2017 November 
One thing that is special in England is Guy Fawkes’ night, which is on the 5th of November. There are usually big firework displays everywhere.    If you want to catch up with what happened at the harp guitar gathering last month check out Greg Miner’s blog for details and lots of lovely photos. Greg also  has released a new album with Knutsen instruments called Norwegian Wood.   Importing things into Germany is tricky as a business. I had to apply for a special permit and now I have this special bit of paper. Now I am waiting for another  certificate to say I can export goods out of Germany. It has taken a good while for things to happen but slowly things are falling into place.  The sitar guitar (with the sympathetic strings long side of the neck) customer visited me. He was pleased to see how the guitar was coming along. He did ask  if I could cut part of the sympathetic strings away to make room for a special capo. I’m in the process of lacquering the instrument so what to do! First is to try  and adjust the capo and perhaps find an alternative system before attacking the guitar with my saw and sandpaper. The double neck is still being sprayed and  and looking better every time.    The 32-string harp guitar is almost done. Put on some sharpening levers, insert a label, pickups and sort out the mute for the sympathetic strings. I also need  some cases.
