ShatnersBassoon Posted September 23, 2019 Report Share Posted September 23, 2019 Apologies if this in the wrong subsection! Many reasons for me…. Theres a tendency to slip in to a mindset whereby things just stay ‘as is’. When it comes to guitar building I kind of like to spend ridiculous amounts of money on materials because there becomes a responsibility to kick ones ass in to gear so to speak. Is it plain sailing hell no! The learning curve is frustrating as hell and Ive often wanted to throw entire guitars in the bin. However, I’ve learnt…never give up! It’s so unbelievably rewarding and the result of your creations…all of the unique nuances that result from an individuals working process mean that the result becomes a part of you in the same way as writing music, or creating a beautiful painting. It may take one guitar, it may take 10 guitars, but Jimi Hendrix…how long did it take for him to find his unique voice (in the same way as us builders) was he amazing from day one? Hell no! The dude slept with his guitar! Another thing I love is challenging ‘rules’. Cant use pine? Hell why not! It’s liberating to free oneself from these shackles. Anyway, all rambling food for thought hopefully. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
