... You'll get to it someday!

Now all I have to figure is which one... ;)

I'm a little worried if I ship my usual way, through the mail.  The Italian post office has a pretty bad reputation.

Yes, be careful! Several years ago, I ended up with a disgruntled ebay buyer (a pair of Levis...) in Italy. Turned out they were at the post office over there for almost a month.  >:(

Will do.  Not for nothing a lot of Ebayers refuse to ship to Italy!

Happy belated Birthday Carlo.  Yesterday was PETscan day for me so i was a little preoccupied.   

The fiver is really sweet with the pickup addition plus the neck pup is now a 63 versus the 66 that is now in the bridge.  I have always preferred the 63 and this verified that soundly  ???   for me.... The bridge pup gives it  some added clarity  and by itself has a very nice nasally tone.   This is my favorite 5 string as it just plays so easy and now sounds great.   

I just started co-hosting a semi monthly open mic night blues thing in my town.  Couple players were 5 string guys last time so i will have to bring the NR fiver for them to try out.  Hopefully it wget you some more business.

Thanks, Jim!  Hope everything went well yesterday.  Look forward to hearing some Fiver player's impressions to the NR.

Craig Pepe sent these pix.  Just finished the roughs on a 12 song project, all played with his '66 ThunderBucker equipped JAEbird.  No clips yet.




#0051 with a MAX pair goes out today, heading to Texas.  Matt supplied the DR strings 45-110.  I included a set of D'Addario XL 165, my standard JAEbird string, for him to try.


And last, certainly not least.  Status Buzzard, just purchased by Stoney Johnstone, will be making a visit to the swamp for  body repair where jack broke thru in a drunken mishap by the previous owner.  Also a repaint in red with gold hardware upgrade.  Looking forward to this one, all 26 frets of it!
