Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Straight from Ted Crocker himself
What instruments are you building or playing?
I build lots of one stringers as well as 3 stringer cbg’s

In the beginning...

  My 1st guitar was a Classical guitar Neck & Bridge with only 3 strings, screwed to a Hava-Tampa cigar box, with the inspiration of Bo Diddley & so many others. Damn, I thought I was on the way to fame & fortune! Turns out, that guitar was more infamous than famous, fell apart in a matter of a few months. What does a 14 year old know about building guitars?        

  Looking back on that experience & the lack of knowledge available to me at the time, makes me glad there are places like this. Places where people of different ages & backgrounds can come together & give guidance to all things handmade....
