Hi all,

I'm Dan from Manchester!

After a few partscasters I've moved onto some proper builds 🤣 

For some daft reason my first build is building three guitars at the same time. 2 music masters and a tele. Whilst it's totally chaotic it's allowed me more practice on key things and also spread the mistake around.

One lesson I've learnt so far is it better to source all materials before hand - planing a lapsteel and a hollowbody next...just got bagpress fret cutting jig so excited to try that out.

Hi Dan,

Don’t know why it’s taken 2 weeks for your post to appear, bet you thought we were all ignoring you!!🤣🤣 Welcome to the forums, I’m sure you’ll find plenty of great advice here should you need it. Sounds like you’re going to be proper busy with 3 guitars on the go at the same time.

Enjoy your chaotic ride!!

We’ll look forward to seeing your progress 👍😃🎸

Hey Dan,

Welcome! I've followed your same route in to guitar building, and I have a sneaking suspicion partscasters are the gateway drug to all this! 

This forum is excellent and the members great.

Cheers!

Dan

@brie I did wonder 😎 ...no I just assumed a mod was away and being a noob I'd need approval.

Not to worry been very busy doing  the dance between spraying, sanding, respraying..thinking you're done, realising you're not...

I look fwd to getting into some guitar making geekery with you all
