Nice sound. And interesting playing. Inspiring

PS. I remember going to see Cardiacs back in the 80s - true originals.

Amazing sound (-: like the headstock placement, very interesting build!

Yeah,sounds like them!  I stumbled into a semi-secret Cardiacs gig not knowing anything about them in 1988... kinda freaked me out!!!!

Dan was in Monsoon Bassoon; their other guitarist Kavus Torabi went on to play for Cardiacs proper until Tim's recent tragic... erm... cardiac ... :-(

I remember the Cardiacs, they used to wear make up so they looked like reflections in the back of a spoon. Mad as a bag of spanners. Is Mr Chudley a member? He can certainly bang out a tune, and quite unlike one I've heard before!

Hi Uncle John!

Chudders is a marvel... claimed never to have played much slide before i thrust this into his arms and gave him five minutes to come up with something for me to film! A real natural player... comes from a prog-punk background, weirdly! Do you know the Cardiacs?

The tuners being where they are has strangely never been a problem... I've never seen anyone knock one out of tune that way... worst case scenario, you might snag a jumper-thread on the string ends! :-) 

The headstock (tailstock?) is angled backwards to give the correct angle at the bridge, so they are quite neatly tucked away...

Thanks for the comment! Glad you like it!

Chuddley good.   Like the sound and look and playing.  I think I would bump it out of tune with the tuners as they are.  Is that much of a problem?
