    I have been trying to reach Bob hollihur at his contact email with no success. Is he still runing the site? Maybe cause of thanksgiving?

    I am looking for an endpin assambly, an adjustable bridge, a tailpiece string(chord), and some corelli 370M.

    The hole in my DB is 2.8cm(1.1 inch) so I need to check before I order.

    Thanx

    I am in madrid, spain. Europe.

    A tailpiece cord that is commonly used - Samson Amsteel 7/64" HMWPE Samthane gray 12-strand braided cord - sells for widely varying prices from $.22/foot to about $8/foot. It is often sold by marine outfitters. Do a Google search and you will find a number of suppliers. A carrick bend knot works well. Tie it a little short because it will stretch a bit as the knot tightens.

    I responded to every one of your emails. We were, like everyone else in the US, closed on Thanksgiving.

    Strange, I only received 2. One was without any text from you, the other was the very last one.

    Now I do receive your emails

    I had sent you 3 other emails from my hotmail acount.

    As I tell you in my last email, I will probably go with the spiros. I am going nuts over this string brand issue.

    cant wait to place my order. :hyper:
