Guitar build day five – and fame at last!

Today was the penultimate day of my six-day guitar course with Crimson Guitars.  Again, it was a very busy day, working on the body (mainly the control cavity) and the neck (installing the fretboard dots and side dots).

The full write-up for today is available here.

In addition, Ben Crowe, the owner of Crimson Guitars, did his weekly “What’s on the bench” video today, which features me and my guitar at around 11:20.  That’s also my guitar on the thumbnail of the video!

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.
