Here's a pic of my first attempt at a CBG.  I built this at a workshop by a local guy Cigarbox Sounds.  Great workshop and I came away with a playable fretless CBG.

I've a feeling this may get addictive............

Yeah Lonman, sanded, blowtorch which seemed to dry the wood and darken the grain then a good drink of stain (not sure what colour, just what was handy).

yes, yes, I especially like the way the neck turned out. What was done to that to achieve the color? Stain, random blowtorches? Love it.

Thanks Korrigan, it was a bit of a leap of faith when Scott who was running the workshop suggested taking a blowtorch to the neck i'd just finished sanding but it does give an interesting finish.
