Hi all, and thanks for all the welcomes. I feel all warm and cosy here already. Sooo, what to talk about? OK, I own four guitars, an amp, and a Cittern. So to go completely off subject in a guitar forum I'll talk about my Cittern. Here it is in it's current state: I know it's not a guitar, but would anyone be remotely interested in the back story and how this repair process progresses given it would be generally applicable to an acoustic guitar as well (I don't fancy smashing one of my guitars just to make this post relevant)? Cheers, Reg.
