Today I played a guitar I built with my own hands. She’s far from finished, no cover plates and the nut isn’t even glued in yet, but I plugged her in and she played like nothing I’ve ever experienced. And that’s the thing, that’s the single most special thing about this, the experience. There’s nothing quite like it. So Mark Bailey I thank you, for putting together this course and community who have been so amazingly helpful and kind spirited during my ‘learning experiences’.

The encouragement and patience over the last year has been incredible. From my first post where I’d drunkenly bought a body blank to this, a thing of beauty I can hardly believe I own never mind built.

@cheesewhisk Good for you, I’m glad you enjoyed it and I suspect you will be making more in the future. You only get out of something what you put into it so fantastically well done to yourself.
I’m also eternally grateful to Mark, Carol and crew, as well as this amazing community. The more we all contribute, the more benefit we all get out of it, it works for the many, not the few. 👍

You will never forget that feeling Cheesewhisk! Whilst obviously somewhat distanced, stringing and playing my first self-built guitar for the first time was, on an emotional level, pretty much second only to witnessing the birth of my children. I may possibly have done it without Mark’s courses, but, given that I had been fannying about with the idea for close on 40 years, the chances are that I would have died first! I will forever be in his debt for enabling me to achieve a lifelong ambition. Spread the word, for the word is good!!

I couldn't agree more Darren, every time I look at it I can't actually believe I made that and then again succeeding that life long ambition now opens the doors or 'what next'

I'll definitely record something once I've got the action right @koendb the nut is a bit too big and needs sanding down a bit more first

@cheesewhisk That's awesome! The feeling of seeing your hard work pay off must be one of the greatest things and I can't wait to see mine sitting on a stand in all it's glory. Congratulations on (nearly) finishing and on to the next!
