New: i restarted the AI projects with a an exercise in Reinforcement Learning using a very low cost caterpillar based robot, Raspberry PI and this stage only ultrasonic range detection and the tiny PiCamera. The robotic platform works, but still plodding on slowly with the RL Markov algorythms and the neural network to recognize a simple picture from the Picam. I need to learn AI on the road. See the ai.html page.
The guitar building books on Amazon Kindle as eBook
My books are also available on Amazon Kindle for half the price of a hardcopy book, more if you take transport in to account (shipping is rather expensive, to say the least). The big difference is the printing cost of colour paperbacks. Ebook pixels are basically for free. Have a look.

About Guitars Recycled
Guitars Recycled happened more or less by accident.
After managing IT departments for a long time I retired in 2004 and decided to enjoy myself building guitars from cannibalised components you can find on the net.
In the process I made many notes on Strats, Teles and PBasses. So i decided to dump these into a series of small books, (hopefully) useful to other first time builders.
I wrote the books; 3 in english and 3 in dutch and started selling them with modest success - wont make me rich but its fun as well.
After a while and lots of questions from customers i decided to start doing workshops where we build and setup a guitar of choice in about four hours.
