Happy Birthday, Scott.
Count me in, thanks.

Our prayers and thoughts are with you.

I cannot say enough good things about Will's mandolins. I am thoroughly enjoying #107, a red spruce/sugar maple fern F model.
Keep it up, Will!

Sometimes when I play, my right hand picking doesn't hit the strings as smoothly as I would like. #He...
