Finally close to putting the finishing touches on the new look of the site. More importantly the information has been re-organized in to a more logical format. There will be more information re-organizing as we move forward but at a much slower pace than the last month.

Couple of things happening around here. First, added a new donation page with 4 donation options ($1, $5, $20, variable). Please donate, even the smallest amount helps.

Secondly, the NAMM 2004 winter show is going on right now and while I didn't attend this year I am hoping to get some news from Tokai Gakki on new products. Will definately keep you informed as news arrives.
