Try the phone. Emails can get lost in the fog of junk mail. Or ignored.

Miss the days when Shane ran that place. Maybe they will get more responsive soon. I finally had to go somewhere else. I really liked that Lutz!!

Edit: what I meant was, I loved Lutz, still do, been using Sitka. If I buy Lutz, it'll be from HMT. I'm hoping owners get more responsive. That is all. Cause I'm gonna be needing some soon. :)

Who has Lutz besides HMT? I noticed Stewmac does but I wouldn't say they are known for their tonewood?

Small business and not always in the office. The wood is worth any hassles.

I just received an auto reply and it seems that they are closed down until the first week of March. If I get an actual update from Leanne I will post it here.

Thanks
Shane

I dealt with LeAnne once and she was very responsive, professional and nice.

The wood was excellent and she threw in a few lower grade tops as a bonus!
