    Maybe I'm preachin' to the choir but that's how you get them to sing.

    Some exciting things are happening.

    It seems of friend John from Shen has been a busy boy. The elves at Upton bass after years of saying no thanks are carry :bag: ing Shen basses.

    Also Norton Customs has a brand new model Shen 90 and it has a spruce liminate top and blonde. They are also carring a Shen Willow.

    This all is exciting stuff.

    Please add other news to the Christmas thread.

    By the way in the Olde English the word "Merry" was translated as Happy and also mighty. So Robin Hood and his merry men might be translated Robin Hood and his mighty men.

    It's early to start be have yourself a MIGHTY CHRISTMAS.

  4. What, are you saying it couldn't be a natural high? Why assume everything has to be alcohol-induced?

    Actually, that seemed more pot-influenced, but since he's a dad I didn't want to get him in trouble with the law ;)

    ...if I offened you in any way guys. I was excited about the news I posted and maybe I nedded to mention something positive as opposed to Iraq and the goverment.

    I had thought that this little corner of the world was a more positive place.

    If you think that I'm a little weird, that's ok.....youre only visiting.....I live here.

    It also looks like Dominant strings and the RS pup will make great stocking stuffers!

    The new EA NM208 and the Focus IIIs should be here just in time for a ride down the chimney!

    I don't think anyone was offended (I wasn't). In fact, I think they're just playing with you.

    I agree, it sounded like they were making mighty.

    ...and this brings to mind why it is also "Hannukah time" in the city or just "holiday time." :)

    Well, I can't wait to get in the car and get to Upton so that I can play a Shen and an Upton side-by-side. Should be really interesting. Of course, I'll post my comments.

    I am anxiously awaiting some reviews! I'd really appreciate it. How timely for this to happen, as many have been discussing the SB100 and Hawkes. (Pics aren't on the site yet.)
