My Full Monkey Pod OM Acoustic Guitar

In August 2010, I committed 14 days to building a guitar in Kuala Lumpur. I under went Jeffrey Yong's two-week guitar building course. There were many highlights during the course but suffice to say that I have completed building an acoustic guitar, with guidance from Jeffrey Yong of course. It was indeed an significant milestone in my life. Below are some pictures of the guitar I have build then.

 

With this, I have commit myself to further my capabilities in building guitars. In due time, I hope that my handcrafted guitars are worthy enough to serve the Singapore market.
