    Re: We Lost John Prine.

    One of a kind. So sad. I'm just about wordless. He touched so many with his stories and humor. God speed!
  8. Re: Larry Campbell and John Prine ill with Covid 19

    Re: Tailpiece for Eastman 515

    Contact Eastman customer service. Couple of years ago I bought a used Eastman archtop guitar that had the pick guard in the case, but no bracket or screws. They sent me the missing pieces, no charge.
