    Welcome Benderson.

    Rule number one is Be Patient. A build Iíd bound to take longer than you think, and there is a fair bit of waiting. Rule number two is the guitar will be what it wants to be, which is not necessarily what you want it to be. All of us have had to change our plans on builds because the guitar had different plans, so be flexible and open to change.

    Hav you thought about what finish you want on the guitars?

    Ooh I like this. Itís a bit like a wand picking its owner (sorry Harry Potter fans) I often thought this when playing guitars. Some speak to you and some donít. If you find on that does then you are lucky. Guitars are soulful and mythical instruments. Building one is like breathing life into something beautiful. Itís right. They will be what they want to be. They will fight you and make you commit to them and draw youíre love and life into the build. I am finding this definitely.

    Welcome to the madhouse. Lovely choices in kits and looking forward to seeing what they become.
