A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
Ok, I just posted a last set of photos of my latest Stauffer/Viennese style 8 string replica before putting it in it's case, into the shipping crate and off to shipping company for it's long journey to a new home on the other side of the world, Edinburgh, Scotland. This design is one of my favorites to build and play...another is already making it's presence felt on my work bench.
I wonder who the lucky recipient is? Oh wait - it's me!
This instrument is going to be "dans de bonnes mains" as we say in french. Congratulation.
"dans de bonnes mains!
Looks fabulous! A very serious and professional looking instrument. I am very interested to hear what Rob is going to play on it :-)
It's designed to self distruct at the first strains of "Smoke on the Water" or "Stairway to Heaven"...a new feature I've incorporated into all my guitars. Got the idea from watching old reruns of the "Mission Impossible" television show...so if you see smoke it ain't on the water and you'd better run like...er, Heaven for the stairs!
OK. How about The Mission Impossible theme tune?
Now, that would be cool!
