Re: Hawaiian Conservatory of Music (reply)
You might offer it in UMGF Buy & Sell section. The Steel Gtr Forum and Taropatch.net have for sale sections too; the viewers there might have more appreciation of the described material than typical UMGF'rs would.

Re: Flattops for slide? (reply)

My first preference when playing my squareneck resonator is to play while standing. This gives me the most flexibility in moving/repositioning the instrument. Next would be sitting with the instrument on my lap. Still some flexibility...
