Always Insure

by Mary Weber on Apr-21-2017 at 12:24pm
Re-top on a 2012 Gallatin F that was damaged in shipping. Always a good idea to insure, even though it doesn't happen often.

Signed by Earl Scruggs. Cool.

When adjusting the rod the neck often makes snap, crackle and popping noises then you start to sweat while thinking, ‘what have I done!’. Some of this fear is generated by a few horror stories that make
