  1. Great to visit your website, I believe we haven’t contact for more than 7 years (since you left ADI)? Met Tom Gratzek once and talk about you, :-).
    Although I am not that interest in Guitar but still envy that someone who can work in the field of his own interest…I will consider to extend my own interest after I retired also.

    • Charles good to hear from you! yes I am making an interest into a business, I have not retired just moved onto a different career again! all the best Charles, maybe see you one day in Taiwan!
