I thought that was the one you had been talking about.

It has lots of significance, but I will let him tell you what it is.

Thank you sir, but most won't get the real significance of it's importance to me. This call was used by a comp caller in the early 80's in California by the name of Art Tanner. He was pretty good during his time and actually won a calling contest that I was at when I was 9 years old. I bought this call off of EBAY 4-5 years ago. I actually just kinda stumbled upon it. I put up a pic of it on the 'fuge after someone posted a pic of a similar, but not exactly the same call, and John Stephens stepped in and said...

"Man those are both great calls! Also this is a perfect way to show the difference in Butch's Handmade calls and the ones that were CNC'd by Cope plastics. We get tons of e-mails about this, so I figured this would be a good place to point it out. The call with the green box is a CNC'd Acrylic and the other clear call shown photoed with the other two clear calls is all handmade. What I mean by that is the second clear Rich-N-Tone was all done by hand(turned, polished and cut out). The first call was turned and bored by Cope Plastics, then cut out on a jig by Butch. If you look at the the first call you can see the lip is smaller and the barrel's taper is more of an angled straight line, where the second one the lip is bigger and the taper has more of a natural sweep to it as it progresses to the band. This is a good way to tell the difference in some of the earlier calls. We have started to go back a little to the natural sweeping shape here of late, but of course the newer calls are engraved. Both clear acrylics were Butch tuned calls, but only one is truly handmade.In the late 80's- 99 Cope plastics turned all Butch's acrylics then he would polish them on the lathe and Jig them out. I hope this helps clarify the time line for Rich-N-Tone Handmade Acrylics! If you have any other questions please let us know we will do our best to get them answered for You!
Thanks
John Stephens"

So it is a call that is 100% handmade by the man himself with the current President of RNT giving me a no BS breakdown stating such. After that thread I received multiple PM's with offers for the call for anywhere from $500 to $1000. I politely declined all. At this point in my life, it means more to me given the history behind it and my personal connection with the individual it was made by hand for. May not be significant to most, but just kinda struck me how I stumbled upon it so many years later...

No contest ring. No gimmicks. No compromising. It’s just pure, raw, balls-to-the-wall, don’t tell your mother, most powerful, non-nuclear duck calling machine on the planet.This call may not be for everyone. But if you can drive it, Game over......

Quite a few "stick-n-tones" for someone that thinks only the old cutters sound good. Glad you finally saw the light.

I still prefer my Olt and Echos over RNT. But when you have a box full of Echos you gotta move on to somethin else :wink:
