...help me outta my funk. I still love guitars, wood, the smell of fresh cut wood the blank canvas, the shop, but I've been on kinda of a break for awhile. What bothers me is designs, nothing is new, fantastic...or rather I don't feel like I'm doing something unique or there is anything left, I really thought I was onto something with the radius top LOL, I figured out pretty early on I wasn't even the first duh how could I be so stupid but now there are even more I see, it's distressing because as you know a lot of work goes into it. Designing that is, that's what initially drew me into this, that and the wood -beautiful figured wood, that cinched the deal. Wood is expensive up here contrary to Ihavenofish experiences lol, I look on ebay and 45 people watching...you just know they are all guitar builders. I really racking my brain here to come up with something interesting, different, to get me excited but where to go?, accessible or far out ?. What are you guys doing to keep motivated ?.
