2 Cents Worth

"Nice! Got an almost Jethro Tull-like acoustic rock-jazz vibe going on in there! Get some lyrics and turn a band loose on it. To my ears, it's a winner."

Cigar Box Resonator Guitar

"@David David - thanks, but that's ok. I was just curious. I see no point bugging a builder directly unless I'm in the market to buy something from them. Tire kicking was never my forte. Cheers!"

Cigar Box Resonator Guitar

"5-piece laminated set-in neck? Wow! That's not yo' Daddy's CBG. :-)) Sounds and looks great. Dare I ask what something like that goes for?"

Chill Chais

"Really like that almost sitar-like resonance you're coaxing out of it in places. (I'm guessing using a P90 helps a bit?)  Beautiful song too - like most Irish traditional tunes are IMHO. Well done!"

Midlife Crisis (Life Begins at 40) - With recording preamble

"Great song. Love the lyrics, However, if you're saying this at 40 I can safely promise you that once you've added another dozen or so to the tally (like some of us have) you'll have a lot more verses to add to this song! :-))"

eK replied to PKB's discussion Does a fretless bass require a radiused fingerboard? in the group Cigar Box Basses
"Most foils aren't made of magnetic metals. And copper or aluminium foil (the most common types) wouldn't work with magnetic pickups in any case. It would have to be some ferrous metal like nickel, or some combination of the two. I'm…"

eK replied to Wayfinder's discussion How does one make a flat pickup?
"Couldn't agree more. There is no great mystery to any of this. Or impossible to discover "secrets." It's just intro-level physics and basic electrical theory. The inner workings of guitar pickups are pretty well known by…"

Turtles All The Way Down

"Terry Pratchette would agree. It's the basis for Discworld which floats through an improbable universe on the back of "The Great Atuin - the Cosmic Turtle." Great performance too!"

Subtle Raveesh By Gary Knight (EHX Ravish Sitar)

"LOL! If you like those, be sure to also take a look at the Organizer pedal by Earthquaker Devices too. Similar idea but with a very different implementation and approach. Good demo of it here."

Subtle Raveesh By Gary Knight (EHX Ravish Sitar)

"Really like that. BTW - I've been doing everything in my power not to buy a Ravish Sitar pedal since I have more important things I really should be spending money on. This video is not helping. ;-))"

eK - thanks for the friend request.  I'll have lot's of questions being that I've never made a bass (made a few CBG's) and I don't even play one!  Right now I'm just in the info-gathering stage.

It's all good eK, I still have the Keef on the shelf.  I wanted to get some more builds under my belt before I finished it.  I think it's about time...
