A little guitar talk – you’re primarily a Washburn man, aren’t you?
Yeah, those guys have always treated me well and the guitars and mandolins take a beating. It’s a good relationship: they’ve never asked me to sign anything – everything we do is mutual agreement; mutual comfort level.
I always love hearing that; some companies make great stuff, but they’re not always easy to deal with.
Yeah, I’ve been with Washburn for a long time.
