Location: Concord, CA

Insurance broker by day, creative mess by night. I'm a musician and aspiring woodworker who is fed up with expensive mass produced junk. I've done some soul searching and realized I'm happiest when I am creating things, be it music, art or anything I can touch, use and admire. I think it's my gift so I'd like to hone my craft and really start making stuff.

My first priority is furnishing my home so I'll be starting there. Who knows where this will lead? I'm more about the journey right now and man, it's gonna be fun.

welcome sixstring, another ax man here.. also of the sixstring variety. I have a Les Paul Studio that I run through a 30 watt class A tube amp and an Alvaraz Jumbo acoustic/electric which goes through a Fender Acoustasonic amp.. what kind of music do you play? have you ever thought of building your own ax?
I have been doing alot of exploring trying to figure out the best way to make my own.. the electric shouldn’t be to hard, its the acoustic that has me worried.. Anyway welcome to LJ’s there is a bunch of good stuff on here.. have fun

Howdy fellow musician. I play a variety of guitars from my Les Paul, SG and Epihone Dot, to my Alvarez acoustic and Epiphone jumbo. These days I find myself playing acoustically but in a previous life, I played rock guitar through a 100 watt Laney halfstack. I dont miss lugging all that equipment around. I seem to spend more time in the shop lately but then again, I have some projects keeping me busy.

Thought about taking a class to build either a mandolin or uke as an intro to instrument building. I may leave stringed instruments to the pros but consider building percussive stuff like a cajon or stompbox. Should be fun joining my two passions together and looking forward to every little challenge that comes my way.
