    I just had one of the coolest conversations I have had in a long time and the pride that I feel right now is awesome.

    It is amazing what you learn on facebook.I was chatting with John Mann about PRS guitar bridges and it turns out that he ownes one of the first pre factory(handbuilt) Paul Reed Smith guitars.It was made for him in 1979 and John was there that summer when I worked with Paul and he actually remembered me.This is one of the guitars I sanded and it is a piece of PRS history.Thank you John Mann for sharing this with me.

    Every time I see this I do a check of what I might be able to get rid of to swing it...not that I need it, but everybody needs a bit of awesome in their life.
