Tad! Dude. This is Chuck,
I just got done with an hour intense session on the new guitar… It’s a race car man!!! I think I about got her figured out, ha ha… Ah man, I, there’s not enough ways to say how fantastic this thing is! I just had to call you up. I was going to send you an email, but ah no, I got to call him and tell him. I hope you can hear the excitement in my voice; this thing is just un-believable man! Anyhow, have a great day. I had to let you know. It’s opened up even more, it’s wonderful.
