    Should I win, this is the guitar I would want paired with the most glorious strap produced by Brad's capable hands:

    I was just wondering how much money we could raise here if I actually had the power to make one of you fellas well-hung in the more traditional sense of the term. A few of you will deny requiring any help LOL!

    I wouldn't mind going from "Averagely Hung" to being "Well-Hung!"

    I just saw this and sent Sabas some dough via PayPal. @nomadh I use only a certain type of strap, (Bonamassa, by Ernie Ball) so please do NOT enter me into the contest. Thanks to you and well hung for helping our brother out. Very nice gesture.

    PS..I urge all my AGF brother to do what you can to help this brother out. Reading the news, I can't begin to imagine how tough day to day life is over there right now. For the price of a Starbucks Latte, you can make a difference in one of our friend's life. If you can do more, I encourage it. Thanks for listening.

    Sabas, I hope things get better for you and Venezuela very soon. Keep your head up, friend.

    Thanks so much, John!

    I´ve shared this with some AGFers in PMs, and will share it here: There´s maybe a little light in the end of the tunnel. It´s kind of premature right now to be reasonably confident, but if things are done the right way, maybe the little light can become a great lightin´ fire. Let´s hope and pray so.

    Thanks again to you all, AGF friends. This will help complement my variable income. Althought we are not as bad as others -and we try to help how we can-, we´re of course affected by the situation and can´t say we are good for real, just a little less bad; watching every expense and strict and careful administration. That´s how we have managed to keep our nose above water line.

    But as I said countless times, things like this, and AGF life, really have a special meaning for me.

    Sabas.

    Ok, I haven't been on the forum much recently... Am I supposed to post a pic of a guitar that needs a strap?

    If you would like to make a $5 or more donation to Sabas, then yes.

    Sorry, Mossman, I must have missed that. I just went back and checked the "rules" and it doesn't appear that it's a requirement to donate and enter. However, if you are the winner, then it becomes a requirement?

    It's a requirement for those listed from the other thread to get credit in this contest. However it will need to be done for the winner. I think we would all like to see what each person is wanting to strap. You could change your mind if you win. Just an excuse for pix.

    Well, I'm going to disqualify myself from winning the prize... Looking around, I can't say I have a any shortage of straps, and I already have two Well-Hung straps (one of them won in a contest, and one given to me by @PsychoCid), so I'll let somebody else have a chance. I mainly just wanted to help a brother out.

    But in the interest of sharing guitar pron, here's a bass build I just recently finished (after six or so years since I started it!). I'll probably post a thread about it later...

    The finishing touch was another fine pickguard by our own @rmfroyd. For custom PGs, he can't be beat y'all.

    Wanted to say thanks again to @nomadh Damon, to @tvvoodoo Brad and to you all. Let´s see who ends well-hung.

    Sometimes I wrote PMs to some AGFers. This time I´ll just post a link to something I wrote and I invite you to read it if you want. Wrote it for you, but you are free to read it or not. It´s tittled Frankly speaking because I thought I´d write frankly. Thoughts that came to me a couple of nights before while trying to sleep.

    If you do it, you don´t need to reply or anything. If you want to, do it. I mean, you´re totally free. Tomorrow it´s a special day here. We will move again towards the change. But nothing is granted. Tomorrow and the days to come will tell.

    I do care for each one of you, my friends.
