2018 new year .. new beginning..maybe
Jan 29th 2018
Another year has come and gone, and the time just keeps rolling on...
The Music Lab is busier than ever, mostly with daily repairs and our custom guitar mods. but the shop itself is in much the same condition as the last few years.
disheveled to the max.. functioning at a very sub-par level and with not enough spare funds to fix all the issues with.
So there is still much more work to be done before I can get to where I want to be. its just been a long row to hoe its seems.
But With God's help. it believe it will happen. I see no reason to give up on my dream just yet. and when it happens, it will be awesome! I can just feel it.
None of us knows whats in store for us just around the next corner, Guess I'm just eager to get around that corner and see it for myself. but I also know that it took a while to get in this unenviable position, and it will probably take me a while to get back out... I just didn't think it would take quite this long..
It will be 5 years at the new location come March of this year. and 4 years on Feb 10th since I separated from BML inc / J.Backlund Designs guitars.
I had hoped to be further along in my plan by now, and I must admit to a certain amount of frustration from the long wait... BUT, then again, maybe slow and steady does win the race. All I know is I'm not ready to give up completely yet. I've got at least 1 or 2 more designs that I want to get out there.
I want to say Thank you to everyone that has helped me in the past, I could not have gotten this far without you. and I have made quite a few friends in the music industry over these last 4 years, their help has been invaluable.
and here is to meeting new folks in the future. hopefully we can both move into a brighter future together.
Currently I'm surrounded by some really talented people who are helping me greatly.
I'm considering a couple of new product ideas to possibly be released very soon.. but again, it will depend on several factors that have yet to be determined. I'm much more cautious than I have been in the past and perhaps thats why things are moving so slowly, but for the now I'm really watching my steps.
I hope everyone has a great year in 2018, I've seen a lot of things that I'm not happy about taking place in the USA and I hope some common sense prevails soon.
God Bless you and the USA.
