My mother-in-law saw this article in The Red Bulletin magazine that came free with her Los Angeles Times newspaper. Yes, Red Bull energy drink now has its own lifestyle magazine. What a world!
Anyway, neat little article about London guitar repairman Jon Free and his side business building guitars from old cookie tins. They only briefly touch upon his building methods, but that was enough to get the gears in my head turning. Thought I'd share it with the rest of the community.

Turns out Mr. Free has a website, too:
For the curious , Jon Free is on Cigar Box Nation as : Tin-Tone.com .
Hi! Thanks for the pdf scan, what a nice article! Cheers! Jon
You're welcome, Jon! Keep building those beauties!
