I live in San Diego. I am retired. I built a guitar with John Roberts in 1970 in Phoenix, Arizona. and still have, although it was a Nylon string and I now play steel string (finger picking). I joined this because there was a question about John Roberts and I wished to share my experiences. Right now I play a Boucher HG 56, and am selling a Collings DS-2H I have owned for 20 years - I wanted something a little smaller.
