Hey Gang,
I want to apologize to everybody for going dark the past few months. I had a perfect storm convergence of effed-up life events that would be too long to explain and would bore the shit out of everybody, but in summary it started with dysfunction on the part of local building department that mistakenly led to my home construction project getting red-tagged, and that turned onto a larger battle for me to maintain access to my shop and storage (and home). It's getting worked out, but still not resolved. On top of that my son had some complications from what was supposed to be minor surgery, and required not one but two additional surgeries. Then my own health came into play as I have an autoimmune disease that normally is manageable, but it started kicking up in the middle of everything, and I really was having a hard time just getting out of bed and hanging with life. Add in some political drama at my work, and it sorta broke me. I just had to go off the grid, didn't work on guitars, didn't even really play music or do much of anything except fight with the city, focus on my son and try to keep going one day at a time. I did think about you guys a lot, especially was worried that my absence sans communication would cause stress or disruption to this build, but hoping it wouldn't since I already sent the pup rings, and I figured the case and strap could wait until the end. But I still feel shitty about just leaving things hanging like that. Even more shitty because there was a new forum member wanting to buy some parts from me, and I totally left him hanging, which was uncool of me. I'll communicate with him directly.

I'm back. My son is all good, my shop and storage are accessible again, and I'm ready to get my life back. I actually jammed last night with some very old friends that I last played with 10 years ago, which was very therapeutic - even busted out my Lumie since it felt like something different was called for. Note to self: "Maybe I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney is more challenging to sing and play than expected, but hot damn, that mofo can write some songs!!

I promised a case and strap, and a case and strap will be shipped out to Bruce this week. I've got a case in good cosmetic condition except it smells like nicotine, so I expect that will be perfect for this build!

I've got a spare Baretta TRC, so I'll send one of those along in the case along with the strap if the TRC still is needed.

I've got a LOT of threads to read and catching up on the forum, looking forward to it and glad to be back.
Roller-coaster ride of life.
Every day is a blessing!

Duh, so I just read above that the TRC is covered, so I'll just send out the case and strap unless ya'll tell me a TRC still is needed.
