Janne Koskela replied to Jud Hair's discussion Guitar Makers ... making Seagull Guitars. (Video) in the group Guitar Makers
"Nice video! Especially impressing was the side bending machine. Just like that, in a few seconds she did the job that takes a few hours of sweating from me."

The guitars I have built to date are all archtop acoustics. I have not completed my first electric yet but will soon. The guitar I have on my bench right now is going to absolultly mindblowing!! It's made of cooked flame maple and instead of having a checkerboard pattern, every square is outlined with thin venneer. I should be finished at the end of March. Please help spread the word about me!

I was even thinking about building a martin "0" size, which I gues is a little smaller than what you built across the lower bout. I have several guitars to choose from for different voices and so if I build an instrument with a limited rnge it would be just fine. Thanks, Edward

I don't know what "terve" means but I will assume it's a good thing and say it too! I too have only built a few instruments, and those have only been for myself, family and friends. I am looking into building a slot head small bodied guitar like the one in your picture. How does it's sound compare to a Dreadnaught? I am used toplaying large jumbos (Gibson and Guild) and so it will be quite a change for me! Here is a linnk to my page and some links to some of the instuments I have made...if you get a chance to visit my site please leav amessage on my Guestbook page! Thanks, Edward
