Hi. My name is Barnaby, and I am an amateur guitar builder in Tokyo. Some of you may know me from another forum. Because I am working in a small apartment, I can only use hand tools, such as eggbeater drills, router planes and all the rest. My landlady doesn’t like me making noise and lives right next door.

Therefore, I did a ‘stealth build’. This is a Jazz bass-style, constructed entirely with hand tools, that I was able to throw together at the times when the landlady was out, and, as I used a spraypaint and oil finish, could nip down to the park to apply extra coats. It took a while, but I was able to knock something out.

Anyway, I also put together a video diary of the build, and I hope you don’t mind me posting it here on the TDPRI. It might be of some interest to people working in limited spaces or with limited tools. All nine vids are below, although a demo may follow in a while too, once I actually learn how to play the darn thing:
