"....My friend and I have been building guitars in my high school woodworking class over the course of this school year. This will be the last order we place for this project, and I wanted to say that we have found your website, products, and customer service to be extremely useful. When my friend encountered some issues with bending the sides he purchased, he emailed your company to ask for advice, and, very quickly, received very helpful advice."
