25th anniversary 

Trying not to be boastful but this year I celebrate 25 years as a guitar maker and want to share this.. its amazing how time flies when you are having fun.. and the girls still say I look 20 something..
Seriously I am proud to be keeping this wonderfull tradition alive and I hope to be making fine guitars until I pass on to the next world...
This year sees a limited production of 25th Anniversary models.

Congrats Stephen.

RE: 25th anniversary (in reply to stephen hill

Oh yeah, I just saw the second round in september.
It'll depend on what I do next year (study wise).
But I'm really thinking of building a guitar, and your course seems the most credible way of achieving it nicely.
I will write you an email if I can make it in september!

Congratulations! Devoted artisans like you and Andres are an inspiration to the rest of us. Hope to offer you a brindis in June.

Does each one come with a bottle of 1985 vintage port? (These things are probably hard to anticipate. Still, a good alternative to some player's signature on the label )

Well I thought it was a toast, in Spanish. But a glass of wine (in English) will do.
