CAN YOU SEE WHAT IT IS YET ? *

SHHHH! it's a bit exciting...  [ and everyone will want one]
This weekend we are in the workshop progressing two acoustics with Marc and Geoff, who both have May deadlines for finishing... BUT we have also got JIM B in the mix and he is testing out a couple of FIRSTS for our workshop (go Jim!)
 
These will become two new options for 2023 - and for existing students/ premium members only
 
 Jim is here working on his own design hollowbody electric, which will pave the way for our own workshop course (finally)  - and has come here as it will be easier to use our benches and have access to the tools etc -  especially as its a bit chilly now in his home workshop
SO we have decided that for the first time in our (nearly) 25 year history, we are going to offer open workshop spaces to any of our member/student builders - bookable by the day to start, continue or finish any projects you got going on. 2 or 3 at a time max, and you get to use all our facilites and MARK 😁
Some days will be available on our normal courses, but the rest can be arranged to suit - come with another forum friend or 2
We will add the items and course dates etc to the shop soon , but in the meantime if you are interested please message us as normal or email carol@baileyguitars.co.uk for more info
[* Jim is making his own design of hollowbody arched back and top - using the famous Bagpress lamination method & tools - more pictures and updates to come]

@markbailey That is exciting news and a great idea. 

I’ve still not been to your workshop but I might be able to see it, over the water from here. 😂

I have got to make the time, I’m closer to you than ever before. 

Hope everything goes well for you both.

Wish I could be there myself. My arms aren’t up to the flight anymore though. 😂
