Bob's OM on the Road!

Just back from "guitar camp", where Bob took delivery of his new walnut OM, and we both tried to learn how better to play the guitar. The seminar was hosted by Mark Hanson, and also featured Doug Smith and Pat Donohue as fellow teachers. Simply fantastic guitar playing all week.
It was fun to get Bob's guitar into the hands of these fine professionals, and get positive feedback.
Here's a pic of Mark putting the OM through some amazing paces:

It would be fun to say here's photographic proof that Mark Hanson plays Kinnaird guitars, but then we just might hear from his legal department. Let's say that Mark enjoyed playing Bob's guitar, and in his hands it sounded wonderful.
