Hey Stephen........I've been talking with Dave Skowron about picks. He's from Pittsfield.....small world. Anyway he got me onto this site here.....pretty neat stuff. Hope all things are well there. Shaun
Yeah...Dave is going to send one up for me to try. I'm looking for something new and better. The D-21.....news travels fast.
