Seem like I was always goin'
Which ever way the wind would blow
Now that travelin' spirit calls me again
Since I first started playing music at the age of 6, the guitar has been my instrument of choice. Sometime in high school, I started experimenting with how guitars are built. That interest turned into modifying guitars, and the guitar body of the clock in the picture below is something I made from red luan. That piece was a scrap from the plywood sheet I used for the very first guitar top replacement I did on a friend's guitar in the mid 1970's.
As a student at SUNY Binghamton in the early 1980's, I built a guitar from scratch as an independent study in art. Now, many years later, I am fortunate to have the opportunity to enjoy this pursuit again. The blog entries that follow document the guitar repair and restoration projects I have taken on. I welcome your comments, criticisms, questions and words of encouragement.
