One thing you should know: Asking a question that's been answered in our FAQ page (below) will probably not receive a direct response.
We're a volunteer organization and like any hobby group we don't have a paid staff monitoring email. However, we'll attempt to the best ability of our collective resources to find an answer to questions that weren't addressed in the FAQ (below).

Such questions are too ambiguous for anyone to answer and need to be stated with as much information as one would normally need to begin research (specific model name, serial#, professional condition as assessed by a local tuner, etc.).
We receive many email inquiries a week and do the best we can with the resources we have to answer them in an intelligent and timely manner by finding the correct people in the organization who could best give you an accurate answer.
