Dear friends, First of all, allow me to extend my most sincere gratitudes for all your encouraging support, priceless constructive criticism and the many many laughs. I have been thinking about this for a long time and I have decided to do what is in my heart, something that makes me truly happy. It's a very difficult decision, but I feel this is what I must do to be true to myself and my loved ones. I have decided to quit building basses to pursue a part time career as a chippendales dancer. I'm sure some of you will be shocked at this decision, but I feel truly alive when I am on the stage dancing almost buck naked in front of countless of drunken middle aged women with no name and no life. The tips are nice too, given my impeccable physique. Anyways, this is good bye for me! I will complete building the basses I have in progress for customers, everything else will be sold at a hefty discount (tools, wood, mid-hump license plate, etc). I bid you farewell and the best wishes from the bottom of my heart! Look out for my summer tour on your friendly neighborhood male stripper bar. Good day, sir. I SAID GOOD DAY!
