Hello

Post by Manuel Najera » Wed Sep 09, 2015 8:19 pm

Hello everyone,

I have played classical guitar for 15 years now and I have built guitars for 4 years. I consider myself a beginner on guitar making and I joined this forum to learn more about this beautiful profession by reading from the more experienced luthiers and guitar players.
I live in Merida, México, which years ago (probably 60 or more) used to have very good and known luthiers. Unfortunately the tradition had been lost and now we are trying to bring it back.
I am open to new and modern techniques for repair and playing.
I hope I can share my experience with you and learn from yours.

Hi Erik, and nice to meet you. I have one question, assuming that you are one of the adimistrators, is there anyway I can get notifications on my e-mail when someone send me a reply, or when someone adds a comment on one of my posts? I have not been able to find that option on the prerefences configuration.

Thanks again!

Unfortunately sending of emails has been disabled in forum software, so the answer to your question is no.
