and I know Terry Atkins (head luthier for Washbutt) hes another Chattanooga boy...he doesn't tap tune anything.
Big thanks. So since I can't buy in bulk is there any way to check for this stuff? Obviously I can see the grain in pics but as far as the other things? I'm in Tampa so no clue if a lumber yard carrying this stuff would be common.
So any chance of getting to chat with Terry?
