Introduction

Postby twisterguitar » Mon May 25, 2015 8:33 pm

Greetings from London! I live in London now for 2 years, I play the guitar since the age of 14 (I'm 34 now) but I had a resting period of 10 years. I recently started playing and teaching the classical guitar again and I decided to join this forum hoping to exchange some ideas. And oh...I am looking for a new guitar as well so if you have any tips or if you happen to know some great (young and talented) builders in Europe/UK (preferably no lattice or double top guitars, no disrespect meant), feel free to let me know and I'll reward you with some absolutely useless twisterguitar points.

Although I am a bit rusty, I'm a pretty adept player which means I can play pretty much anything. Well, I can brag some more but I'm sure we get to know each other better later via this forum.

Cheers!

I'm just travelling back from the Koblenz Guitar Festival, and I can assure you that there are plenty of young and talented luthiers in Europe, not to mention a few not-so-young ones :wink:

If you google my name you will find the most comprehensive list of UK makers out there, some of whom are young and therefore less expensive. Its a bit of a lottery picking a less experienced maker - hence the lower price tag, but can be well worth it, and if you choose well its a way to end up with a guitar that keeps or increases in value.

Also worth chatting to the makers within Delcamp. You never know ... plus keep an eye out for guitars for sale here.

Ah yes, and according to Wikipedia you're also a long distance runner with a personal best of 2:11:40 over the classic distance. Not too shabby...:p

Alright, I am kidding of course. But thank you. I'll have a look.

Thank you Erik Zurcher for your elaborate reply :)

@James Lister, I'll pack my bag right nows and run off to this maginificent festival xD. Yes, I know the festival but alas, I don't have the time anymore to browse festivals. Perhaps next year. And sorry, you don't have to be young but having talent for this craft would be nice :p
