So I got into this thing, just thinking I wanted to make one guitar. Along the way, I found that there isn't much I'd rather do on earth than building instruments. At this point in my life I may even enjoy it more than playing. Recently I've been reading books about Antonio Stradivari. I'm so inspired lately, it's beyond obsession.
So anyhow, a friend of mine liked how my first build turned out so much, that he asked me to build him one. He's a part-time pro picker living in Kentucky. His dad owns a 1933 00-17 that he's always liked a lot. So that's the idea. This guitar will be a lot like that one, in concept.
John Hall put the kit together, and I started on it over the weekend.
I'm going to post progress on the blog, if anyone is interested in following along. The purpose of the blog is so that my buddy can see what is happening. I'm not sure how the blog-follow feature works, but there's a "follow" button on the top-right of the page.
I'll no doubt have problems along the way, which will likely show up here at KGF, too.
