Default Steel bodied Guitar Maker Website

Hey guys,

Thanks for your help figuring this stuff out. I found a place real close by that can do the brass by waterjet relatively cheaply. That will get me by for the time being with the brass.

You said you liked pictures, and I put the ones I have up on muleresophonic.com

I'm still piecing the site together, but I'll put up more pictures as I go.

Thanks again.

That guitar has a real nice sound. Think addition of brass will change the sound? Great work.

It sure will. I hesitate to say the majority of these types of guitars are made of brass. My guitars sound different (not better or worse) than the company who makes them, so it will be interesting to see what it sounds like

Some guitars also use nickel-silver. And that is PRICEY.

Tried tracking down the facebook and I think I got the right one. The link in the corner isn't working...

I like the site, simple, direct, and easy to find. It should do ya good!

I'm doing a step by step right here: http://www.resohangout.com/topic/30050


Thanks for the heads up on the facebook link. That's part of the reason I wanted to tell people about it now, work out the bugs.

My theme for the website will be great pictures of great guitars. Everything else is fluff. Even if it's cool, a lot of websites are so complicated and involved now, and I think that makes them more ineffective.

I like the video with the young one dancing.

A couple of suggestions if you want to demonstrate the sound on video - don't sing and try to get a bit better recording.
