CB836-CM Bob Ranew was our first customer. And we’re lucky. He’s been with us through all our growing pains, relocations and big breaks. He came up with our logos and has lent his designer’s touch to our little company on many an occasion. Perhaps his most noble act is letting me have free rein when designing his latest CM concoction. For lack of a better description, my inspiration for this one was “vintage NASA”. Not in a “shape the muffler like a rocket” kind of way. I just loved that Apollo stuff as a kid and drew some cues from it. Just a few more tweaks and it’ll be jettisoned from the air lock and off to planet Bob.
