Hi Mark. Thanks for taking the time to reply in such detail regarding my left handed bridge problem. You're right with your last comment about the philosophy of this CBG malarky but being a design engineer by trade I'm finding it difficult compromise in areas of build, function and aesthetics. Having said that, this is only my second build and no doubt my attitude will change.
As for the build, I'm just gonna reverse the bridge in the saddle and angle the whole arrangement on the soundboard accordingly for a left hander irrespective if it looks a bit odd. Thanks again for your friendship and advice . It's much appreciated.
Thanks for your comment on the video I posted. It led me to check out your photos, and I was over the moon to see your M & S biscuit tin guitar. It was seeing photos documenting its construction on your web-page that persuaded me to attempt to build my own.
I've now seen pictures of thousands of wonderful hand built guitars on this site, but that biscuit tin of yours remains my favourite.
Great work mark, like your builds,yes your right I used Gverb,Hard Limiter,Invert and Reverse, but in what amounts I cannot remember. It was one of those time on my hands looking after my granddaughter days. I have done several of these pieces and enjoyed doing it, but it is labour intensive layer on layer...regards Tom PS I have never done an amp, your pics are very good.
Thanks for the friend invite! I saw your M&S tin guitar online before I made my first instrument or discovered this site, I had the same tin on top of a cupboard. I made my first instrument from a tin a few months later. But I also agree with Mark's comment below...how do you guys get that finish?
