CHAP'S STIK CBG PROJECTS

CHAP'S STIK #2: Just completed Chap's Stik No. 2. It's a 3-string with a fretless red oak 25" scale neck. Since I took the photos I've switched out the nut and bridge to a section of brass bolt in order to lower the action. I put a piezo inside but it isn't picking up much of the vibrations. Need to replace and relocate it.

Planer/Joiner

Posted on January 23, 2013 at 11:55am 6 Comments

Took a hard look at surface planeres and planer/joiners this morning at Lowe's and decided that I have no real justification for spending money on either. I could buy a lot of 1/4" and 3/4" dimensional lumber for $500. Maybe I can pickup a bargain at an auction this summer. 

Cigar Box Source...Columbus, OH

Picked up 13 great boxes for $3 each at Royal Tobacco, 4700 Cemetery Rd., Hilliard, OH. They had a ton of them and it's the best variety I've found since I began building CBGs. 

Rebuild of Chap's Stik #2

Posted on December 29, 2012 at 7:13am 3 Comments

Now that I know more I'm going to rebuild the second CBG I built. It was  an unfretted 3-string with a piezo that didn't work. So I've decided to replace a new piezo, round over the back sides of the neck, insert a more efficient and better looking nut, and install frets at the 3, 5, 7, 10,  octave, etc. New strings and tuned to GDG. I was going to use it as a wall hanger but it sounds real good so I decided to try to save it. It can always hang on a wall later. 

CBGs for Xmas

I gifted my first diddley bow to our son in law who is a huge fan of early raw Delta blues. The first 2-string went to our son who has been playing around with guitars for several years. So, on Christmas Eve we had ourselves a little family jams band. Great fun and everyone was excited with their gifts.
