    I went to Exp '13 and all I got was...

    A happy camper.



    The door to the magic room.


    Picking through some Blackwood, Ebony, Bubinga, Koa...


    Ohoooo, what's this?


    That's what she was looking for.


    Top or back, back or top?


    Back or top, top or back? Those sides over there aren't bad either.


    "Dad, those brush stroke birds are cool."


    One happy girl with Mike B., the nicest, most helpful and patient guy I've ever met. Despite several attemps to pull him away, he took his time with us, never rushing, and stayed focused on making sure she got everything she wanted in the specs. He really made the experience a very special memory for her. I know he and his team in Private Stock Acoustics will make her a very special guitar to go with it. Thanks Mike! (Magic room, hmmm, can we call him Magic Mike?) I also need to thank another nice guy, Jay from Xtreme Sales for getting us the appointment on short notice.

    (And who is that sitting in the chair reading a magazine?)


    She found something for me on the tables downstairs but it'll have to wait a little while.

    Awesome!
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Your daughter was a delight! A wonderful young lady. Mike will make sure her (well deserved) guitar is nothing short of perfection. Well done!
