I'll be at West Dean for the Open Day on Sunday 21st with a couple of guitars. Come and say hello if you're there - even if you're not looking for a new guitar. :wink:

Nothing new I'm afraid. I normally make one guitar each year specifically for exhibitions, but just didn't have time this year. I'll have a maple Torres I made a few years ago, and a Romanillos model I've retrieved from a dealer.
