Guitar Notes for the New Year, LaLaLa

Hello, it has been a while. Happy holidays to all.

As you can see in the photo I have put some of my guitars on display in my shop. Some of these are completed guitars that I use at shows and and some are under construction waiting for new owners.

The past year was somewhat busy in the shop, I completed a few new instruments and there were lots of repairs and plenty to keep me busy.

Recently I had a story writer from our statewide magazine, New Jersey Monthly, come visit me along with a professional photographer. The photographer and I set up a few working images that I have yet to see and the story will be published in the March 2020 issue of NJ Monthly.

(some of these instruments are featured in my past posts)

What else? Currently I am in the design process of an electric guitar model. That will be down the line but working on it.

In the New Year, April, 3-5, 2020, I will be exhibiting my acoustic guitars at the Artisan Guitar Show in Harrisburg, PA.

This is a three day event with concerts, musical performances, hand-built instruments and their makers, vintage instruments, workshops and classes.

I am happy to announce that I will have my favorite musical duo, “Frank and Hank,” Frank Sole and Henry Nerenberg, perform for me at the show on Sunday, April 5th., featuring my instruments.
