Received my new flute in perfect order and on time. It or should I say she is a beauty. John has crafted a flute that reminds me of the work of a master violin maker. I play about 6 of my flutes twice a day and It only took one day to have the hole locations down. She is a great flute, I checked most of the makers around and finally, glad I called John. When I told him what I do he had the one suggestion that did the trick. Thanks John, a loyal customer, larry
