He's been a mystery for a while now and he hasn't done any work in years. I don't really know what his situation is and he also had a small record label as well. I've heard some stories, but I'm not gonna say anything because until they can be properly substatiated, they'd be rumors with probably more untruths than anything else. He did OK by me, but compared to what many customizers are able to do now, his stuff isn't on the quality lines of the Filisko guild or Joe Spiers. The custom harps of 10 years ago aren't as good as they are now as their techniques have evolved and most every customizer will tell you that they strive to improve on their work.

If anyone has news on Tim, I'd certainly appreciate it, especially if someone is keeping in close contact with him.

I also met Tim in Texas in 2003, bought a few really nice harps from him - and since then it's like he fell off the planet - I've tried to contact him in many different ways, with no success.

He was really nice to me, let me stay at his house, took me around Austin - I'd really just like to make contact , see how he's doing...
