    "For those of discerning taste in the Deep South :)"

    Hello, my name's Andy and I'm in Athens.
    Maybe we can pool some knowledge on the good players, builders, and techs around. The "off the radar" or well known.

    If anyone needs tube amp repair in Athens, I can recommend an excellent tech.

    See ya!

    *ps. I grew up in Colorado, but have lived in GA about 13 years. Hence the stupid name :)*

    Paul, I do remember discussing your Georgia roots.

    I live in Lee County GA, near Albany. Grew up in Warner Robins/Macon.

    Well, I kinda lied. I'm north of Atlanta in Cartersville. That's just gotta be the best feeling in the world: building a guitar. Wish I had invested the time when I was younger to see if I had the talent. Very cool!

    We should plan a get-together in 2014 in the middle of the state. Maybe invite a few drummers and bassists, and have a shake & howdy AND some good picking too.
