I never Cease to be Amazed, at your Ingenuity Bob.
Absolutely Brilliant Concept and Execution.
The Scope Could be Nearly Endless, of what you could Apply.
I love the effect on the Metal Foil, it has a Fantastic Patina, and your Choice of Composers/Performers, is Magnificent.
I have been "Off the Air" for quite a while, and it is Inspiring to catch up with your latest Inspiring Exploit.
Highest Accolades my Friend,
Brian.

Fantastic concept, Bob. "New and different," but text in metal has an "ancient and timeless" feel. Wonderful. What are you using to adhere the foil to your tubes? This is a fantastic process...got to try it!

When I first joined the forum and posted my guitars in the Other Things We Make section, I was asked a few times why I wanted to make pens when I could build guitars. Well these pens you've posted are the reason. There's an artistry there unlike anything I've seen in guitars, and it's inspiring.

Really great concept and execution.

Heartfelt thanks, Roger - keep up your own great work - many exciting parallels between marking time with music and marking space in the shop.

Gratefully, Bob
