So I know I haven't been real active on the site lately. There is a good reason :)
I have been graced with an order for 10 guitars, 2 Ukes, and at least (but not limited to) 3 portable CBG amps! Pictures will be posted as soon as I have a break to take them, lol. as always, ANY advice is appreciated!
Even though I have only made 2 CBGs so far, I am somehow bolstered enough to want to try the electric version. Is there anything I need to know that I might be overlooking? I mean...it seems pretty simple to me, so I pretty much figure I'm leaving something out, lol. Anyone that wants to chime in with advice or let me in on any mistakes I can avoid, your experience is MOST welcome!
While another woodworking project had been occupying my bench, I began to learn more about what not to do than anything else. I decide to ask around at some local hobby shops for some advice and came up pretty much empty. What I DID find yesterday was an amazing new shop in town that is for nothing BUT woodworking! Holy snappin' crap, what I never knew! LOL. I spent at least 2 hours in there talking to the attendants and discussing all things…Continue
So I found an incredible piece of flamed maple...I can't decide whether to slice it up for fingerboard veneer or make a couple complete necks out of it. I'm really having touble with the decision, lol. I konw what box /boxes I'm going to apply it to though and they look amazing in my mind's eye...here's to hoping they live up to their potential!
