Thanks Joe. Sorta caught me by surprise. Never been to a hospital before and figured my recent chest pains would eventually go away, like everything else before. Thanks to a smart wife and surgeon friend, they got me to the hospital before anything bad happened. Turned out I had 98% blockage in two arteries. Simple femural catheter procedure, inserted a couple of stents, and I'm good to go. I always thought I was made of Kryptonite.... turned out to be silly putty!
Thanks for your kind note. This hasn't change my plans to be at kamp. In fact, I think it'll be just the kind of good therapy that I need! See you then.
Hi Joe, my name is Scott Stephens with Custom Shop Guitars. Hank Harrison and George Chambers have both called me and recommended that I get in touch with you.
We have not opened our “brick and mortar” yet, but will be doing so soon. We will be carrying Collings instruments EXCLUSIVELY! Essentially, it will be a “Collings Store”. I am at Collings at least once a week (sometimes twice) to choose woods, go over orders, and to pick up instruments for my customers.
