Hi from sunny Suffolk!

Well, I visited the site as invited. Nice opening pic (though why no cbg?), but that was as far as I got. None of the tabs seemed to work at all, and as I work with local government IT systems my patience is pretty high. Five minutes- nothing but the pic.

Please fix it, because we really need a UK-based CBG network. We get very few gigs, we don't get festivals, or any sort of get-together, and nearly all of our parts perforce come from the US or China. At least we can source excellent timber...

Keeping my fingers crossed.

Thats weird!

The first page shows a video, my promo video and all the tabs work for me on both laptop and phone! 

really not sure why its not working for you!

Well, it wouldn't fly on my iPad mini 2, but with modern 6th gen capability (borrowed from my son) it did. Some nice things you got there. Now- where in Suffolk?

In between Diss and Bury St Edmunds, you?

Whatfield- between Hadleigh and Needham Market.

That idea of talking guitars over a beer looked more tempting a month back, before I gave up drinking! Mind you, I can now drive after 6pm if I have to...

well Im stuck at home at present so not really an option for me either sadly at present but still! theres always here!!

You a player or maker?

Both- though I sincerely doubt that i’m anywhere your standard either way. If you check out my pics you’ll get a flavour of what I was building earlier this year; of the videos i’ve posted probably only the latest two bear watching, and even they’re not ready to go on the road yet. But it’s early days, and i’m still learning.

i’m actually at a loose end Saturday- the wife is having a long weekend on the lash on the north Norfolk coast and my son is at rehearsal all day. Anything rather than fret a neck, frankly- if I could just wave a magic wand!

I kinda enjoy fretting necks, headphones on, take my time! Need to get into it though! Distractions can be a mare!!
Sadly I’m tied up day or I’d say come over, I’m not getting out much right now due to anxiety and depression issues

Hi from equally sunny Hertfordshire. Great website John and some really fantastic-looking guitars...…...well done mate!

Cheers Martin, appreciate the feedback!

Great looking site,have bookmarked it for the future!
