I've never had to pay official child support, but at our house the support days are not likely to ever end completely. We no sooner get one "child" helped than another one needs us. No complaints, however. About the guitars--I don't have as many as you have--the first really good tech I knew disappeared. The owner of our local shop has done some good work for me, but I hate to impose on him too much, because it's not really his job. I don't know who to take things to, and I don't really trust myself, so lots of stuff just goes undone. Och tamale.
