    I see you are in WPB. Do you get over to Penny Lane in Ft. Lauderdale for some of their events?
    No I haven't been able to stop by Penny Lane yet

    About 5 months ago I was going with my wife to her doctors appointment in Ft Lauderdale, and we drove right by it, but didn't have time to stop.

    Can't wait to see the finished item.
    It shouldn't be too much longer. From what I understand, his builds only take a couple of weeks.

    It's worth getting on their mailing list for the performers that they bring in. I have seen Kimo Hussey, Sarah and Craig, Jim DeVille, Stu Fuks, and others there. The people are really easy to work with as well.

    Lenny
    This is coming along nicely ! The wood looks very unique!
    Fred told me he is using a larger pineapple body on yours ! It should give you even more volume than mine and Dave!
    By the look of it, you may have it in your hand by end of the month or sooner.
