    I bought a Gibson from Dennis on Friday and got to briefly visit the new store. Nice place he's got there! Got to visit a little with him and really enjoyed it.

    Best wishes and outcome to Dennis. I am slowly recovering from a recent heart transplant. It's a rocky road so stay strong and positive and look forward to your future.

    Thanks for posting the talk. I was not aware Dennis had a health problem. I'm glad TMS is continuing to do well even with the pandemic going on. Good guys there.

    Good news is he's been approved for the double transplant as of a few day sago and they say it'll happen soon, as in before Summer is over, possibly sooner. Man is healthy as a horse otherwise.

    wow, I didn't know about the transplants. Makes me even more appreciative of the man. Thru the years, Dennis has always been a fair person to buy/trade with. There will definitely be many prayers sent for D.
    He just sent me this stellar oval hole, its wonderful,

    Are we allowed to know what's being transplanted, or is that too personal for the forum? Just curious. And caring about Dennis. Great guy.

    Sad to hear of the necessary procedure, but glad to hear that it has been approved and the prognosis is good. Have purchased several instruments from TMS over the years. Dennis is a good guy to deal with: honest, knowledgeable, willing to work with you.

    Dennis, all the best, and hoping all works out well.

    Dennis, all good thoughts and wishes for you! You told me years ago that I would be happy with either the Pava or the Weber, so I bought both and am still happy with both - and hopefully I will get to Nashville to visit you in person some day. Hope the surgery goes well and solves your health issues.

    Lot of changes since this published this date last year. I actually had travelled to Surprise, AZ to write about Dennis's need for a double transplant but he decided he didn't want to get the word out. A year later he's recovering from the transplant and the store is located just north of Nashville. Quite the changes!
