Hello again! Many thanks for the great advice. I've got more questions...
I'm building my first 4 stringer. I have a humbucker pick up. I'm considering a fretted neck board. I'd like to use a slide and the frets.
What is a viable action height?
As always Any input is greatly appreciated!
Today I finished my Diddley bow, a quick DIY project made from an old plank, an empty jar, a few bolts that I found in the cupboard, a left over machine head, and a piezo disk.
I yet have to figure out how to make it…Continue
Hey everyone I was one of the designated picture takers. As I was riding home on the train my camera and all my memory cards flew out the window and ran over by the caboose. Darn. I need a favor......I know there was hundreds of you all at this years virtual event. PLEASE dress back up in your beach gear and your favorite git. Send a pic to Richard Sundberg, UJ , or myself. I know there were others who were taking pictures too, I will get ahold of them. Come on let's make the most…Continue
from wireless earphones.Anyone managed to make this work.Earphones can be turned into microphones and this would stop the player being t ethered to their amp.I have seen wireless earphones for sale and wonder if they could work.
IMHO the best resource of fingerpicking and clawhammer uke books for someone who wants to learn finger picking. Logical and clear structured books with very good arrangements/ tabs.
Several years I have used these. I'm Aarons virtual student, but probably he does not know that :)
Do sound holes on an electrified cigar box guitar really make a difference in how it sounds, or is it just for looks?
Well that didn't take to long. I was close to what I thought I wanted to do with the box, Gold hardware it is.
This will be my first non neck thru box, everything I have built up to now I used neck through construction. Also doing a mag pickup with this one. Which means cutting the top for a pickup along with using a hard tail bridge. A styled head stock which I have already started on. This may be more than I can handle in one setting.
Well as my…Continue
Lost two friends today within 24 hours. One was a well known rockabilly guitarist and bass player for Danny Gatton and the Fat Boys. Billy Hancock used to come to my gigs and be real supportive of what I was playing.
The second friend was less well known but we played gigs together since we were teenagers. Here's to you Chuck B

Does anyone know of any sites that offer printable cigar box art or labels? I have 2 plain boxes and am looking for ideas. Kind of thinking of something vintage looking that I could glue on the top and then verathane over it.
Just wondering if I'm crazy or it's just a CBG thing. I buy a box then wait for it's design, anybody else do that? I know waiting on a box to tell you what it wants is a bit left field. Example, I picked up this sweet black Monte box the other day and I was thinking how sweet it would look with all gold hardware, ebony neck with a poplar fret board, gold frets, and gold fret dots. But for the likes of myself I can't seem to bring myself to cut this box yet. I've taped the ends three times…Continue
I have just finished my latest build. There is still some work to do, like lowering the action etc, but I have stringed it and tested it. I only had the 4-5-6 strings from a kit for electric guitar which I tried on. It is a short scale length, only 18", so the tuning that works best with these strings is CGC.
I am satisfied this far but will keep tweaking the build. Adding a pick-up of course and maybe get other strings. …Continue
