I am 58 years old and live in Rochester, NY, USA. My GGBO guitar will be my second scratch build. It will be a 335-style semi-hollowbody.
I am fairly new to luthiery. My father made acoustics for many years, and taught me a lot about building acoustics, guiding me through my first two acoustic builds. When he passed, he left me all his guitar making tools, and my own pursuit has been on the back burner for years. Two years ago I picked it back up again and started with a 335 kit build. Last year i started (finishing now) my first 335 scratch build.
I have been a hobby woodworker for most of my life and currently have a side woodworking business, Rice Woodcraft, for guitar building and sign making.
