Cereal Box Guitar, CBG, see what I did there?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Bluesheart Jan 27. 5 Replies

SO just for fun I thought  I would make a Cereal Box Guitar out of the big boxes we get at BJ's, but I want to also wood grain the box. So by the time I buy wood graining tools, two colors of paint,…Continue

Will automotive aftermarket speakers work well with the little battery powered amp circuits? I see them all the time at thrift shops for cheap, but the usually have really high wattage ratings. Will…Continue

"It plays clean but pretty modest volume straight in, but with a pedal as a preamp you get both a boost in volume and the effect of the pedal."

This thing

Posted on February 20, 2013 at 7:30am 7 Comments

I guess as far as addictions go this is not a bad one to have. I had surgery yesterday morning and was in the cellar laying out out a rat rod build last night. Now I'm up early and since I'm off work, guess what I'm anxious to get back to??  I don't have much in the way of power tools so not too concerned about being doped up a bit, feeling creative somehow.

Good Morning Bluesheart

Hey man great music - nice vocals and playing - wanted to say Thank You for your comment on the changes made to Black Brick House due to Uncle John's suggestion - I really appreciate all you guys and your constructive criticism and good eyes 

At 1:34pm on August 6, 2016, Michael Lohrengel said…

Thank you for the comment Bluesheart, if you check the latest photos of the Black Brick House you will see a great improvement as I took Uncle Johns suggestion to heart and made the necessary change to the bridge support and it changed the whole dynamics/looks of the build to a much cleaner and better looking CBG - Glad to hear you are doing ok after the heart attack - just took a look through your pictures - you do some nice work and the songs you do are good as well - have a great day

Thanks Bluesheart. I'm having a ton of fun building these things!

Hey Bh, I don't know about impedance, but they make a pill for that. I have a very basic understanding of electronics, I read this instructable:

http://m.instructables.com/id/Convert-Any-Radio-Into-a-Guitar-Amp/

. It's pretty easy as long as the radio has a volume "pot" and not micro switches. It's such a cool, easy thing to do. And its seemless, you barely notice the jack. It's cool that the radio will still work normally too!

Thanks Bluesheart,it turned out well considering I picked up the wrong can and sprayed it gloss black instead of clear lacquer

Hi Bluesheart. Well I just came to check out your page after seeing you around the site and wow you've got some awesome music. Great harmonica, really strong vocals and, of course, that CBG rounds everything off and ties it together wonderfully. Lovely stuff indeed. Thanks for sharing with us :)
