All round good egg and snappy dresser...this is possibly the only photographic evidence that Stephen owns a tie..the neighbours are still looking for the missing curtains.

That's cruel!! Though possibly true....

Photos are great Peter. It looks like a really satisfying thing to do. I can see you could really immerse yourself in doing something like this. So many of us have lost our abilities to make things with our own hands. Sadly my skills at working with wood are zero......

yes we got pretty wined and dined that night, after a month in the mountains with mad cats and dogs, (and students) if you look close you might find a bit of egg on my tie, is that what you meant!!
A great month, adventure , and I am proud you take the time Peter to put your photos up on the foro.!

Great photos. Looks like you made yourself a very nice guitar.

A question:
What is the "thing" in between braces number 2 and 3 ? Whats its purpose? and who told you to put it there (The man with the tie????? )

What an excellent thread this has turned out to be. I can't put a shelf up, never mind make a guitar.

ahhhh, anders , there are no secrets in guitar building.... well, in my humble experience this little bar cuts out some of the hum in the fsharp /g area. seems to improve the response. as you know, we are always experimenting a little!

if you ever have funny resonances (god forbid) then try putting a blob of bluetak in certain areas on the top... interesting..

I've re-surfaced this from a few years ago - it's from a time when we used to love to talk about building guitars without having to rip each-others heads off... guitar still sounds great - I believe the bootcampers will get to meet Stephen and have a chance to visit his new shop next year

Chill dudes!!

Its extremely easy to write things like this when you´re not really involved....

But I agree. Before April 2008 this was a way better forum.

I suppose if it is so, there must be something that we can do about it to make it better?

I believe there is. We can agree to disagree and respect each others work.

I'm not too sure what "yes or what" means? but I guess that you are inferring that my 190 posts in 6 years means that I am not involved?

RE: Photo Essays (in reply to prd1

I´m sorry... I´m not really sure what it means either. Forget it. I had no intentions of critizising you and it all end up in language problems.
I´m dead tired of discussing with native english speakers when english is just my 3rd language. Very often things go out of proportion.
Unfortunately this forum has very little space for that..... This is a 99,9% english speaking guiry flamenco forum. And that in all aspects.

RE: Photo Essays (in reply to prd1

No worries Anders, I've been living here in Colombia for the past couple of years (I'm a US citizen) and I run into this problem all the time. One big problem for me are people who look at me and decide, before they even talk to me, that I don't speak Spanish well enough to say anything worthwhile to me. I can't tell you how many conversations about food I've had. Hence, the three dreaded questions that I've answered a million times: What do you think of the food? How long have you been here (and when are you going back)? What do you think about the women? I identify with your frustration.

If I could speak to you in your native tongue (Danish?) I would, but for better or worse English is truly the international mode of communication at this time. I'm amazed at how good everyone's English is on this forum, its a big accomplishment to say you've learned another (a 3rd in your case) language. With that said, I don't really think expressing yourself in your native tongue is very easy either... for those that do it well (in English) we hand out Pulitzer prizes and the such. For those of us that aren't at that level I think a bit of restraint goes a very long ways.

Your written English is excellent - you put your points across very eloquently.

I'm a Geordie - I have problems with folk not understanding my spoken English - you'd probably have more chance!
