      Oh man, please don't tempt me like that, lol. I just sold one of my favorites because I needed the cash infusion......Thanks for checking with me though.
      But...just so I can see....do you have any pics? ......NO, I cannot allow myself to see! I've wanted to try a short scale for awhile, especially the Birdsong's.
