Dazz a purty one! Love the black with pearl inlay -- NICE choice. Man, Jude knows how to build 'em. BTW, I've recently picked up Jude's CD (the one on which he sings La Valse de Pecanaire) and have been playing it on my radio show. His family throws in some fabulous harmonies on it. He sings, he plays, he builds. I gotta meet this guy!
Thanks much for the thought guys. We have had incredible luck in finding a great bass player navy guy from Opalousas stationed in Hawaii. He grew up on Zydeco. It's a real struggle finding musicians who have a clue outside Louisiana. Thanks again for the interest.
