I'm a luthier and inventor of weird instruments, pickups, mics, stompers and other gear for musicians and luthiers. I also enjoy helping people build and repair their own instruments and have been online every day since 2003 giving advice and encouragement. Need a hand with something? Just ask!!
I host the Handmade Music Clubhouse, a forum similar to this for builders and players of all types of handmade instruments. I'm member # 1 at the Nation and helped shape it here until I founded the Clubhouse to include every instrument and builder.
I've put together instructional videos plus performance vids of a lot of artists filmed all over the country on TedTV / CBG TV.

From email with Keith:
"Ted, I looked on your web site and just fell in love with this guitar... Can’t remember for the life of me how I stumbled upon the Honey Dripper but serendipity is a splendid thing. Guitars like yours keep me connected with the basics, the simplicity, the earthiness and undeniable sexiness that is the electric guitar. Yes, I have had a good play on the Honeydripper and it’s certainly got some serious mojo. I love it. Cheers for now brother."
