Introduction

Hello awl,

I'm 66 years old and have been making guitars for about the last 20 - 16 steel string, 10 classical and one electric rebuild. 40 years ago I made a bass bar and neck for an 1895 violin made by Phillip Scott of Carson City, Michigan that I bought for $35.

My last college transcript listed my major as "self enrichment" and I'm here for continuing education. I hope to contribute also but am guided by the adage that its better to remain silent and thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt. So I'd better cut this short.

Welcome Marshall!

Yep, I hear you. Usually I open my mouth just enough to get my second foot in!
I need your help. I can't possibly make all the mistakes myself!

Thank you both.
I already did it. That violin was made by Frederick P. Scott. Got my Scotch mixed up.

Nothing wrong with blended scotch...

Don't be shy. I'm one of the newbiest of the nubes, and no-one has yet made me feel stupid or ignorant (I can do that on my own quite well, thank you). Very good people 'round these parts...
