"My little Daion has the new ebony fretboard and pyramid bridge... now is my turn to refret and inlay the mop lyra (or diapason) at the fifth fret. As soon as it will be finished I'll post the pictures."

"Ok... problem solved! I did my first prototype for my 98mmGuild hole. Wood (with some inlay... just for fun!), a thin layer of felt (just to avoid direct contact of the wood), and a synthetic kind of rubber called EVA. It fits perfectly.  Now…"

So long John...

I first met John Renbourn in 1990. He was playing some gigs with Bert Jansch and Danny Thompson in the north of Italy. We had some talking at the end of the performance about his Franklin OM that I liked a lot. He was a very kind and friendly person. Since then I met him in another couple of occasions, always spending a few minutes talking about guitars. The last time was in 2007 and I remember him laughing when I told him I didn't like his last guitar, a Bown. I hope he'll meet Bert in…

era una chitarra ....pericolosa: per la salute della mano (un'action esagerata) e non solo....

era elettrificata (ricordo le due manopolone).....elettrificava non solo il suono, ma anche chi suonava !

Nice bird in your profile pic! ;-)

We have parakeets that just bred!  They seem to like the guitar music...

Ciao, Antonio!
If you google "headway electronics", you'll get a link for headway's web page. By the time I purchased their pick ups, they were a very small company; now, they seem to have improved their business. I bought a "snake" model pick up to install in my solid - body Portuguese guitar in 1999, and it still works as well as in the 1st day. Then I bought a second one in 2001, for a steel string guitar, and it's equally good. "Snakes" are under saddle pick ups, but I believe Headway also makes contact pick ups (for violin family instruments). Now that you mention K&K having a system of 3 microphones, I think I heard of those, but I've never tried them. Those 3 mikes have flexible arms so that you may choose their exact location inside the soundbox, isn't it? Are they expensive?, and how do they behave about feedback problems? Best regards, Luis.

I left you a note about you Yamaha in the 12 string group with a question in it...

I also am really interested in your mandolin...I like the shape and design of the back...I am going to build an octave mandolin and I am looking for ideas. Of course it will be larger (somewhere between a mandolin and small guitar) but I like the shape of the back of yours. Oh yeah, I like the front too! Edward

Yeah, it does sound like that. Stills is one of my inspirations.
