    I had a Weber Custom Vintage A with the 'old wood'. Loved it, sold it, wish I hadn't, to be honest. I really should have kept it.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Mike. Looks like it's only the Engelmann they are closing out on. Good to know.

    Re: Virzi tone producer

    Mike Black puts them in. He built a piccolo mandolin with one for me and it is the most amazing tiny mandolin imaginable. You can't believe the richness of the sound. Can't say it's because of the...

    I hope Skye will also take pictures of some of the more 'unconventional' hair-dos and outfits. It seems like half the fun of NAMM would be the crowd itself.
