US China Manufacturing Story Resonates
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:23:19 AM »
I picked up a used 2015 Kenny Hill Estudio series classical (low end Chinese model) & have been playing it for a week now.

You could spend a lot more money for a lot less guitar (incredibly beautiful instrument too.)

The founder gives an interesting & detailed account of how he accomplished this.

This article says they make around 150 guitars per year in the US & 50K a year in China.

For now there are NONE on Amazon & very few on eBay.

This is - to me - just so awesome.

A fellow board member [absolutely hell bent], pursuing own dreams, for life fullfillment.

I wish you all the best, DooDiligence.

I just saw this.

Thanks John!

What's your favorite song?
I'll work out an arrangement & dedicate it to you.
(Disclaimer: may take up to a year as I'm friggin' swamped right now, but it will be done.)

After a lot of thinking - during several days: Are you serious about this, DooDiligence?

[Edit: Somehow, I suppose DooDiligence is used to this question - as a [retired]  sailor - so, it's all about me, and my own safety ...] And No!, this is not the place to laugh!

Yes, I've found something very special to&for you. Willing to proceed?

It's a song about love.
