Definition of industry =economic activity concerned with the processing of raw materials and manufacture of goods in factories.
i think CBG makers would fall into what would be called a "Cottage Industry"
Maybe it is already. I found this.
they obviously didnt make much money from this. that article is 4 years old. the ebay seller no longer has them listed and checking the ebay store and what they have listed . they sell lots of musical instruments and accessories but only 3 CBG items all of them tail pieces.
The CBG in question was also a Uke...
I agree ,like I stated before If money can be made.Bigger players will enter the market.
Looks like that uke is still available.
I think it will all boil down to if they can make money producing and selling.If the big producers see dollars.Then mass production most likely would start.Up to now I am not aware of a Fender or Gibson CBG.
After thinking about it a little more, I think it is a small industry..
