The guitars look and sound wonderful. The burst design is beautiful... especially the purple and the blue, but I love the blue matte one as well. It's exciting to see it all coming together for you. I know that you're working hard to get things accomplished, but take some time to rest and relax too.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate your support


Just a quick update guys; I have committed to having some guitars ready for a friends gig next week and am working very hard to finish them on time. I've been documenting the process; and will get a video together for you as soon as I get some time to edit it together. I'm hoping to have them in paint later this week 🤞🏻 I'll make sure and share progress with you then

I cant wait to show you guys! Keep your eyes on my instagram/facebook stories for some sneak peaks.

Hi Guys!

Just a quick update! I've been struggling with paint finishes and getting the quality to where I need it to be, and unfortunately the premises I was at didn't allow for a dedicated paint booth with extraction; so I either had to strip everything out or move! Luckily I found the perfect place not too far away, and just had to wait for it to become available.

Lots of work to do, but it's the perfect foundation.

Default A fun little side project!

Hi Guys!

I had some materials to use up, and some parts in a drawer that I thought may make for quite a fun project! Here's a video of the process




I'm now well settled in my new premises; but hoping to have a new mezzanine floor complete next week. This will then give me space to fit a little paint booth in so i can get back to finishing guitars!

I've made some really cool developments and cant wait to share more with you all.

Let me know what you think of this new style of video. I hope to record a lot more and perhaps just add a little voiceover explaining the process.

Simon

Thanks so much!

I'm kind of surprised how well it turned out! And it gets a lot of interest every time I take it out.

I am drawn to the red and to the purple burst.

Thanks for the video, Simon, it answered a lot of my questions. I appreciate the care you're putting into getting your guitar the way you want it to be.

If Simon reads this, I'm wondering what's going on behind the scenes at Caulfield Composites. The website says "Under Construction."

I bet he has his hands full with business stuff. He probably monitors this thread and room as time permits. I would be interested in getting one to support the concept when he is ready for sales, although I am largely done buying instruments, either CF or wood.
