Here we are again. 12 months have passed by much quicker than ever before. I tell myself that time passes more quickly because we are busy. The alternative explanation is relativity, and I'm surrounded by relatives so maybe that explains it.
Passage of time ....
And while we talking about the passage of time: the record of eleven minutes between displaying a guitar for sale, and selling it, has been broken.
This month, Mike English put the instruments for sale onto the website before we sent the newsletter out. The Walnut Falstaff was sold four hours before it was advertised. Where can I go from here?
The used mandolin sold within three hours, and there were about a dozen enquiries, including two from the USA.

Back to guitars for sale - we still have the Blackwood Alexander. What is wrong with everybody?
It's a beautiful thing, and I don't believe there is anything else comparable "out there". I have recently seen some astonishing prices for hand made guitars. I'm constantly fighting to keep my prices down, and to me, £6,300 is a lot of money, but other people don't see it that way, perhaps I am not charging enough. My thoughts on price and value etc. are all in "my book".
Wood Sweat and Tears Extended
I've been packing the books all week, and signing a lot of them with the help of my pet spider. Apparently, Mick Hucknall signed one, so he must have sneaked in while I wasn't looking. All the orders have now been despatched and I'm receiving messages of thanks from wives for keeping husbands from under their feet.
There is still time to order a book! We are closing for the holiday on Friday afternoon, but I will be checking mail regularly, and no doubt coming into work over the holidays. I have some books packed ready to send, so you can still get one in time for Christmas. Order here.
