What about the elusive Kala concert resonator? Any chance it'll poke it's shiny cone from the foliage?

It responce to a bunch of post.. Yes! YES!! YES!!! and 38's are awesome-confirmation from a proud concert owner :) Kala's reso has been a mystery as I've been waiting for a while and hope they come soon but until then Goldtone's brass body come late spring is sweeeeet!
It's 82F in Atlanta and the BBQ starts @ 5:00 PM !

Mainland Osage Orange? I hadn't heard about those yet, that's big news. Those trees grow around here, we used to call them hedge apples and knock around those big, hard ugly fruits with a bat (when weren't throwing them at each other.)

You probably know that Osage has been used in bow making. Hopefully they will be in late summer :)
