Tom is a down to earth guitar builder who uses reclaimed timber and licence plates to build fantastic guitars. We talk about learning about the craft of building guitars and our favorite podcasts, builders and tools. I'm so jealous that he got to meet Rick and Cindy from Carmine St Guitars.
Thanks for listening!

Firstly, I'm not saying that they ARE too expensive, I'm just playing devil's adjocate. This podcast is in response to a youtube clip that was uploaded a couple of weeks ago. Let me knopw what you think.
I'm sorry for the quality of the audio from the last couple of episodes, it's just been particularily difficult to fin d the time to do the podcasts and the last couple of interviews have fallen through due to scheduling.
Food for thought.

This episode is about selling your guitars. I have almost 20 years of retail sales experience and I thought I'd share my experiences in a couple of music stores on my last holiday. The stores I visited were awesome, the staff very friendly and my pockets were relatively full. However, I left Brizzy empty handed and a little frustrated. What I needed was a sales person to actively sell me the product I was pondering over. I realised later that had the sales person taken the lead and made some sugestions then I would have made some cool purchases. Again I really liked the stores and the staff and I WILL BE BACK! I hope this comes across in the podcast. Don't forget to leave a review or comments and..
Thanks for listening.

Ok, things got a little crazy on this episode. A lot of people have asked me about the best place to put piezo pickups. I love to experiment so I learnt a lot on this episode about wiring up piezo pickups and I was even able to confirm what I enjoy about my choice of piezo placement. Hope you enjoy the episode and tell your friends.

This week I chat with Pat Procter about his amazing parquetry CBGs. Big thanks to Pat for being patient with me as I was having some tech difficulties. He was very giving and a great example of a do-it-yourself builder who started with minimal skills and developed his art to the amazing level it is at now.
After we finished the sign off we had a further discussion about a previous episode where I was talking about fretting issues. He was happy to share his ideas for the patron only content. You can sign up to support the show here through podbean and become a patron.
