These people influenced my early development and continue to do so; because what I learned though exposure to their work will always be a part of who I am.

Some of you may have heard of my company or myself. I'm not as famous as many of my contemporaries however; I've been a part of the Guitar/Bass manufacturing and repair industry for twenty-seven years. Because of this quiet presence, I'd like to treat my first column as an introduction and giving you a feel for how I think.
