BUT some old wood can be infested with wood-chomping insects that would find the wood in your home just as tast...

No problem! I love heavy sounds if you can't tell. :D They are actually still pretty cheap on eBay. Like $50-$75, but $35 is a great deal for them! edit: whoa shit! Those prices jumped up like twice as much this year! Damn. I'd still spend $100 on it. I guess thats how it goes on the interweb. All ...
