    yes, he means photo. It's spelled different other places.

    That's a nice looking mando. Sorry I can't help you with your question. Others may.

    Georgous finish. Beautiful work!
    OK, how do we pronounce "Prucha"? Is the "u" long, as in "prudence"?
    While we're at it; how do we pronounce Lebeda, Houlebek, and Capek?

    Thumbs up

    It looks great! The right pronuouncation of the name(if it is from Czech origin) is "Proocha" - the "ch" is the same like greek letter X(chi not "eks") or like the J in the spanish (Juanitos, etc..)

    No, it is more similar to letter "h", like in world hand, but it isn't exact.. the similitude to the pronouncion a spanish letter "J" is exact..
