@steveadams - I’m about 40% through the acoustic course, so I recognise all of those jigs!!

Looking good @steveadams I haven’t done the acoustic course yet but I have to admit it does look very interesting. Have fun and keep the pictures coming. 👍

@steveadams

I should have been more precise/careful with my words!  I'm about 40% of the way through watching the course.

I thought I'd watch it all the way through first, and then decide whether I felt brave enough (and had all the necessary tools) to attempt a home build, or whether I should wait for the Bailey Workshop to open again, and book myself on a course there.

I'll probably only build 1 acoustic, so I'd like it to be a good 'un.

Plus, the workshop courses are huge fun - for me, it's a treat holiday during which I just happen to build an instrument - so I'm leaning towards doing it that way.  But, having watched the course through, at least I'll have some idea of what I'm doing.

Good point TV...

I agree about how it would be fun to do it in a shared workshop environment and also to have an expert on hand!!!

Unfortunately I couldn't be any further away from Mark as I'm down on the south coast in the New Forest!!!

cheers

Hmmmmm ... looks like you're going to be 7-and-a-bit hrs away.

 

Which is co-incidental, because I'm 7-and-a-bit hrs away too.

😉

 

Yup, it's day's drive to get there, and a day's drive to get back again ... but it's worth it (I've done 3 workshop courses, and will happily do the drive to do another one).

For the price you get a quality instrument at the end to boot...it’s like a free guitar @TV101 and you gain a mass of knowledge.

Not to mention gaining friends with builders and team Bailey. 

im on the first available 335 course if there is room..

I have too many guitars...said no one in the world..ever!
