Another delayed update from Doug’s workshop. This one features a 1930s Gibson L5 (or something like that) progress on the Bass Twin Neck and a visit from Kim Tink and her beast..
Here Doug is one month after the workshop fire.
Unfortunately, Doug had a serious fire in his workshop last week and will be out of action till the end of April getting it all fixed. He’s a quick video to show the damage. Also shows Doug’s ability to dust himself down and stay positive..!!!
Here is an update from Doug Wilkes in his workshop, March 2015. He’s seen here working on a twin neck guitar, and also a custom acoustic build. Plus various other assorted verbal nonsense… 😉
Here’s Doug in the workshop after his recent experience in the emergency cardiac unit at the North Staffs Hospital just 2 days earlier when he thought he was a goner… Needless to say, the doctor said he needs to rest…..
Here’s an update from Doug’s workshop. He’s decided to build a jazzy guitar, and shows us how he’s going to do it.
Doug Wilkes has finished the 24 String Lyre Harp guitar. It just needs a slight polish and then the customer should be coming to collect on Friday. (I would like to point out that I have tried to reply to messages but YT won’t allow me to.. )
A visit to Doug’s workshop sees him working on two new guitars for Dave Cotterill, professional guitarist from Stoke on Trent. There is also an update on the 24 string Lyre Harp.
I called in to Doug’s workshop the other day and noticed he had an Allen & Heath mixing desk leaning against the wall.
