Step by Step Guitar Making, GMC publishing ISBN 978 86108 696 9
I have recently passed my 65th birthday and felt it would be a good point to retire from the hustle and bustle of both making and repairing musical instruments, especially since I am also holding down a part time job, five days a week. I will continue to make guitars and mandolins for my own pleasure and probably sell them on eBay.
I do have a couple of Brazilian Rosewood cutaway models available from stock, please get in touch to arrange to come and try before buying.
If you have questions about instrument making, repairs or my book Step by Step Guitar Making, either the first or the revised and expanded edition please contact me through my email address of "docguitar at btinternet.com". (address modified to beat the creeps that send out spam). I have a few copies of my book available if you would like an autographed copy at £15.00 plus P&P.
I am available to give talks on guitar making and would be happy to do masterclasses if there is enough interest. My guitar making course is fully booked at the moment, I will post information when the next class is giong to start.
As part of retiring I will now be concentrating on creative writing. I have just completed my first novel and am working through the non-ending revisions. As with guitar making I am available to give talks on my experiences in creative writing.
