Michael followed that with two solo records, Joyfully: A Christmas Wish in 2003, and Private Stock Vol. 1 hitting the streets in 2004! They continue a steady schedule throughout their territory as CD sales and venue attendance grows at consistent rates.(

LOVE the stuff. Used it on one guitar to help stay in tune 'cuz I use the whammy bar a bit at times and now I use BB on ALL my guitars, electric and acoustic alike! They all stay in, not to mention come back in tune, indoors and outdoor shows. Not having to worry about that live and in the studio takes the worry out of the game so I can just play! Thank you Big Bends Nut Sauce!
