    Re: Is this how it starts?

    That's pretty funny :)



    Don't think I need to indulge in any modifications. A couple more string changes, and I should have it down to a science (I hope!). Next time I'll try using a piece of...

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    Re: Is this how it starts?

    I got the SOL out the other day, because I felt it needed some attention and didn't want it to "fall asleep" ;) . I'd decided to change the strings, and I spent over an hour fiddling around with the...

    Re: Silverangel custom green 2-point

    Very unique and beautiful. I like the color and the thornbush motif. It reminds me of something the prince could have used to charm his way through the thicket to reach the enchanted princess :cool:
