HSBS Dedications

Many HSBS basses are dedicated to Chris' family, friends, and other inspirational people.  While we don't have images for everyone, we want to introduce you to some of these amazing people. 

Descriptions are mostly from my (one of Chris' sisters') point of view.

Please enjoy Chris playing his composition of Blackbird
