I have been wanting to see what the fall looks like in maine, and mass. for a long time. Some of the pictures I have seen are more beautiful than those here in WV and VA.Yes maple is definately a plus.
Thanks for your comments. I was just about to post some more photos of No23 and say it was my first fourstringer but I'd forgotten about the bass I made for a nieces boyfriend. He did the outside paintwork on the house in exchange
Thank YOU. Your stuff is amazing. I really like the Papillion uke and the build you are doing with the curved/clamshell box. I have a pile of those boxes and I like the look (& challenge) of the curved top/edge.
After you left a comment on some of my photos I looked you up. I really like your style!
Apparently you are a fellow Blues Harp musician. I've been playing harp for around 30 years or so. This CBG thing just happened to me in the last 5 years or so. Even tho my 3 brothers and my son all play guitar, I never had the desire to learn to play a stringed instrument until I built one!
Thanks for the nice comments! look forward to getting to know you.
Thanks for the comment.....visual copies those heads, mirrored to use up a pack of six tuners. One of these Punch Boxes will show up in Hampton Beach up near you, tell him you know where he got it. Everything I have here is a mix of things that catch my eye or something that makes sense. I haven't picked up on my own building style but it's coming. I favor the afternoon cookie tins and amps, lots of fun .... I love to tinker with the stuff.
