You will be sorely missed, Ship! For some time now you have been one of the few members who has a grasp on Washburn's historical workings, not to mention your knowledge regarding the older parlor guitars.

I wish you the best, buddy! Good luck (I had no idea you were experiencing multiple medical issues)!

Cheers to you, Ship!

Ship, sorry to hear about your failing health. I rarely participate in discussion but I rarely let a day go by without coming on site, I have to say that with the dwindling participation, I've always have read your comments. They were
helpful, informative and insightful in the history of Washburn guitars. I know your knowledge will be missed. I wish you good luck with the health problems and my prayers will be with you.  murph

Like Murph above, I don't say a lot here but check the forum pretty much every day for the last few years ... and have always found your contributions informative.

Fair winds, sailor.
