Anyone have any idea how to get in touch with Bobby Poff, the reclusive maker of fine dobro straps? I sent one back to him for adjustment two months ago and have heard nothing since. Voicemail full, no email response. Pretty frustrating. His son-in-law, whom I found on Facebook, doesn't seem to know how to get in touch with him, and I'm all out of leads (as was another poster back in October resohangout.com/archive/24456). Any help would be appreciated.

I am friends with Bobby on Facebook.  Just went on there and his most recent post was March 26.

On April 5 a fellow friend of his posted on his page, "Hey buddy, are you okay?" No reply from Bobby.

Several weeks ago Bobby posted that he was retiring from his day job so that he can spend more time working on straps and other leather goods. 

That's all I know.

According to Byrl Murdock, he hurt himself recently and was taking a break but had recently picked back up making straps. He’s working on one for me now, which I’m excited to get.

Thanks! I hope he's OK. He was so quick getting back to me for a few weeks, then just disappeared.

Great to hear! If you hear from him, please let him know Erik would love a call back. Thanks!

They don't come any better. My first custom  Poff strap was made in 2007. 

It is among my most prized possessions.

The one he sent me was great but a little long - sent it back for a couple of alterations and haven't heard from him since. Pretty frustrating!
