By the way man, just had a look through your photos. Some amazing stuff there dude! I love the one with the ripped up label on the front, mega mojo!

Well if you're up for a jam I'm goin to have to make a CBG! I've just finished my first build but its an 8 string ukulele (pictures up soon) hooked now but it was a pretty comlicated build with bolt on neck etc so I'm going to try a couple of simple ones next, got a nice Jaegermeister tin there thats crying out to be made in to a 3 string. Love to come and have a look at some of your builds and maybe have a go though. maybe meet up at Bygone one day? I'm after a vintage radio to make a little travel amp out of.

Allright mate, just spotted your post about Bygone Times.I used to go there for a hangover fry up and a mooch every Sunday. Used to live in Eccleston I'm just down the road in Leyland now. You know any more of us about this way? maybe get a bit of a Lancashire lads CBG jam going!

Yeah, I know what you mean. I've made four so far, but each one has been very different, so I've had to learn new things each time. I've got my first commission, but the pressure of expectation is stopping me from starting building it.

A big hello from the other side of the Pennines!

I love the look of the guitars you've made, and the amp's well smart too.
