February 16 2014 - Trade Show coming soon!

It's been a while since I've posted anything, because things have been so crazy busy for the past month or two. In that time, I've:

  • finished 2 guitars
  • created an online store
  • gotten all my marketing material done (business cards & guitar picks)
  • started 2 new guitars (black limba and spalted tamarind)
  • created new products (like my business card cases)

In addition, I have an upcoming trade show, the annual Local Business Expo & Trade Show at the Ajax convention center, on March 5. I've been working hard to get my booth ready, and building relationships with some of the local music store owners. I'd like to give a big shout-out to David Wilson of Wilson & Lee, who has been really great in helping me out along the way.

The only things I have left to do for the show are to get my signage squared away (I already have a rough proof of what I'd like to see), and stage a room the way I intend to stage my booth.

All in all, I'm in pretty good shape. I've finally squared away all the issues I had in my first couple of builds, (or, at least, I think I have - things have been going MUCH faster this time around) and I'm hoping to have my current 2 guitars finished for the trade show. It will be a photo-finish to see if I get them done in time, but so far, I'm on track.
