Cool! Who made it?

(also...lattice braced? double top? looks like a raised fretboard!)

It's made by Greg Byers. It's lattice braced, but he uses all-wood, no carbon, so the tone is traditional, just a little louder. yes, it has a raised fingerboard.

Not allowed to. Also now it would make me look too much like Father Christmas.

Good that your avatar preserves it.  ;)

PS I enjoyed our trip to the Ukraine (to visit our daughter who works there). Kyiv is a beautiful city and although I heroically coped with being away from my cat and CD collection we did get to a performance of the ballet 'The Snow Queen' which I enjoyed more than expected, especially hearing Liadov's 'Baba-Yaga' live. Sorry, mustn't discuss music here.

Nice to hear!

I shaved off my beard this morning--this is what I look like beardless--taken almost exactly a year ago when I shaved it then. (This was taken by a student on the last day of school--she wanted a picture of me.)

Me (on the left) and my head of VW made when I was 17 at school.

Click on 'image' or stand on your head if you want to see it.  ::)

Thank you Nik.  :)
Actually I recently discovered the clay original in the shed, amazingly still in one piece after 45 year so I asked a mould maker to make a cast in cold cast bronze (like a fibre glass resin) and I'm really pleased with the result.

Well, Papi Oli had a good view of what I look like when he by chance saw me on TV as I was a guest at a talkshow on CGTN which is in English and shown globally. I will be on again this coming Saturday. The program is called Crossover.

Sorry, so screenshot.
