Subject: RE: BS: Dreaming Never-Made Instruments
I'm not quite up to taking commissions yet, but thanks for the interest and I'll let you know. By law, South Carolina-made instruments may not be played in other states. Nobody seems to remember the original reason for this. I lived in Greenville for four years while I went to college, at Furman University, the Harvard of the South. That's a pretty heavily populated part of the state, and I didn't know many folks around. I did have to teach myself how to tone down my coastal SC accent so that I could be understood. I've been around these parts (mudcat) awhile now. I see I've gotten myself a reputation, at least with my spiritual twin, Spaw. I think I'll go home and mudgeon a cur this afternoon.

just this side of the edge, Chet
