Brick House 6 String CBG Sound Check

"Sounds great. Better than great. Looks so cool too. I bet he's over the moon with it and getting all his mates interested. Give it a couple of weeks and you'll be snowed under with orders for them.  I'd never thought about…"

Brick House 6 String CBG Sound Check

"Janis, the water based contact cement I bought was Weldwood in a green can. I got it at one of the big box stores. The red can Weldwood contact cement is not water based and won't work with PSV. You can buy PSV online or at wood workers shops."

"And here's some info on the preamp. You can always build an outboard preamp box instead of building it into the guitar so that you can use the box with multiple guitars. I've switched to that approach for rod piezo builds that…"

Making music on an instrument you made yourself is magical! I'm a sculptor by profession and love making things by hand. Took bass lessons in high school then learned rhythm guitar about 18 years ago. Just started building CBGs for fun last year. Now I can't stop.

My first solo build - and first post

Posted on January 2, 2016 at 10:54am 20 Comments

After designing a few CBGs and lap diddley bows that my husband brought to life with power tools, I made my first solo creation this week, and I'm smitten with my guitar style diddley bow. 

While I've made 2 lap diddley bows and 4 CBGs…

Thank you for the friend request Janis! Definitely some guitar & cbg action slated for this weekend. Happy Friday to you as well!

Thanks for the friend add Janis. We'll look forward to more inspiring stuff from you. Have a great day.

nice work.

I think a couple of things are at work in you making top content. First it's a very cool first solo build and your playing is great for just starting to play slide. Another thing, that we've discussed among ourselves, is the large number of old, retired, greybeards around here. For a lot of us it's wonderful to see someone who doesn't fit that description and has obvious enthusiasm for homemade music. 

Oh, I'm glad you liked the  U bass!

At 2:04pm on January 4, 2016, Jim Morris said…

Hey Janis, you made the top content section on your first vid! Good stuff!

Good to have you as a friend on the Nation...........we can all see what a great addition you will be to our group ;-)

Hey Janis, this is the super short scale U-Bass.

I spent a bit of time today looking at some of your pottery/stoneware vids. Excellent stuff! After looking at you ceramic djembe it got me thinking about a ceramic banjo. Wouldn't be too different from the drum, it would just have to have a hole for the neck to pass thru and a small hole on the opposite end to secure the neck with a screw. That would be a pretty cool combination of your skills.
