Hi all;

Am an Arky at this point but Colorado native for my 1st 45 years.  Hometown is Greeley and spent many years working in Ft. Collins and Loveland.  Sure miss the trails there, used to skate them for hours after work.  Have been making cbg's and custom pieces in the cigar box style.  Loving life here in the "Shire",  I often think about starting a festival here, but sounds like too big of a project for me at this point in life.  We have a great ampitheater at the Passion Play that holds a couple thousand people which would be the perfect venue for an event.  Maybe someday.  You can see some of my guitars on Facebook Studio62.biz.   Am looking forward to make some new Colo. connections.  Who knows, there might even be someone I worked with that now builds cbg's.

Testing, testing...

Anybody out there?

Comment by Alan Hergert on October 25, 2016 at 12:14pm

Anyone up for some plucking this Saturday, October 29th?

There is a car show in Littleton, CO at Powderhorn Park - 11501 W Coal Mine Ave (Simms and Coal Mine) from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

I am planning to be there with a guit or two just making some music.

Come by if you can!

Looks pretty quiet in this neck-o-the-woods but I figured I'd give a shout out to other Colorado loc's.

 I've finished one CBG (don't know why it took so long, wanted to for years) and should be wrapping up another tomorrow.

 Parts on order for a bass...

Thanks, Tommy.  Nice to know I'm not alone.  ;)

I don't know of anything. I have done a little at the Mini Maker Faires, but nothing too serious.

Comment by Alan Hergert on January 18, 2016 at 6:09pm

Is there anything happening CBG-wise in Colorado?

Just curious.

Comment by Tommy Phillips on November 10, 2014 at 6:39pm

I have been on the Nation for a while; I don't know why it took me so long to wonder if there was a Colorado group.
