    As I sit here watching the smoke from the wildfires upwind of me, and see the wind getting stronger, I think of what I need to take with me if I should have to flee.
    In no particular order: my wife, the dogs, my F4, the family Bible, the photo albums, and the hard disk with my computer backup.
    Ha, ha! keep time: how sour sweet music is,
    When time is broke and no proportion kept!
    --William Shakespeare

    Prayers for your safety and that you won't find it necessary to flee.

    Image in 5 is a hybrid an F5 neck on an oval hole F body ... because the bridge is shifted closer to the sound hole ,
    with the neck being 12th fret out , on the neck, not over the body..

    compare with 20 & earlier.. F4 by Gibson ..
    writing about music
    is like dancing,
    about architecture

    Max Girouard makes a beautiful F4 !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !
