    Congrats to everyone there! Well done!

    Shawn can correct me on this, but I believe the last accident at the factory was late Oct. 2015, when they let me slip into the vault and get on a tour.

    "The award was delivered by council members Alvin "Lefty" Jones, Tim "Niney" McCulloch, and Frank "One Eye" Burroughs..."

    It's always seemed safe when I was there.

    Would that be the "Django Reinhardt memorial hand safety prize"?

    All kidding aside, having worked most of my career with large scale factory automation, this is a big deal and definitely something to be proud of.

    It is fundamentally important things like this that carry over to the continued making of the best guitars and amplifiers on planet Earth.

    Fantastic, a good safety record is indicative of an engaged management team and an interdependent culture, very hard to do and harder to sustain, well done guys!

    Safety first. Always want employees to go home in the same condition that they arrived!
