Gabriele Reti - Invitational
Hello there good guitar-loving people,
 I’m a grammar school Teacher by day and at night - I’m trying to sleep.
But I’m often haunted by weird dreams. The other night I dreamt Sir Brian May would destroy all my self-made guitars finding them not worthy of anything.
Thankfully, though, Crimson Guitars made up for that and restored my faith in my building abilities by asking me to join the Invitational category this year, which I regard as a great honour and I’m delighted to be part of it. Particularly since using used materials is something I really like.
Hopefully, I can build something that people like enough as to support “Hungry for music”, the charity I picked, by buying countless tickets for my build(s).
Let the games begin.
