Ken, good to "see" you again. Paul is correct. When in doubt, remove the conjunction and one of the names and say the sentence:

"This is typical work for Dale."

"This is typical work for me."


It wouldn't sound right if it were "This is typical work for I."

Oh, and it's "you're" butchering and "King's" English, etc.

Damned editors!

Paul w,I just saw an opportunity to bust your chops,keep up the good work on the "Newbies",a lot of fun to watch.I wish Dale was back in the swing of things so we could enjoy his work also,you both do amazing work!

Its coming along slowly but surely Dale has the color on,assembly and a couple nick knacks and it will be done,I will have Dave P,post more pics when its done,as hes been kind enough to do so thus far.

Paul B,I should know better then correct anyones grammar with you in the house, keep the work on the book coming,it will be a great success.

Deffer,you cant go wrong with either Paul or Dale there the best,if you dont mind the cost in shipping from the UK.

Deffer, I'm sorry, but my e-mails to you keep bouncing back. What could be the problem?

Ken,
I had the pleasure to see and hold the bass while I visted Dale to have him restore my '66 4005OS.
The finish on that bass is so beautiful. It caught my eye when I saw it in the painting booth. Truly a beautiful bass and can't wait to see it when fully completed.
Oh, and the neck action is so fast and very thin.
I saw some of Dales other projects and must say he is truly an amazing luthier.

You can't go wrong with Dale F and Paul W. Great Rickenbacker masters of restoration.

Thanks for the update Edgar,the pics he sent last week looked great,its a hard color to photograph,I bet it looks that much better in person.

With both of these guys putting checkerboard binding on,making the crushed pearl inlays,making 50's anodized pickguards and bridge covers.....its truly amazing!!!
