Counting down the days…

There are now less than twenty days to go before my guitar build at Crimson Guitars!  I will start on Monday 31 October, and the whole process will be documented on this website.  I will post pictures here, and I will make videos of the build which will go on my YouTube channel and be posted here too.

Everything is ready; I just need to remember to pack everything I need to take!  I already have the pickups, bridge + preamp (for the piezo pickup), tuners, strap locks and jack plate, and I will get all of the woods and other components from Crimson Guitars.  I have a number of suitable t-shirts to wear for the week, although since I extended the course to six days I still need one more!

I’m not sure if I will be able to edit and upload the videos during the week of the build, due to time and bandwidth constraints, but I will certainly publish articles and photos on here.  Stay tuned, and you’ll see everything in time.

All of the articles and videos that I have already published on this topic are linked on the intro page: My Crimson Guitar Build

19 days to go!

I grew up in England, attending school in Gloucester and then reading Classics at Peterhouse, Cambridge University. After working in London for three years, I moved to Belgium in 1993 where I have lived ever since. I played the piano as a child and also started playing the guitar, but never took it seriously until 2012, thanks to Rocksmith. I've also done a lot of singing, including over 30 amateur shows. Since 2012 I have been avidly accumulating guitar-related information as well as guitars and related gear, and I decided to create this site to share some of my knowledge, experiences and opinions with anybody who might be interested.
