Welcome new member Rob Mastrianni -  he's the guy playing that Jerry Jones Electric Sitar on youtube - normally, classified as a "sympathetic string" guitar, but, as you can see (in his video on our HG Group page), he is certainly plucking those suckers!
Welcome and thanks, Rob!

A huge thanks to Ben Elder for signing up for LIFE.

3 new members this week! 
Duane Noble (a past member actually) has signed up for life. 
Another Lifetime patron is Eugene Dilling of Charlotte, NC who (ages ago) was the lucky inheritor of a Dyer Style 8 (the 10th one known with a serial #.  And no, it's not for sale - I asked!).
And finally, Ed Dowling, who came to the Gathering joins us.  He was mighty inspired there and has ordered a Worland HG complete with supers.
Thank you, gentlemen!
