I think that this Video will be appreciated by most here in this Group.

Love the way it is presented, just the sound of the Tools, and no distracting background Music.

That is indeed stunning. The level of skill makes me feel like I am just painting by numbers in my guitar making.

Mind I also know that if I was wafting those sharp knives around like that I would not still have all fingers and thumbs!

Lovely. What a great way to start a day. I admire the sharpness of his tools. He knows what he is doing.

Err...At my age I can't even remember what a gig feels like, let alone sex...btw, what is that?
On a serious note, here is something interesting, also interesting to note the idea/observation that the gut frets create open strings for every note as do metal frets on a guitar , mandolin, cittern etc....also I like the range of the instrument and the tuning in fourths and fifths...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BO2JeKiwbvQ
cheers, Ross
