 Dear Yasu Kamiya

 Thank you very much for the Canopus YL-6s
steel guitar. It's a very beautiful instrument and
the tone is great,
I like the weight and play-ability.
It's very comfortable on my lap and the stand
is good, too.
You are the #1 steel guitar maker in the
whole world !!
Again, thank you very much for everything
you did forme and hopefully I'll have a chance
to meet you personally some day.

 The sound and sweetness of this Guitar is what every

 Canopus has been successfull in achieving the most

 Aloha Yasu-San

 I played a Hawaiian gig last nite using the CANOPUS
 YS-8SD for the first time.
 The guitar was excellent ! I received many compliments
 and also a number of folks in the audience, (musicians),
 had never seen a Canopus previously.
 The instrument certainly intrigued them !
 I want you to know that this guitar has the tone I have
 always been seeking and moreso,
 the workmanship is superb.

 Hi Yasu,

 What a great guitar!
 I don't know how you managed to make a guitar with such
 great tone and sustain.
 Also like the quality workmanship and finish.
 There are now 3 of your guitars in George Lake's class!
 I bet there will be more in the future.
 It was great doing business with you.
 With a BIG thank you.

 Dear Bruce and Linn.

 Thanks for the picture of your beautiful guitar.
 Do you play a lot?
 Yes you did send me the Aloha Oe. We play it too with George,
 usualy at the end of the program.
 I sure like my guitar it sounds beautiful. I think it has the best
 sound of all the guitars in class. George likes to play it whenever
 he gets a chance. I wish I could play as well as he does,
 but I will have to do a lot more practicing. Anyway I'm working on it.
 Wishing you and your wife a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

 Yours truly
 Ruth Blascsok, Canada
