I have only a few items to offer. I'll be out of town from 6/4 to 6/11, and will try to check email. So If I don't respond, I will when I return.

Here are the items:
I recently had the pleasure of taking a voicing an acoustic guitar class with Kent Everett. This class was video taped and will be offered as a DVD later in the year. In the meantime we have 2 tops that were voiced by Kent, and ready to be put on a guitar or used as a reference for what a top should sound like. These are the actual tops that were used in the DVD. With these tops in hand while watching the DVD, not only will you get to see your top voiced, but you can hear it. It will make much more sense because you will have it in hand to reference while watching.

These tops are now being offered for sale for $175.00 each plus shipping. They were entirely braced and voiced by the man himself, Kent Everett. There is a dred size which is 30 year old Sitka with some nice color and some bearclaw figure(DRED IS SOLD TO JOHN L.), also the Dreadnaught sitka- voiced to bring out more trebles which often
> are lost in a larger guitar(More Info from Kent - "The tap tone is vibrant and crisp which
will keep it friom being a "dead-naught"..."
) A Sitka OM top(SOLD TO JOE V). All tops have rosettes installed and 4 inch soudholes. The bridge patches are Brazilian rosewood. The radius is 30 feet and the scale length is 25.4
These tops are ready to be used on a guitar (except for a very small amount of 220 grit cleanup) They will make a great sounding guitar. Or you could keep them around the shop for future reference and comparison when bracing and voicing your own tops.

By the way, these tops were originally being sold for $235

2. Brace Maker Jig for 15' & 25' Radius - $40. This is a prototype that we made for LMI. It has LMII engraved on the back. --SOLD to GregH

Pics coming soon.

Sanford,
This was an extra prototype that I had laying around and that is why it is discounted. I'd be willing to go $49 + $7 shipping on a Brace Maker. You order dishes @ 15' & 25' by the way. Let me know if you want one and I'll invoice you via paypal. Thanks!
