Thanks David

I just wanted to share this e-mail from David...

Good morning Mike,

Received my Oliva 4 string. What a beauty! I can't say enough about it. But I will try.
Fit and finish are outstanding, that maple neck is absolutely gorgeous, slicker than a frogs ass and the finish is flawless. Beautiful fret work, nicely beveled and no sharp edges. Intonation was spot on right out of the box. Impressive! Sounds great! Thanks for the CD sampler too!
Thanks again Mike.

Building Cigar Box Guitars with Mike Snowden

This originally aired on Atlanta's PBS Station. We had a blast filming, building and playing cigar box guitars one afternoon in my shop in Marietta, Georgia. I always get a laugh when people in random places say "Hey man, I saw you on TV! You build those cigar box banjos don't you?" Enjoy!
