I've been playing guitar for 50 years, and was always fascinated with luthiery since childhood, but raising kids by myself it was a hobby I never could afford to get into, and as a chef I would fight for time.
The unusual circumstances of this last year finally gave me the opportunity, so I went and bought a battery of cheap tools and ordered my first kit (Pit Bull Guitars, AU. EXCEPTIONAL kit). I had never touched a router in my life.
I've managed to successfully assemble this archtop, and she plays nicely, so I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring.
