Guitars and guitar music as well as Bluegrass and many styles of music are really one of lifes great pleasures. The people that make the music make it a better life for everyone!
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
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)
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.

"Hello David, sorry for the late reply - I had not visited this site for years. Unfortunately, I do not have tabs for Man of Constant Sorrow - the video you saw was recorded by somebody who had requested me to teach them the song - I only played it…"
I saw a video in which Norman discussed why he preferred a certain fret when refretting one of his Martin's. I am about to refret my D-35 Martin, and I would like to know if anyone remembers a video in which Norman discusses his choice over the Frets Martin uses. Thank You.7See More
