Morning all,

I recently joined and I thought it was about time I introduced myself.  I've been building guitar and bass projects for the past couple of years, mostly basses and always using recycled necks due to my fear of neck building.  I've just finished my first 100% build - a 1/2 scale travel guitar, and I think I've conquered my fear!  

I'm going to keep practising and building, although I'm running out of space to keep them and I'm told there are other things I should be doing ☺

Cheers,

Ken

None of us have ever been told that, ever.

Hi from sunny Dorset

Clamps... you can never have too many clamps... I made clamps because Mark said I needed them, and actually you do need clamps.

Welcome and I hope you are keeping safe. There are other things to be doing but I seem to have forgotten what they were
