Just finished a new piezo pickup. Its sandwiched between pieces of wood veneer and shielded with aluminum foil. Can't wait to put it in the six-string CBG I'm building !

Started my second build. I am using parts of a cheep-o electric guitar I had in the back of the closet. More to come soon!

Basically using the tutorial found here to build my first CBG. So far so good. Have made a few mistakes but nothing that can't be fixed. Did ruin one box by not double checking my measurements. Forgot to make fret markers and cut a nut slot before adding a sealer. Guess will add all that, sand her up some and add another coat of sealer. Overall though I am pretty happy with how it's coming along.…Continue
I'm still accepting cigar box guitar-related items (cigar box guitars, cigar box guitar music or instructional CDs or DVDs--anything!) from my cigar box guitar brothers and sister who would care to donate such things for items for drawing during the Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. All proceeds go to Benefit the Kansas City Blues Society's Blues in the Schools program--a worthy cause!
Thanks for caring!

Its's 5.30am here so this is a bit Ruff. But wanted to share - not sure if you can here it in this but the cookie tin creates some amazing overtones.
Have a great day/night where ever you are
So I have a pretty confusing house in the morning. I share space with my wife and our two young daughters, age 6 and 3. While I take all of 20 minutes to prepare myself for the day, they all take some extra maintenance time. I guess I can't buzz their hair off with the clippers like I do mine. :(
Anyway, I'm also the chef of the house so I prepare breakfast and pack whatever lunches need to be made for the day. We're out the door by 8:00 to drop off at daycare, summer…Continue
:) So I'm not the newest CBN millionaire. :)
I visited my parents this weekend and my Dad asked if I wanted an old trumpet I had played in 4th Grade. It had been in the family for awhile and I decided to take it. While that was being dug out, I asked about an old violin I remembered from when I was a kid. I never heard anyone play it, but sort of remembered it being in OK condition from the view of a 7 year old boy snooping around the closets for Christmas…Continue
While building guitars for the troops, I've finally completed one for myself.
'The Chief' is a 4-string electro/acoustic tenor guitar with a GuitarFuel on-board amp with tone and volume controls, ear bud jack, and speakers built into the body.
The design was inspired by an old radio I found at a yard sale. Maple front and back are joined with mahogany one-piece sides and back panels, walnut neck and maple fretboard make up the woodwork. Corian nut…Continue
Gots some new ink this weekend.
