Off the workbench – July 2017

Finished these two 8-string ‘Brahms’ guitars this month – one commission and one experiment. Both settling in well and already sounding good. The commission will be off to the USA in a couple of weeks, but I’ll hang on to the experiment for a while and get some players to test it and give feedback… maybe I’ll try to record some videos of them too.

Now that these two are off the bench, I’ll be taking time out from instrument making to build my new workshop, so this may be my last new instrument post for a few months (although I still have a couple of things on the go which I’ll finish off if I have time this summer). Normal service will resume in the autumn.
