Nice thing about guitars... while long fingers are desirable, they're not a requirement



....in fact, fingers, themselves, are not a requirement:

Ahhahah! [:D][:D] That's just awesome Rocket! You can even see the fingers in question heading too close to the blade. Don't know how you managed to capture the moment but that's a beautiful piece of revisionist history.

To be honest, I think that I will just avoid living in a van full of flammable stuff and candles [:D]

Today, I brought that old Washburn Parlor model to Dave's Guitar in LaCrosse Wisconsin. Todd, the on site luthier, looked it over and estimated that serious and proper repair would just about bring it up to book value. I gave $35 for it so I'm not out much anyway. I just gave it to them to repair, maybe use for teaching repair. No regrets; seemed like the right thing to do. If someone out there is interested in the guitar email todd@davesguitar and talk it over. Thanks everyone, I've enjoyed this. THE END
