I'm greatful the ladies can spell
the more exposure the better I think. perhaps a little note about the type and origins of wood would be nice? ( if you have any spruce without mold discoloration ) I like your ideas with the wood and glass cabinet.... the local music store here are good friends of mine (I do all their repairs and setups) so I might just copy your idea. too bad I live in the middle of no where... !
Three Rivers Guitarras....! I like it! got a label done my self with the help of a dear friend, now I need to find some decent place to print it on acid free paper with long lasting ink or somthin... not really looking forward to that research .ernandez R wrote: ↑Sun May 19, 2019 5:00 amHa, the blue discoloration is a feature, not a bug. It's going to be a highlight of all the top tier Three Rivers Guitarras instruments. Oh wait a minut, I was told the blue is a fungus introduced by the spruce beetle decimating our forests, so what do you know it's a feature from a bug
I really thought I would just roll with it...
Congrats on the music event coming together. Let us know how it goes! Heck, live stream the event! It would be so cool to kick back here with a glass of wine and listen to your presentation and playing from half the world away. All the cool kids will be doing it, oh wait, we are the cool kids, building our own guitars and playing them, exposing others to a new musical culture and perhaps infecting them with the desire to own one of our special guitars!
So far I haven't seen a disadvantage to the cabinet and origanlly thought I would hang it in a guitar/music shop when the idea poped into my head. The hanger I come up with turned out to,be great as I really was hung up trying to think of a way to support them that wasn't the usual headstock clamp thing you see.
And you are right about the note describing the wood etc, only so many hours in the day.
That's good to know about the paper and ink, thanks. I think ordering it printed from the printer would cost less than trying to find water proof ink, so I'm going to look into that, but it's good to know I don't need to over think it.ernandez R wrote: ↑Thu May 23, 2019 5:27 amThe paper I used was nothing special, acid free, partchment, Strathmore artist kind.
Ink was standard out of my printer but water proof kind as I use it for aviation manitneance documents and it needs to be permanent etc. I made it up in my CAD program cause it was easiest.
I just used a 3M glue stick, it's PVA I think. I know some use HHG for labels and I thought about it but just went with somthing easy. The product I use has proven to be durable in all conditions, I have glued covering with it on model aircraft for thirty years without fail in all weather outside; save for longevity but only because I haven't been around over 50 years
Forgot to add- Anyone feel free to correct my Spanish grammar
I live near the confluence of three rivers; The Rogue, Applegate and Illinois. Many businesses in the area call themselves "Three Rivers This" or "Three Rivers That." I worked at Three Rivers Community Hospital for awhile.simonm wrote: ↑Sat May 25, 2019 8:08 pm
...in English when a noun (Rivers) acts as an adjective it should be singular. "Three River Guitars"/"Three River Guitarras".
p.s.(Yes, I do understand the grammatical argument that "Three Rivers" is a name and should be treated differently but it would still sound odd).
You could call yours Three River coffee if you used water from all three rivers in it
