Quick (and final?) update

The £100 challenge is over for another year, or until someone else decides it would be a good idea to start a new one.

If it is re-started, I'm not sure that I'd bother participating in it again. It starts with a lot of enthusiasm but the various entrants then fall away and both challenges ended up with just 2 finishers. (And yes, I finished both times!)

You can make a guitar for £100 in a month, but those constraints impose compromises, naturally enough most of them are about quality. And I don't need to make any more compromised guitars - I'd rather try to develop my skills in making something without those constraints.

So I'm not planning any further updates to this blog. My various guitar building/buying activities will continue to be published on my other blog (<< click the link if you want to take a look).

I've also set-up a separate website dedicated to Kawai Guitars - specifically the KS-10 / KS-11 / KS-12 range from the late 1970s. Why? Have a look at the website where I explain all ...
