Hi Mark,

          Just taken out premium membership and placed order for accoustic kit. Looking forward to the build. New venture for me but going for it. I think with the help from your videos I should make it through. Cheers

@powerful

I'll be watching with interest how you get on with the kit. I'm planning on building an acoustic sometime, just working my way up to it.

Hi Robin I've made scratch build electrics before but never an accoustic. This will be a massive leap of faith for me, so I'm just watching and familiarising myself with the videos as yet. But I am looking forward to the challenge. Will post photo's etc as I go on

At the end of each course you will find a section called 'Resources'

That is where you will find PDF patterns and all that kind of stuff

Thanks Mattbeels  I’m just getting started on making up templates, workboard etc  So I’ve got the things I need ( or most of them. I still need to get hold of a side bending iron yet). But will put pics as and when things develop good or bad. Cheers

Thanks carol and mark. Gorgeous acoustic kit arrived today. Fantastic quality and I’m nearly ready to go with the first stage of the neck. Going for it. Thanks again

Acoustic neck part 1 done. Nothing too taxing here but I had to improvise with material removal due to my bandsaw not being big enough. Anyway onto the soundboard
