Some of the more eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that recently I resigned as a moderator on this forum. It was taking up a bit too much of my time, and I've also decided to visit and post here less frequently, and try to spend a bit more time playing my guitar. I've been a member here for nearly 11 years, and a moderator for a significant portion of that time. When I first joined there were very few luthiers (myself, Pepe and maybe a couple of others), but these days there are 50+ professional luthiers, and a great many amateurs who continue to contribute their time and knowledge to answer the many questions that come up from members.
I feel that the forum is in great shape, and in good hands, with an excellent team of moderators, and many experienced luthiers, teachers and performers.
I'm sure I will contribute to the luthier's forum from time to time, but I'm also hoping to post a few more recordings when I get my playing back to a standard I'm happy with.
Very best wishes,
James Lister, luthier, Sheffield UK
