congrats !
It can be a difficult decision for folks to take a chance on a guitar that’s doesn’t sport the usual names on the headstock.

Well done, Andy.

A dread and single O, now you need to build a baritone and send that customer some photos!

That could make a good addition to the "Guitars" page on your website . I think every guitar player should have a baritone, I really enjoy mine.
