    Default What happened to Dino?

    Not sure if this is the best place for this, but I haven't seen Dino around or on here in a long while. I was a big fan of his work. Anyone know whats up?

    I was wondering that myself. To that end, where's Jimi? The guitar room ain't the same without 'em.
    If you're reading this guys....COME BACK!!!!!!!!
    Edit: Just saw Jimi posted today....but keepeing a way lower profile these days it seems. Miss your guys input on stuff. It's been way too quiet around these parts!

    His finishes were second to none, thats for sure! And he always had great advice about painting. If it wasn't for his posts and advice, I wouldnt have had the balls to build and paint this guitar I made for my physics teacher as a going away present:

    Dino seems to have just disappeared. His site is gone too, like Sleeper said. I hope the dude is okay.
    Its pretty easy to forget that there are actually people behind this screen names. Normally it isnt that hard to track people down though.

    nice job on that guitar man!
    Any musicians near Boston / Cape Cod want to get together and play some VH? I play drums, guitar, keyboard, bass, and I sing. I want to start a VH tribute band. Contact me if interested.

    Jimi's been posting quite a bit lately, but ya, Dino has been gone a while. He is always a great resource on painted finishes... his suggestions have helped me out in the past too. Hopefully he'll be back soon.

    Yeah...I discovered that. LOL. Must have just not been in the same threads I'd been checking out as of late. With Dino....dunno.
    Wonder if he just burned out. Hopefully not a victim of the economy or worse.

    Just got an email from Dino. Said he's been really busy outside of the guitar world. Wanted me to tell everyone he's fine and will be back around asap.

    ahhhhh! Good to hear! Thanks man! Just kinda unnerving when people drop out of the picture so suddenly. Glad he's alright. If you talk to him again, tell him he's greatly missed by the linkers!
