    Congrats!

    My condolences to everyone who knew her. I've heard of her, but never had any interactions with her, not being a contributor to this topic.

    It looks like she is being sorely missed.

    Restringing can be risky if you hurry. I met a guitar picker (Pat Enwright) in Nashville who put his eye out like that. Take your time. If you need it for a gig, best to have a backup uke.
