Does he wear a Mitt when he's not in public? Is that how he got his nickname?


Yes and it's filled with the souls of the people he destroyed as a corporate raider.

Mitt registered himself as a dealer in order to avoid the sales tax.

I've done a little accounting, and I think I'll be able to fit one of my homebrew preamps and an undersaddle pickup into the budget. The catch is I built the preamp a couple of years ago. Can I use it, or would that be starting early?

I would say it is no different than buyng a preamp or using kerfed liners that you batched last year. Then again, I don't get a vote. . .

I say use it , but thats just me . Like Bryan said , if you bought it you would have no control over when it was built .
