    Re: Interview with Tom Rozum

    Check out Tom's fantastic tri-tone solo 50 seconds in on this classic Laurie Lewis song I'm Gonna Be the Wind. She doesn’t get enough creds for her songwriting, so much energy here.

    Re: Adding or replacing binding?

    Forget that idea. It's impossible to do that without need for extensive finish touchup and that will never be invisible. You can have the whole instrument refinished but that would cost more than...
