Hi, if anybody is interested I have posted a video of one of my builds. A full size guitar.

It was a special build for an exhibition held in a town on the coast. When I asked if I could display one of my guitars in the exhibition, after they called for exhibits, they said "yes if its special". So I made it special. 

It has 50 hearts in, on and around the instrument, this was commemorating two big things in my life........getting married 50 years ago and being in Australia for fifty years, at that time.

I'd say it is one of the best performing guitars I have built so far.

I had people phoning or emailing from all over the place, asking where all the hearts were, and telling how many they had counted.

Thanks for looking

Taff

Beautiful build and an impressive shop.

Hi Tim, sorry l see what you mean now, I dunno how to do that posting links business.

Thanks Dave for helping out.

As always, a masterpiece! Beautiful build my friend. How about a video of your shop? I'm dying to see it.

Thanks all for looking and the nice comments, both here and on the video page.

Hooch,  I'll look into your workshop video idea. I like seeing the work areas of other builders, especially those out there that build 100's of CBGs.

Love the headstock inlay and the whole guitar looks great.
