Heya Karl, I enjoyed all your videos! You were asking about my Thompson guitar - I really love it, I'm not sure how to compare this one with the one Robert Shafer has, I didn't get to play his hardly at all. Mine looks almost identical to Robin K's, except his is a "Thompson", where mine is a "Bob Thompson" (Bob's son made Robin's). They sound almost identical. I don't remember for sure, I think I gave $2600 for it. My only complaint at this point is the action is a tiny bit high up near the nut - I will probably make my own bone nut & saddle for it when I get the chance, and adjust the action a bit.

You gonna do Echoes this year? Barry already called and asked me to room with him - I won't know for sure til the end of this week if I can get that week off, but I'll probably go if I can. I might do Augusta, too, if I can afford it - Robin tells me you will be doing "official functions" there - cool!
