Stuart in a paragraph

Hi Everybody

Just a few words about myself. 49, Wife, 3 young kids, 1 dog, 3 gerbils 1 pony and 10 chickens. Live in Herefordshire England.
Had'nt touched a guitar since I was about 17 and then it was only for a few months. Hit 46 years old went into mid life crisis- Wife said I could'nt have a motorbike so I went to the music store with the sole intention of buying a big arsed bitching electric axe and walked out with an acoustic. Got hooked, traded it in for a better one, hell you all know the story of how guitars breed. Love the Blues and fell across you CBG guys after typing in "Delta Blues" on You Tube and coming across some interesting people playing some cool guitars. Started with a Chikcken Bone John build and now suddenly seemed to have a room full of my own builds plus other additionals from Roosterman and a Ponkster - Sold a couple to pay for the others etc etc. Totally blown away by the people of the CBG Nation - Their just do it attitude is so bloody refreshing from all the conservative grey pillocks that the world seems to be filled with nowadays. I can't play for shit, can't sing for shit and can't build for shit but in my back room with the amp cranked up I am Elmore James reborn !!!!!!!!!!!!!

hi stuart, hows it going? hope you are well. good job on the texas guitar. go and give those damn folkies what for! looks great. Cheers for the comment on my guitar. Of course it is tuned to a banjo. What other tunings are there? (What I mean is 'other tunings worth using')
have a good christmas mate.

Great stuff! Looks awesome mate :o) Sounds pretty damn good too - did you add soundholes? Im also intrigued.... did you manage to get the bridge in exactly the same place? I wonder if your 'duff notes' maybe wernt duff at all, maybe the intonation is just out a bit?? Anyway, top notch job on the build and the playing and the singing 11/10 :o)

Excellent news mate!! Any pics of the finished piece?? Its great when they just sell themselves like that - and the mrs cant complain coz your hobby is paying for itself!! :o) Good work!
