    Yes, I still play tenors. Lately, I've been trialing out mostly baritones. I'm pretty happy with the tenors I have.

    Sounds like you have a great trip planned.

    Simon, Thank you for sharing your build. The bear claw figure, and the paua purfling and rosette are stunning. Bear claw spruce sounds as good as it looks, too.
