#MGS3Build - Complete!

#MGS3Build - Complete!

Seeing the colour come to life on my previous #MGS3Build update certainly made the build feel real, but not only that, I knew it wouldn't be long at all before I saw it all in one piece. The photo I shared on that previous article wasn't the best representation of the true colour, apologies there, but hopefully these images will give you a better idea of the colour and thoughts behind choosing it.

Harness update!

Harness update!

Back home and will be processing orders as soon as possible. Upon quick inspection though, the quantity of harness orders over the week away has wiped me clear out of stock of my capacitors! The next batch isn’t due for 4 weeks time, so I’ll be looking for a temporary alternative and will update the listings accordingly when sorted! Cheers, James
Update 15/07/2019 - As a quality temporary alternative, I will be using SoZo Yellow Mustard .022uF capacitors. Please bare this in mind if considering ordering in the short term or please get in touch. Cheers, James

Millimetric Instruments MGS2 Spec rundown video!

Millimetric Instruments MGS2 Spec rundown video!

For those of you that enjoy videos over written articles, I've made this humble video talking through some of the finer spec details of our UK demonstration Millimetric Instruments MGS2. This is not a demo as such, but you can hear the guitar in the background music throughout. 'Tone' Demo videos with much better guitar players than me will follow, where I plan to feature a variety of playing/music styles and sounds available from the guitar. For now, this video is simply to go through the specifications of this build, from body materials & finish, to fret wire, pickups and strap buttons. Yup, you get it all! But if anything is unclear or you'd like further info, do please contact me directly via my website or with Millimetric Instruments directly.

#MGS3Build - It's almost a guitar, right?!

Well this is getting so exciting for me and it's beginning to sink in what is happening! The last #mgs3build update finished by showing the chunk of walnut which will become the neck. Well Florian has been super busy the last few days roughing out the neck shape, profile, headstock and heel etc which you soon realise is quite the task with the quality of work he displays.

Florian sent through an absolute flurry of updates to me today (if you follow on Instagram I apologise for the build spam!) which saw some great progress on initial routing and the early stages of cleaning up the shape and cavities.

Teaching an old dog, new tricks - My review of Veevar Guitar!

Teaching an old dog, new tricks - My review of Veevar Guitar!

I think I'm safe in saying that in 2018, learning the guitar is more accessible than it ever has been. With the internet providing the budding guitar player the broadest possible platform in which to learn due to the likes of YouTube, tabs sites and skype lessons for example, there's never been a better time to pick up a guitar and give it a try. 

With almost everything in life now a just click away, it's understandable to feel that attention spans are perhaps not what they once were. I found out recently that you don't even have to go to the bar at a Wetherspoons to order your drink anymore, there's an app...yup! So the notion of making a concerted effort to learn a musical instrument must seem pretty difficult to justify for the younger generations growing up when so much is 'instant' in our day to day lives. The modern day distractions are endless, so I'm all for encouraging and supporting new ways of helping people learn any instrument, which is why when the team at a new online guitar syllabus, Veevar Guitar, invited me to have an in-depth look at what they have created, I accepted their kind invitation and dived straight in! It came at a useful time, as I'm in a position where I feel I'd like to further my somewhat limited knowledge too, so this seemed like a natural thing to review and try for myself.
