Just an after-thought - and apologies if it is there and I missed it - but would Ned consider placing the link on the TokaiRegistry page which lists reviews, ads and other sources of information?

Iain,

My books arrived today. What a superb job! The Blurb production and quality are excellent but your layout and editing have made the book what it is. Many, many congratulations and thanks f ...

Let's see what others think. I don't really mind. If it says, UK, Germany etc that would certainly be more intersting than just "Basingstoke, Liverpool etc"

Hi Iain,

I have no objection to adding the location but I don't really see the value either. I'll go with the flow but personal choice would be to omit it.

Hi Iain,

It would be great to see this come to life. The original draft looked fantastic. A couple of thoughts about the gaps...

Is it worth deciding what you want in there and then maybe targ ...

Hi Iain,

I've just spotted a typo. Towards the end of the book (pp 48-49) there is a black LE which you credit as being mine. Sadly its not. Must be someone elses.

Overall, I think the book l ...

Iain,
Similarly, I have a Metallic Red Springy ST60 with rosewood board which I could provide pics of if that helps fill any gap.

That's frustrating news, although I'm sad for Mike's loss. I tend to agree with Iain; in my mind the book was always about the guitars, not the forum but having such a major contributor withdraw is a ...

I emailed Iain last week and he is back on the case following his holidays. I think he is chasing folks for outstanding photographs.

Hi Iain,

Given that this is something of a unique project, I'd be happy to pay the extra, providing we maximise the new limit to its full with, as you say, some additional guitars of interest (of w ...

Hi Iain,

I think the more detailed version works. It is only one additional photo per page and isn't too crowded.

You could always vary page layout for different guitars / pages so that the o ...

Fantastic! I've also seen a few of the photo pages - here and a draft of one of my Springy Sounds - and they look great

I'll email Iain the final version of the article later today (allowing ...

there were also some ST-70 Springy's, maple capped maple boards with no skunk stripe, and slab board rosewood.
