Hello Andries, you seem angry. It was not my intention to belittle or denigrate your work, I know how much time, passion, knowledge and skills are needed to get a cbg efficient and attractive. Small box meant pretty. They are also attentive to the size of the works of others to understand how much influence on acoustics. Big hugs Elio.

Thanks Andries. I've been out in California for about a week for my father's memorial service. He passed away in November at age 96 and was buried in a Military cemetery out there. I'm back now and getting back into my routine. I might have missed a few good things but I'm trying to catch up now.

Two more short stories put in a new blog. The first one is my fave story to date. I apprecate contstructive criticism and corrections.

Yes, sir! I agree! Not to preach, but if God is our ultimate judge, and He tells us we can do all things through Christ which strengthens us, then there's nothing anyone can say or do to keep us from it. If our path in life isn't mainstream, that doesn't mean we're doing things wrong. So, yeah, never quit and never listen to naysayers. I started teaching myself guitar as a teenager learning Def Leppard songs. I got away from it for a long time, so I feel like I'm learning all over again. But, that's okay because that's what life is all about. Anyway, Happy Belated Birthday! I'll be hitting 50 this May... I'll be looking forward to hearing more great stuff from ya. Any plans for your next build?

At 2:22pm on January 13, 2017, Knothead Guitars said…

That's good to hear. I don't imagine that would be a difficult thing for you. You're very talented.

Those white pickups look good.
