I am searching for a copy of the Poor Man’s Guide Magazine, Issue No. 2. The one which details how Weesay Freeman built his guitars. If you have a copy for sale, or know where I can buy a copy, please let me know.

https://youtu.be/5c_d6KSGn6g    I think this is the video ,about the Weesay  Freeman Guitars.

check it out ! Kind greeettszz   A.D.

Yes, I have seen the video  but I am searching for an actual copy of the magazine. The website it was sold from no longer exists, and evidently neither Shane Speal nor C.B. Gitty are able to print a copy or access the pdf anymore. 

Can anyone help me?

I have the pdf versions if it helps.  Wish I had bought the actual magazines.

Thanks Carl, maybee post it here ,so we can all see what its all about 1

thanks in advance !

Are you able to post the pdf here? That would be fantastic. 

maybee if you post it here on Tim request, we can all see if it  useful for building the Weesay Freeman Build!

thank you for your input in the matter !!

Hello Carl Floy'd ! thats Nice , but to make the PDF file compateble whit the CBN site you need to transfere the PDF in to Jpegg ,you can do this in Windows by means of a screenprint, i dont know how long the file is but a fjew pages will do the trick i suppose, working whit the tools at our disposal ! Let me know how it works out !


You can attach a PDF using the paperclip icon.

Thanks Timothy ! now all the doors are open to download a PDF File by means of paperclip on to the site, so its up to Carl Floyd's to send us the PDF file to the site ! about the Poormansguitar issue no;2  whit details about how Weesay Freeman build his guitars !

You might wanna get permission from the author, if you’re gonna post his copyrighted material? 

Do you think so BrianQ? its on PDF file is it not Free to the Public?, Maybee you can do a good word for Tim Gratsinger ,whit Shane or Gitty being the CBN host ? you have the contacts to these CBN legends ,he says in one of his Blogs thats his live time ambition to promote Weesay's Work & Video's  even after the originator past away ,even the copy build by the SwampWitch King ? i have no interest in the build for my self i was just querious ! its all out of sale ,the money is apparently already made ,no more copy's available, so this seams the only rezone Ble solution!
