I am currently deployed to Afghanistan and the other day I came across a soldier picking on a CBG. I sat down and picked a little back and forth. He told me about this website where I could get one so here I am. I am in the Mississippi National Guard and would love to have a CBG to pick on if there is a person kind enough to build me one.
Welcome to the Nation and thank you for your service. Check back here and we will see if we can't fix you up with one.
Thank you sir you have no idea what this means to me.
And an amp if that isn't to much.
Franklin! I'd build one for you, but I have no workshop anymore. My community woodshop has closed down for a bit, but should be back up by fall. There are nefarious rumors that it might even open up this summer, but we'll have to see.
So if no one else steps forward by then, I can do it -- but it will be a bit of a wait. :-(
Franklin, I would be honored to build a guitar for you. I did not realize that you had not been matched yet. Unfortunately, I can't do the amp but I can put a piezo rod pickup in it. I really appreciate the service you are doing for our country.
It's no problem, and thank you. is there anything you need from me?
I just need some time to build it but I have all the needed materials. It will take 3-4 weeks to finish. Then I will figure out how to get it to you.
If you accept my friend request here, you can communicate with me directly. If you are interested I can also send you pictures of the progress. I am very excited about doing this.
Dan, we have a match.
It occurred to me that should ask you if you are right or left handed.
Good news! I will be able to get you an amp also. Many of my coworkers are supporting the effort so we can go beyond the basics.
