    I hope his hand injury healed well and didn't have any complications. He was quite busy at his work but did have periods of free time to work on guitars and build all that amazing stuff. He may have though that a hobby like this isn't worth the health risk, especially if it jeopardised his actual work and lively hood. Plus he already has built a gazillion guitars already.

    Hopefully I'm wrong and he'll be back with more amazing builds!

    He did more building before he was even fully healed.

    GUYS! I KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM!!!







    He's buried under a pile of guitars in his shed and he can't escape. He just built too damn many of 'em.

    I know, I remember the threads plus the fact that at some point he had to revisit the hospital as the wound seemed infected. I also remeber the guitar he made with the bone fragments he kept.

    Maybe the guitar with his bone fragments gained sentience and came after him. There can be only one!!

    Equally improbable, maybe after he finished the last one he just said, "yep, that's enough" and has built all the guitars he wanted to.

    I genuinely hope he is okay too. Massive inspiration to make me start building and also carry on buliding. Helped me out with a few things and was even kind enough to send me over some wood offcuts for my knife making/wood carving. The man is an absolute legend, and I send him my best hoping that he's well.
