    Hi All! I just joined this group today. Been playing for 4-5 years (both mando and zouk), but am really bad. I'm self taught.

    Do you guys have a list of Iowa Luthiers? I'd be really curious to know who and how many builders their are in Iowa. I've looked online a bit, but have come up rather short.

    You are more than welcome to stop and see what I am working on. I am out on the road for my day job during the week, but I am home in the shop most weekends.
    This weekend I will be at Strawberry Point at the festival. You should take a little road trip and stop out.
    Give me a call and let me know when you are coming. 319-983-2175.
