My friend and esteemed colleague,
Jeff Bollbach and I inspect a
bass way past its prime

On my recent trip to New Mexico, Dan Hachez and I spent a few quality hours together talking bass, wood, and tools. Dan is a truly talented and gracious person. His new shop is phenomenal, and Dan is blessed to be working full-time making beautiful instruments.
