For those in the Ville Platte area, or those of you lucky enough to be going to the Balfa camp, Cecil at Floyd's record shop has a Bb he just finished. It is for sale and he is letting folks test drive it. I played it a little Saturday. First time I ever heard one, what a cool sound. It is quilted maple that has a glazing of dark stain over the sealed wood, which leaves it with dark highlighted grain and light colored wood.
You plannin' on coming in for the Festival at the park?? If so, gimme a holler. If not, next time you come in for the weekend, we should meet up. Maybe jam a little. Cecil called me to go check out that Bb day before yesterday. Looking forward to pullin' on it.
Maz! The brand is "Swallow" made by Cecil at Floyd's Record Shop in Ville Platte. I'd call or email the shop to find out more... or we can wait for someone to chime in who owns one -- like Joey Guillory.
