You may want the hair back, but please tell me you don't want the mullet! :lol:

(I'm allowed to tease because I used to have a classic mullet too)

I worked outside this last weekend without a hat and sunburned my head. That is why I would like some of this hair back.
Nick,
There was a thread on the WoodWeb that was asking how some of us got into cabinet making. My story was that I quit college to join a band and become a rock star and that is how I got into cabinet making.

I always have to recognize courage when I see it in action.
Posting that pix was a great example.

Mike,

The guitar in the picture is actually and Ovation Glen Campbell Artist Model. (Yea I caught a lot
of flack about playing a Glen Campbell signature guitar but it had a real shallow back that I
liked) I installed two Barcus Berry Pickups inside. One on the bridge and one by the
neck.This is the only acoustic guitar I kept when I quit playing. (I don't know why because
the ovation sound is pretty bad)
You got me thinking and here is a list of the guitars that I owned from about 1972 till 1991
when I quit working with bands.

Ovation Glen Campbell Artist Acoustic
Ovation Custom Balladeer Acoustic
Guild F-512 12 String Acoustic
Alvarez Yairi Cedar Flamenco Guitar (can't remember the model, great instrument, I might start playing again if I could find this guitar)
Mossman 6 String Acoustic (I think it was a Great Plains Model)
Martin D-28-12 12 String Acoustic (this guitar is still in Dalhart)
An Acoustic 6 string I bought at the Western Auto Store (my first guitar)

Ovation Deacon solid body Electric 6 String (funny looking but a good guitar)
Les Paul Custom (I tricked this guitar out with Dimarzio split coil pickups) This was my favorite electric that I ever owned)
Les Paul Custom with Fretless Wonder Neck (didn't like the Wonder Neck)
Fender Stratocaster 1960's Vintage. Great Guitar should have kept it.
Fender "Squire" Stratocaster
Gibson SG Solid body 6 String
Gibson SG Double Neck 6 and 12 (a novelty)
Gibson ES 335 Slim Hollow body electric
Gibson ES 175 F Hole Hollow body Electric
Some Off Brand slim Hollow Body guitar that had the nicest neck of any guitar I ever owned

Gibson SG Short Neck Bass
Fender Jazz Bass
Rickenbacker Bass
Hofner (Beatle) Bass
Hagstrom 8 String Bass

Ode Banjo
Emmett Chapman Stick
Fender Lap Steel

That is all I can remember off the top of my head.

Wow, a Guitar Junky for sure..Some very nice ones. I never got real good, I started doing Corian and it affected my fingers, went from a roughneck carpenter with callouses the size of a small house on my hands to having very thin skin on the end of my fingers. I dont hardly touch the stuff any more but my hands have never toughned back up and will not callous over no matter what I do. Of course Dupont has never heard any thing like this before, even though it affects my brother in the same way. I actually had to go to Dermatologist and he gave me antibiotics that would clear up the burning and itching as long as I took them.
Anyway, very cool to play instruments and I will die wishing I would have mastered the guitar, I love almost any guitar music from classical to blues, even old Glen Campbell.

Vine Gill, Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, some of the young guys, just awsome. I almost always have the Eric Clapton Guitar festival playing in my dvd player at home....
