    Thanks, Scott! Truly wonderful to see these fine builders in their studios and the wonderful spirit they carry and impart in their mandolins. A real pleasure to see and read and watch and listen. Let's play music as soon as possible!

    Thanks for these. Glad to hear Dennis will be able to get his procedures done.

    I'm glad to hear that most of these folks are holding their own and hope that, when it's safe to do so, their shops will be filled with paying customers!

    Thanks for including these videos Scott. I was moved by Dennis' health concerns and as a Liver/Kidney transplant recipient myself, almost 9 years now, I would like to let him know that he can be assured that life is GREAT after a transplant. I had an auto-immune disease called PSC. Our thoughts & Prayers for Dennis! Also, I bought a Weber Yellowstone A HT from TMS back in 2015. It's a wonderful mandolin. Dennis takes care of his customers!

    FYI, not going to make big news of this but Dennis is no longer working while he's waiting for his transplant. Things seem to be moving fast on that front and they apparently need to, goes without saying.
