Just wanted to say thank you for recommending Toelar and his guitars to me. I'm now the proud owner of a new three string electric and a diddley bow electro acoustic. Nice guy, as you said, if a bit out of the way for collecting, and great sounding guitars. Thanks again and have a great weekend.

thanks for the comment on the supro feels weird playing it, its got a shorter scale than i am used to...think i will use it as a travel guitar mostly, seems like more of a novelty

ever hear a band called the Nighthawks? they did a double allbum with Pinetop perkins and others...think you would like it...Kings and jacks, i think its called....i set it down somewhere and cant fnd it at the moment....only listened to it once..but i think you can find it on youtube

Hi There - Thanks for the welcome.  Twerton is cool,  I used to live there. Real Bath with a proud community.  I now live up the hill in Odd Down where we get blown about by the wind.  Building my first Cigar Box Guitar out of parts I have around (I guess technically is an Engineering Gauge Box Guitar as that's what originally came in it). Trying to incorporate some industrial design features into it as a nod to this. Six strings because I have a nice bolt on neck that needs to be used. I'll post some pictures soon.  All the Best, Robin
