Thanks Owlcat.

Thanks Michael Milland. I too have been dealing with the Fret for several years and agree with EVERYTHING you said about them. They're probably busy with other things, and Dave doesn't always check email...or phone messages if things are snap, crackling and popping in the store which they usually are. I also don't have a burning in my gut that I have to drop everything and rush over there to see/play it.

Brother Fielding has been to the store today and has played and critiqued the said instrument in question, and just left me a phone message saying he has some definite opinions on it....so I am awaiting a call back from him. The one thing he conspicuously did NOT mention in his message to me, was that I should BUY THIS INSTRUMENT NOW. I trust Rick's judgement on these matters over and above my own....so I'll wait to hear his assessment of it.

Thanks again to all who responded to this post. (Actually got more responses than I would have expected, since it was neither a lyric or BS thread.    8-)
