Nehi, Thanks for sharing not only the details about the guitar but the story behind your choices. It is wonderful that you are able to memorialize your father with something that you will treasure and enjoy. I'm sure you will think of him every time you pick it up to play. I can sympathize with you. I lost my father to Alzheimer's just this past December. My mother passed away almost 20 years ago, so my wife and I were his primary care providers for the past 5 years of his struggle. I know what is involved both physically and emotionally. My dad struggled a lot and, in the end, his passing was peaceful and he almost seemed to be relieved that it was finally over. I'm not sure about the restrictions on "religious" postings, so suffice it to say that I am the "son of a preacher man" so he was looking forward to the next phase. If you feel the need to talk to somebody who shares your experience, please do not hesitate to email or PM me. Voodoo, you are correct sir. This group is more than just "blah, blah, blah... guitar talk". I really like the positive interaction here and already feel like I've increased my circle of friends - even though I've only been here less that 2 weeks. This post is getting a little long, so I'll close quickly with this. My Logan is on the local delivery route right now and should be delivered very soon. It's gonna be a short day at the office, for sure!
