Sunflow'rs waitin' for the sunshine
Violets just waitin' for dew
Bees just waitin' for honey
And, honey, -- I'm just waitin' for you.

Many sleepless nights due to excitement on the way me thinks. That is a feeling I'm dreaming of. Have fun with the process, waiting for each stage to be completed. Then the god awful wait as it leaves the myamoe workshop and makes it way to you. Can't wait to see pictures once it's done

Oh yay! That website log is so cool! I'm waiting for a custom too, and it's an exciting, nerve wracking time. Please let us know when it arrives and post lots of pictures! I like the specs for yours.

Thanks.

My dad had a bunch of the Luke the Drifter 78s that we listened to growing up. They were real gems.

Ray, it looks sweet as heck! I own a sinker redwood on walnut MP Custom and I can vouch for its beauty and sound. Yours should be similar. Mya moe is magical. Cheers!

What a day. UPS normally delivers to my school 2 or 3 times, but not yesterday. I waited for an hour and a half after school and finally called them and requested that it not be delivered. I did not want it sitting unattended on the floor of the front office all weekend long. The woman took my phone # and said I would be getting a confirmation call from the distribution center within the hour. Needless to say no called was made. When I got home I called and found out that they delivered it an hour after I requested that they not deliver it. Way to go UPS. I drove back down to school in the hopes that I could find one of our night custodians in the front of the building. I knocked on doors and rang door bells for 15 minutes or so. FINALLY I saw someone moving around in the Front Office. A substitute custodian let me in to get the package. Here are some picks (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.519209531423768.124962.100000041780487&type=1&l=84bd6ec090). This walnut is unreal! The pictures do not do it justice, but I'm pretty happy about the shots I was able to get of it.
I'll get a video up some time soon.
