I went to order the book but dang, it’s expensive. It works out to about 60€ with shipping for me, uff! I may just have to wait until Amazon has it...

Practice on scrap...

@mattbeels Wow! Matt I’m sorry the UK is no longer in the E........ No! Stop it before you start (note to self). Dad luck Matt. If and when I send you something, I can stick a copy in the parcel for you. 👍

Thanks @boo, but it’s not really due to Brexit. The book is £39.95 plus £10.70 shipping to Germany. £50.70 = €58.43. It’s expensive, plain and simple. I’ll but it but I need to wait as I’m a bit short on funds atm and it’s not like I need the book. I recently bought the Neck Pocket Jig (should be here tomorrow) and today I bought the MDF and the hinge for making my jigs and I still need other supplies for the shop etc... 🤘🍻🤘

@boo for some reason I want to make the 8 string bass, despite the fact that I don't play bass.

I'd probably have  to make it right handed just so I could hear it played.

It’s strange his Facebook messenger account is still active sometimes 

Some people call me a tool, others are less complimentary. Tools being useful things.

For anybody who's wondering whether to order this I'm going to say that not only does it contain a lot of useful information, but even if you never actually read it yourself it will make an excellent coffee table book to put next to your copies of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time and Sun Tzu's Art Of War for impressing visitors with the breadth of your knowledge.

@koendb

Brexit has made life difficult for guys like us. I’m still trying to get a wood order from Belgium that I placed in November 2019 for which I paid Belgian VAT and no doubt I will have to pay UK VAT also to get it here.
