Bonjour j-v and welcome.  You're a couple of years younger than me and I'm still a novice, so if I can make a start, then theres nothing stopping you :-).

merci !! i agrée , i started smithing 4 years ago ..i prefer to make a go at things , like that no regrets ..

Bonjour J-v, bienvenu chez les accros! welcome to the addicts. La forge est un super passe temps aussi, ça peut conjuguer de belles chose avec les guitares (chevalets, cordiers…) Tu as plein d'infos utiles ici
Blacksmithing is a good hobby too; you can make lot of things relative to guitars
enjoy

merci !!

Welcome j-v, and I imagine you could smith an incredible tailpiece for your cbg!  Also I too was a bit older than you when I started into this, I try to learn something new each time I make one.

thanks !!
