Richard Edwards

This guitar is for my Mom. She picked EVERYTHING.

I started building kits in Jan 2021. GGBO '20 really got me into it after building FX pedals for years.

This is my 3rd completed build -- but I built the first 2 concurrently, then started 3 more and finished them all within days of each other. So, 5 builds in 2021...and 2 more kits ready to go!

I'm 41, live in San Jose, CA, have 4 kids and am a Data Analyst during the day...and sometimes at night :)

I'm not a YouTuber...but I do try to document my builds on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/drrje/)

Thanks for checking it out!

Note: Hey Texas Toast, I wanna build that set neck!
