    Shelby American on Netflix

    Anybody else watch the Carroll Shelby Documentary "Shelby American" on Netflix? I thought it was really good. They didn't really talk at all about the 427 S/C roadster, just the 289 and GT 40. Below is a pic of the Factory 5 replica I used to have. If you look closely you can see ol' Shel's...

    Tamarind - anybody ever use it?

    Yesterday I saw some very beautiful pieces of tamarind wood, which I thought would make a very nice fret board. It is very dense, heavy and is hard as a rock (Janka puts it at 2690 on the hardness scale). Information indicates it can be hard on cutting edges. So, has anybody used it? Mark
