    Re: dents in the neck

    Yeah HoGo, I was thinking that if the steam couldn't get into the wood then you couldn't get the expansion you're looking for. I'm thinking that the solution would be lightly spraying and sanding the...

    Great tune and yes, that boy has some real mitts on him - like Jimi, and this fella from Macon. Best thing is they all know just what to do with 'em!

    No, I did not know that. At no cost to the recipient? You'd be talking some serious insurance, etc. I would think. Shipping? I don't think anyone would trust the common carriers with 100k worth of...

    I owned an F model for a while, then upgraded due to the dreaded MAS. Certainly worth a look in the 1 - 1.5k price range IMO.

    Re: Elbow or wrist...

    I'd say it's elbow AND wrist. What emphasis, when, why, how?

    Yep, no stockholders. But plenty of (some would say way too many) regulatory agencies. Thank goodness for us, the consumer, the ultimate overlord.
