Default Performer Bling - Thanks Marty Leach

So I contacted Brother Marty and asked if he could make me a special inlay handle for my new brick red performer. Well, Marty not only said yes but also quickly sent me an approval drawing and 5 days later........BAM..... Marty made me a beautiful maple handle with bubinga inlay on both sides.... One thing.......ah Marty....... it ah....... came with $.010 postage due............ Now how do propose I explain that to my wife.......eh........... Now I got to beg for another dime................just never ends does it........... So what sets off a new performer better than a custom Marty Leach handle?.......................NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

Great looking handle! I have his handles on both of my performers and my UDS. He does some amazing work and gets them out super fast.

I can't believe it came with postage due! I print the mailing labels off the Paypal website that is tied into USPS. Flat rate priority mail. Crazy!! Sorry about that.
