Welcome Preston. Looks like you got a bunch of sweet 'girls' in the picture.:-) What do you have, if you don't mind elaborating. Thanks.

Preston, a voice from your past -I lived in Sherman and played music with Joe Hoch. I have #4 made in October 1982. I will get a good picture and post it. Unfortunately, it spends too much time in its case as I have become addicted to the mandolin

Preston, sorry for the late response, I have my flatpicking emails filtered. Is it too late?

Hey Preston - remember I bought one of your intruments back around 1985 when I was living in OK - it is still going strong - at one point it was in its case for about 16 months; I took it out and it was in perfect tune - great guitar (I have jealous friends)

Preston - are all your guitars numbered? Mine has a five digit number written on the bottom left of the label inside, but that is all I see....

Hey Preston,
I just returned from Kaufman's Acoustic camp and thought I'd let you know my Thompson Guitar was the center of attention once again. This guitar gets noticed wherever I go. Lot's of great guitarist have asked to play it once they hear it. Just thought I'd give you a bright spot to your day. Thanks for a great guitar. Uwe Kruger even pointed out the top was Austrian Spruce. I didn't know you could tell that at a glance like he did. That guy is extremely knowledgeable on guitars. It took about 30 minutes to get it back from him once he started playing it. Great tone at any volume. Thanks once again for a great guitar. Mike Pullen

Hey Preston - another blast from the past here. San Antonio. What was the name of our band again and who was the banjo player...? I'm guessing you don't get on this much but drop me a line. Still playing: http://www.borderblasters.com Still have my Thompson OM, it's a gem.
