I swear I saw a question from you on the friend request, but I'll be damned if I can find it now.

Thanks Darryl! The Camacho box was a yard sale find. This is build #22.

Hi Darryl, already made a one stringer out of a cigar box and sledgehammer handle. I’ve also made a 3 stringer shovel guitar. I’ve started makeing a fretted 3 stringer Camacho cbg. Also got plans for a fretless cbg when my beef and sheep hill farm here in Wales allows me.

  Thanks.,  Will be starting my first build as soon as all the hardware arrives.  Looking forward to building then learning to play.

Thanks Darryl.

Still trying to learn to play them. But I'm already much better than I ever was on a six string.

Thanks for the Friend request Darryl. Ive built a few, turned out to be pieces of junk.. then suddenly you string it up.. plug it in.. and its starting to play. I cant really play.. but that's the beauty of CBG's.. they don't care.. just play anyway!!!

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

Posted on September 4, 2016 at 12:01am 0 Comments

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.
