I bonded with a really nice Takamine EG220c only to have it be set up and found out that the guitar was repaired because of a neck break........

I'm back in the market looking for a Takamine (if possible). I have R3500 to spend and would ideally like a hardcase in it. Some wear acceptable, doens't have to be pristine, well loved, but used is fine by me.

I've played a 70's SG and wouldn't compare it anywhere close to a gibson or epi SG.

plus 3 on Artists. Now I need to find me an early one.

Reminds me of these guys

Hayseed Dixie - Back in Black


That song had some real good flow to it. I just hated the guys voice.

Yup...............it does look good.

The nice thing about exposed walls is that if I decide to do this, then it won't take much effort.

I gather you are not going to plaster? That would bring up your STC by about 3dB, but might be wasted as I suspect your roof structure won't approach the STC your walls already have.

You're building a double ceiling, but not double walls, right? Did you consider some glass bricks high up? It's a good way to get some natural light without compromising on isolation.

Correct, no plans to plaster and no double walls. I will be adding some wall panels/ ceiling panels and some corner bins, but nothing else.

I was thinking about the glass bricks, but to get any sort of half decent light in there, I'd have to use a few and I stay on a terraced property and my neighbors on that side look down into the room. I don't want to advertise what gear I have in there.

Well they got done with all the brick work yesterday.

The feather in and blend in is pretty damn awesome, once the walls have been cleaned and brushed and painted, I'm sure that you'll hardly notice it.



They slotted the walls in order to get the feather in as neat as possible and also closed up the upper two vent holes that were used to ventelation. I had them close those as the AC lines can be made much smaller and neater.

I found more work to do on the inside as the last of the small sections of paint have to be chipped off and removed. I also have to now wait for my electrician as he won't be able to move my lines next week, so the roof frame is on hold until he's done with that.

Yup, loads of work at the homestead. Had to pull up all the waste water lines, that took a lot of money and a lot of time.

They finally started with bricking up the windows on Monday. They should be done today.

Before.



During.



After.



Outside.



I was fussy about how I wanted this, I want the outside to look neat and clean. I don't mind if the exposed brick is somewhat off, as the exposed look and patched look is kind of what I'm going after.

Before.



After.



Super fired up now as I've organised that the houses main DB board be moved as well as made bigger so that I can put in an AC for the music room as well.

Hopefully in the next week or so I can start with the framing on the second door as well the suspension on the second ceiling.
