    I posted this over on the UMGF. I thought I'd share it here for anyone interested.

    Great idea - that guitar and the price you got it for make it the perfect candidate for a re-top. Keep us posted.

    It really was perfect timing all around. I have a great relationship with Ken, and this "donor" guitar had some issues, allowing me to get it for a song. It's getting a shade-top too. Ken is spraying it as we speak.

    Ken will turn it into a monster, I'm betting.

    I don't know about the rest of y'all, but I live through George's GAS journey vicariously! Love it!!
