Greetings from Northern Tasmania

Post by Malto069 » Thu Jun 22, 2017 12:28 am

Hello to all,

I'm posting for the first time - although I have been reading posts on this forum for some time, usually in relation to my growing interest in building classical guitars.

I have played guitar myself for some time - for pleasure only, but it only since my son starting learning classical guitar in Launceston (Tasmania - which is a state in Australia for those who may not know :) ) that my interest in making guitars has grown. The intention, initially anyway, is to build him shorter scale length guitars as needed. The other motivator to build my own instruments comes from all the great tonewoods that we have available to us here in Tasmania.

Thanks to all who post here - I've come across a valuable resource.

Regards,

Matt

Hi Matt,

Great to have you on board. I'm yet to visit Tassie but hope to do so one day. You've got a number of highly regarded luthiers on the Island including Allan Bull and Daniel De Jong, so you are certainly in good company.

Regards
Paul (Melbourne)

Thanks Eric, Paul, & Peter,
Daniel Brauchli is another fairly local to me doing interesting things with Tasmanian wood.
There are a few of us that attend the local men's shed who mess around with guitar /uke making. Both Strato (from Australian Guitar Making School) and Chris Wynn from Thomas Lloyd Guitars in Monsalvat conduct regular lutherie courses in Tasmania.

Regards,

Matt
