Heya! Did my first build about 5 months ago with the very talented CBG Maker Chris Mitchell of Beechmont.
I've now been assimiliated!
I had the box for about a year and a half, just dreaming about it....
Went to visit Chris just to see if the bits and pieces I had collected would work.
He ended up spending a whole weekend with me on the build in his shed with his cool tools and lotsa cold beverages Ha ha!!!!
She a 4 string and is not finished yet but very playable. I have some gold butterflies for the sound holes and a gold plate that I want to use as a resonator. She will be very pretty then, bit scared to muck with her now.
What is most amazing is that she talks. She has like this wah wah sound and it only happens after I've been playing for about half an hour. I wonder whether any one else has that.
I'm more of a singer than a guitarist, so for the past few months I've been converting a lot of my favorite songs over to the cbg. My favourite song to sing on her atm is Ride on Josephine by George Thorogood. Oh yeh! Gotta love George!
