The first guitar I ever built..... And not the last, because this one started it all! 

The year: 2006

The place: Mark's shop in the Maybole area

The guitar:

20180929 092837
20180929 092824

Slightly worked over through the years. It originally had an oil finish, but I sprayed a high gloss 2k clear coat on the body. I also had to make a new neck, because I scr***d up the original one...... But that was not an issue. Not if you've had Mark explain how to make one  ?  ? 

Measure once, cut straight away and maybe you're lucky......

This is a beauty Edwin, especially for your first build. I have been thinking about lacquerring my first build that I originally finished with oil, my Bailey Bandsman. 

Make guitars, not war 🌍✌️🎸
