It has been awhile since I logged into here and thought I would update. Usually I just lurk and read the forums.

Now located in Portland, Oregon and still building guitars, but also making cigar box guitars, ukuleles, and kalimbas.

New website as my wife and daughter have joined up to make it a family business with lots of other offerings.
A friend sent me a CD for family listening in the car. It is ummm.... different.  Something called Kawaii metal or J pop combined with metal. Appears they are extremely popular in Japan.

General Discussion / When to start a child on guitar?
November 02, 2014, 03:43:56 PM
So, I recently became a father and it has taken over my life. Life got excessively busy well before she was born, but now that we are five weeks in, I am slowly getting back into normal life again, sleep and all that.

Being a firm believer that music education and learning to play an instrument is important, I look forward to sharing the experience with her eventually. Obviously she is way too young right now, but at what age do you start and how?

I know there are children learning violin as young as two. Would that be crazy for guitar? Better to start on a different instrument like piano first, like Eddie Van Halen? Am I crazy for already thinking about this?
I am hoping that you guys might give me your opinions, even if you only know someone who has them.

I am thinking of trying the Alumitone Deathbucker in a pointy build that I am finishing up but don't have a pickup for.  Not a lot of reviews out there.
Just thought I would introduce myself here since I am a builder, not just a player.  Recent start-up in California hand crafting guitars and other instruments that are a little different looking and higher quality than the standard factory stuff.  Check out my website for more pictures and information.

Looking forward to checking out the site and sharing in discussions.
