Some years ago I heard an interview on the radio. The interviewer was talking to Sting. He had asked him if, now that his children were of age would he suggest they also go into music. Sting replied that he would advise them to do the thing they loved and would be happy to do it for free. Maybe it was generic advice but a light went off for me and as I was working on my dads old guitar I said "I would love to do this and would do it happily." I thought about other times in the past going to a "repair" shop and getting the runaround. Or being treated second class. So I went out and added some tools to my collection, rearranged my life and started my own shop. Building for friends and myself. Eventually I got to a point that I had to come up with an original guitar. My wife brought me a roll of white paper (250 feet) and I stared laying out my ideas. All of which got rolled up and tossed out. With a clear mind I looked at the paper and with just a pencil in my hand I said "I want it to look like this". And the CB-1 had arrived. Spent the next 30 days making all the patterns and two mock up guitars from fiberboard. It takes a lot of determination to stay after a dream. So now that you know a little about me feel assured your small repair or major purchase gets the same attention from me. Thank you Bob.
