First CBG Design/build

Posted on March 1, 2014 at 4:26pm 3 Comments

Almost finished my first (non-kit) CBG of my own design.  It's a fretted three-string, and will likely end up with a piezo-pickup option.  Have not used any fret markers yet, nor cut any sound holes.  Tone actually seems pretty OK with no holes, and it's a really clean look.

thanks Gary for the comments ,its a dutch cigar tin, from a old city near mine cald KAMPEN,the factory is gone ,the tin was from my dad, he used it for fisching gear, i safe it for a long time, but the other week i dicided to turn it in to a cigartin guitar its 3 string and it sounds pretty twangy on the lookout for a good tune to make a audio vid for play on the Nation,so more will come, on the little pictures if you zoom in there is a black &white of the people in the factory its the only picture i was able to find on the subject the stick is from france the flower piucture is from the name of the crubbery in latin,thanks again for asking Greeeeeettsszzz A.D.

Thanks for the friends request Gary, accepted with pleasure.

I've been involved with a national classic off road motorcycle club in the UK for many years and helped set up their internet forum, on which I was also a moderator for a long time.....Let me tell you that I've had more warmth and response in one day on this excellent site than in a long time on there.....and I've given blood, believe me......

I feel honoured to be a new member of this fine community...it's a breath a fresh air in a crazy world....

Thanks again Gary, delighted to swap a few lines with you today.

Brian.

You busted my gut with that comment about termites and when I looked at the pic I could see what you were talking about in your humorous sarcastic funny ass manner - damn my friend no wonder i enjoy working with you so much in the CBG world.
