well the inspectors have moved on and while we aren't allowed to say how well we did until it's published in December..... well, no-one's geting sacked!! but then again, that tells you nothing as they can't sack you on the strength of a single inspection anyway........

As a result of the ETI visit and all the extra stress involved, luthier work has been limited.

the guitar has had the back braced and fitted to the body.

the two mandos both have strings on, and need a little setting up to finish them. the one with the bone saddle in the bridge still needs the pickup fitted.

sadly I WON'T have them done before the Half term break which starts at 1pm tomorrow, but they WILL (hopefully anyway) be done by the end of the week we get back.

I'm TRYING to find time to get some lutherie done, but unfortunately, those lovely people at the schools inspectorate have decided that my school is in need of a visit, so the last couple of weeks have been spent haring round like crazy making sure all the paperwork is 150% upto date and all the wall displays are recent......

still, I managed a LITTLE bit.......

a little setup work on the lefty mando #75..... still a fair bit to do though,

#76 is ready for tuners and all that malarkey....

#77 the cutaway guitar has the neck & tail blocks glued in and the linings in......
