I decided to have the Macassar one. If they let me win it. Not sure what I can do to influence them, other than being there at 3:00.

Default Kraus Guitars

That Macassar Ebony of Bill's is precious. Somehow as fate might have it, while talking with Stephen Kinnaird in the Artisans showroom the number called out over the PA was mine--I had to look at it several times, then have Stephen check. He said, "Yep, that's it, you had better get going!" Oh, BTW, I had just finished playing one of Stephen's small (00 size) guitar, which was a beauty!

Wow, congrats on winning the guitar! It was/is a beauty, and sounded great with Tim Farrell playing it.

Thanks Ken, I'm glad you won this guitar, it's nice to see it go to a guitar show veteran, seems like you got some good guitar show karma that came back to you.
