"Hi Mike. Good to hear from you. I have been trying to get a couple of neck scarf joints to glue and hold without slipping out of position. I didn't take time to make a jig of some sort to hold them in position. Still…"
Yeah, I have been busy but I've only shown about ten percent of it on here. Mostly I'm doing everything but cigar boxes. They're just too damn small to give any acoustic volume....which seems to be what I'm after these days! Been on a guitar buying rampage lately. A 1965 all mahogany Harmony, '69 Hagstrom, '60s Kay six string and an old Harmony Rocket. Building my own boxes, hammering some resonators and learning how to bend wood. Planning on building bigger acoustic bodies in a cool new shape I designed too. This full time employment sure gets in the way!
How are you feeling these days? Are you back at the house building yet?
Damn boy! I just visited your page to see if you've been doing anything lately and I see that big scar picture!!!! Holy shit! Are you OK now? Looks like a pretty serious surgery. Cindy, my wife is in charge of the OR at the hospital where we both work.
Sure hope you are doing fine.....thinking about you and sending positive vibes your way man!!!
Yo Mike! I ordered some bass tuners this morning. Will send you two, plus some other goodies once the tuners arrive here.
Started building my first hard case today. Made it big enough to hold two CBGs plus necessary gear...amp, slides, harmonicas, etc. Hope it's not too heavy when it's all loaded. Also made a couple stubby copper pipe slides today that look like they're gonna work real nice.
