Crimson Build 2017

A New Guitar Build

In late 2016, I attended a six-day luthier’s course at Crimson Guitars – the full story can be read and watched here.  Even though this build didn’t fully work out (or at least not yet), I will return to do another course in May 2017 – and this time my son is coming with me (the one who made the Cigar Box Guitar).

This is just a brief introduction, and I’ve made a separate introduction and index page which you can find in the menus too.  Look out for more on this new build soon!

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.
