saz adjusted (best)

my acoustic long-necked saz was adjusted by
Amir Vahab; new pegs, nut, string-guides,
strings, and bridge were put on. i've had
to shim the bridge slightly; i think weather

were, as much as anything, tests of the saz
which include me getting comfortable with it
again. Amir also adjusted the frets, which i
think is a difficult process. it's a joy to

the engine (best)

desire drawn forth and vanquished, and who may
carry the wand, and of what bone or stem, of
what skin or leaf

wind speaks, put that plant and animal down
