I dont know why that didn't copy just as Nick sent it to me, it was a lot neater. You all know that I think Nick builds the best 12 string in the world, and, I'm sure he would send you a list of his better known customers upon request.

I don't have the ability to help Kendall, but I wish him luck and the very best. Nick Appolonio builds beautiful instruments and I wish him well.

Many a genius has lived in poverty only to be honored after passing on. I hope this is not one of those cases.

This summer, I purchased an Apollo guitar. I wasn't planning on buying a guitar. I already had two wonderful acoustic flat-tops, but I was in Maine, on vacation, and I saw and was conquered by the best damned guitar I have ever played. My 1968 B25 and my 1961 Guild Jumbo sit in their cases, neglected like Cinderella. I recomend Apollo guitars to anyone who never wants to play their favorite axe again. Mike Miller

I bought one too. It's a parlor-sized guitar that's just gorgeous---big sound, perfect intonation and it almost plays itself. Unsolicited endorsement.

I haven't played it much. About 4 times in 5 years. Don't play much guitar at all any more, as I've taken up melodeon.
