James,

 Want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Yes, we all need to get together again soon. I'm hoping I can find a bit of singing voice again.

My best,

Jack

Hello James, I was wondering if you may have information on the Ashborn Brass Guitar tuners?  I have a couple of his guitars.

Thanks Pamela

SO great meeting you ... Those tuners are really great and your guitar looks so much like my old one I am very impressed.. I freind of mine has a #1 like mine but with the friction pegs .. We have to do a clip on that guitar .. My father in law was Don Warnock who made Viola De Gambas here in New england .. That was a shop you would loved to have seen !! All the best , Guy
