  1. Paul is one of the nicest men I have ever had the pleasure to work with. It was about a million years ago but his brilliance and talent is only surpassed by his kindness and compassion. He built a beautiful guitar with help of many other talented techs and musicians. I wish him happiness always. Great memories of my R&R daze! Thanks Paul!
