Welcome Skip Sail,

I am pleased that your CE Special has arrived. I hope that you find it as nice an instrument as I find mine. It just "feels" right somehow. I love those wood hoop Specials!

 Have fun on here, have a good look around and post comments etc. Let me know if you would like to add any content to our MUSIC LIBRARY. It would be gratefully received.

Ian, thereallyniceman

Hi Skip. You've really picked up on the fine quality of Consalvi's work and rightly noticed how superior it is to his successor's. Your WL7 is in good hands at last.
