  1. Misc. Accessories
    Hi guys. I recently ordered 2 x Forza thumb hooks and due to the unavailability of stock (I'm in Australia), I had to order these from overseas without seeing/trying them first. One arrived yesterday and I was astounded to find that there's no way it will fit my Yanagisawa WO1 alto - not a...
