just thought I would introduce myself on the forum
I make and play guitars of a sort , namely cigar box guitars also with three strings
Im here because I came across a shamisen , (yes you guessed right ) on ebay and I couldn’t resist the urge to buy it ,theres just something to that sound that draws you in.
Anywho’s ,it does need repair , needs reskining missing the bachi and the bridge , sorry havn’t got the terminology weighed up yet, nothing that I cant tackle .
I’ve been browsing the forum very interesting .
I’ll post some pics later of what needs to be done.
I admire your bravery to “just do it” I think you’ll be very happy, shamisen are awesome instruments.
Bridge = koma; you can learn all the terminology by checking out the free crash course in the Bachido schoolhouse.
Thanks for the directions, I’m still fumbling around the site to find what I’m looking for.
