hi all , newbie here from the UK , been thinkin about building a CBG , been Googling looking for info and happened across this place so I thought I'd join up , I've made a couple of simple diddley bows in the past but i want to move on to a cigar box one when I find a box that takes my fancy ( got my eye on a few on the bay ) then move on to a 3 string and from there who knows . I help out a friend of mine with his carpentry and woodturning buisness from time to time so I have access to a fully kitted out workshop and he's built a few guitars in the past so he has a bit of knowledge in this area I can tap into . as for playing I have had a go at the guitar with limited success so I switched to bass , much more my thing , never played in a band or anything like that but used to do jam nights at the local pub and stuff like that , but haven't played in maybe 10 years .
Welcome Simon! I'm new to this myself too, but you will find lot's of info here, and lot's of knowledgable people willing to help if you need it. Have fun!!
Cheers Gary , still trying to navigate my way around the site , lots of places I've not been yet , been looking at a load of pics for inspiration , take about a week to get through them all though , and checking out the building tips and stuff .
