    "Thanks for the info. I'll probably still get it so I have the complete James Paisible. Michael Hell is on FB and I think we are Friends. He doesn't post much anymore."

    "(LOL!) 'Stove pipe' tone holes are tone holes found in most factory-made instruments. They are simply drilled straight in, unlike undercut tone holes found on baroque originals and hand-made models where the tone hole has been cut out…"
