Yeah it's pretty cool I've been looking for a couple of old plates myself.i know what you mean about getting side tracked I'm working on a few cbg atm in my spare time we cut 6 knecks and fret boards recently as well as picked up some cool boxes and things... oh man the addiction is setting in I think (hello my name is Chris and I'm a cbg
addict) is horrible but fun at same time lol

Well, I just noticed your friend request. Yes I go to the club meetings at the 61 Roadhouse but only very infrequently. Does your son go there, and if so what's his name?

Darryl, I was able to messenger Rob, and he responded with his e=mail address and phone number.  Thanks for responding to my request.

I'm very new to cigar box guitars, trying to find the above average budders. I want to buy my first then try my hand a building them.

Thanks,   Bill

Craiglist story

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 1:50am 4 Comments

I'm a Craiglist free stuff addict....Saw a radial arm saw listed...But by the time I found the house...It was gone...Get an email two days later saying guy never showed up....It was mine if I wanted it....That made my day....Will come in handy for cutting fret slots..Gave the guy some cash for his time and effort...Still made out pretty good on the deal

finger joint jig

gotta love it when you spend a few hours making a finger joint jig, and just about the time that you think that its running good, the index pin snaps off...hopefully the glue joint repair will hold up...oh well, enough whining for now

license plate guitar

Posted on August 15, 2016 at 12:52am 3 Comments

just finished my first license plate guitar...guess what i ran into most is, body brace blocks getting in way of input jacks. or the pickup cavity cutting in too deep into the neck . already started on 2nd one, gave the first one away for a birthday gift.
