New GS Guitar Build Started

Post by WJ Guitars » Wed Feb 27, 2019 5:03 pm

I have started a new guitar build in February 2019 and this will be a slower stage project. (I need to provide additional care and support for my wife who is having ongoing medical treatment over the next 6 months. At this stage the treatment is progressing well). As time permits I will continue the GS model guitar build.

I had stored in my timber stash an Amazon Rosewood Back and Sides set that I purchased from LMI before the 'CITES' problem created overseas shipping issues with rosewoods. I am also using a German Spruce Top, refer to pdf photo attachment. As the guitar build progresses I will provide some progress updates.

I totally relate to your wife's situation if her ailments are indeed that serious...I confront a similar thing personally and am on my own with it...too late for a caring commitment from a caring partner, in my case. My interest in luthierie is a good way to keep my mind off my worldly problems along with meditaton. So much respect from me to you as a carer.
All the best, peace love and prosperity, Ross

Those were lovely words Ross.
Yeah I guess there are a good many of us riddled with ailments, myself included but don't want to go there.
I share wholeheartedly your views that getting on with some Lutherie and discussing it all here is a great great form of medication.
