What, a guitar thread? How come nobody told me?

Greeting my fellow fretboard addicts, I have been playing classical guitar since I was 8. I pretty much arrived in the US with a bag of clothes, a guitar case and nothing else...

My first electric from '72. I worked in a Music store cleaning toilets and mopping floors for a year to earn it. Then in the late '80's I lost interest in gits so it sat under a bed for some time till a cousin borrowed it from me to learn on. He had it for close to 10 years and one day I said "Hey, about that guitar, time for it to come home" Then two years ago my son dropped it and snapped the headstock. I put it under my bed again as I was sorta heart broken. Last year my son say's "Lets get that SG fixed" and we did and now it's a regular player again.

started playing a year ago on a Squier Classic Vibe 50's strat.

Just picked one of these up last month, awesome guitar. I go for 10 minutes a day, and on weekends and such I'll tend to log a lot of hours, maybe 6 hours today spent playing while I'm working and can't go riding.

Ouch. I had a '73 Deluxe, the one with the control panel access on the front. I broke it 2 different times. It had a tiny neck which I didn't get along with so I traded it towards a Firebird V.

What is the neck size like on your custom?

Well yeah, but once again, a story goes along with it.

My son was quite inspired by "It Might get Loud"



So he wanted to build himself a Diddleybow. So he gathered up a bunch of stuff..



And went to work...




After a week or so we had this...



While building the Diddleybow, he wanted to fix the SG. I had taken to our guitar tech and he would not work on it because of the binding on the head. He offered a few suggestions of luthiers who might give it a go but he warned that I would be into some $$$, likely north of $400.

So had a go at it ourselves...



The aesthetics are not that pretty but the break sealed up real strong. The guitar holds its tune. Our guitars are not wall hangers so what the h...

LOL. Phil is a bit much sometimes. But he comes up with some great stuff too, and on incredible guitars!

I asked if your son was a Phil X fan because he has that computer fan grill laid out on his project. Phil has one of those mounted on a couple of his guitars. Obscure, I know.

Phil is fun, and if you watch some of his other videos and interviews is seems very laid back....I think it is just a switch he turns on and off as he wants.

I like marty as well I even bought a set of his DVD's. Have him check out on youtube the channel gregsguitars. Those are fun to watch.

If he likes rock-a-billy have him checkout Damian Bacci's channel....bought his DVD as well.
