Talked to Rod the other day. He's neck deep in a big project for his day job and trying to get his new place settled by night. See: burning candle at both ends. :)

I'm sure he'll resurface soon.

thanks for checking - I appreciate it 8-)

I've been averaging 75 hour work weeks for my day-job since mid-May, and I somehow managed to get my shop moved to a new facility in the evenings and what little time I had on the weekends (yes - the shop is all set-up and has even been ever so slightly used this past week!!) I'm working a project wrap-up with a key customer this week, was on-site for project kick-offs at two key customers the previous two weeks, bounced thru Amsterdam, Paris, Montreal, Detroit, Wichita, and Memphis the first part of June, and did a trip out to Philly and Savannah just before that.

I am sooooooooo looking forward to hitting the shop this weekend for my first full day of working on basses in what seems like eternity. I have 10 customer builds running at the moment, and it's absolutely killing me that I have no way to work on them without fear of trashing a build (or doing myself physical harm with a tool) in my tiredness

you should see some lefty build action images posting up next week. I'm really looking forward to putting the final touches on the Axiom 4 and VRB5 fretless (that their owners have been ever so patiently waiting for)

all the best,

R

Would that Axiom be natural finish? :)

And is that VRB5 fretless also a natural finish by any chance? :)

Rod is riding in his own personal Tour De France marathon.

Be sure to take a day or two off to REGENERATE before you attempt to injure yourself with those power tools.

today is the first official day that the shop is up and running. 8-)

I'm taking a 1-1/2 week absence from my day-job at the end of Aug so I can get caught-up on all the builds that were stalled during the shop relocation. completed basses begin shipping the first part of Sept as they are completed in order of deposit

all the best,

R

YEA - my unending summer travel marathon has finally come to and end!!! After more than 59,000 "butt-in-seat" miles (all domestic US with one r/t exception) since the last week of May, I am finally finished with my day-job 'roadshow tour'! I am soo looking forward to working from the home office these coming weeks where I can make my way out to the shop immediately after work :D

I anticipated a month of delay to move the shop. I did NOT anticipate that taking a new day-job position would be so overloading and require such an extrodinary amount of business travel. Ugh - I am now quite behind on several builds and will be catching-up in the coming couple of weeks. Worst part of all this is that I usually learned on a Friday morning that I'd be on the road for two additional weeks beginning that Sun AM ... this after being assured that the mission was completed and that I could plan to work from home the following week or two

That's now in the rear view mirror 8-) time to get a fingerboard epoxied ;)

all the best,

R
