Hello Bluesdog. I am not sure, but I am assuming the guitars are being manufactured in China. I have some knowledge of this. Start up cost for the design and prototype can be in the $10,000 range to manufacture a guitar. Full size guitars that may sell for $500 can then be produced for about $100 each. Besides raising the money, the work is in the promotional advertising and distribution to sell enough units to pull a good profit. I agree with you. Using the internet to get "donations" to start a business with a slick promotional campaign is truly the most interesting part of this presentation. Taking a CBG type idea to market is a promising concept. No major manufacture is producing a 3 string instrument commercially "yet". Thank you for your comment. Enjoy.
Thanks for the comments on the Tricone Video - i have added another video which is a few Clips of BB Redshaw playing it acoustic - the last clip is a short part of his new tune Streets On Fire which was shown in the previous video but plugged in
Hey Dog not seen you around for ages mate hope all is good for you ? - thank you for your great comments on my Tricone build i really appriciate it bro
yes you are right the Reso cones are 4" not 6" i spun them myself so i could make the tricone a bit smaller - using 6" cones would have made the box way too big and if i was going down that route i may aswell have just made a regular Reso shape guitar which i did not want i wanted to keep the CBG look
Thank you Bluesdog for responding. Please do me a favor and contact John directly at his Youtube page. I am sure he would be interested in hearing your suggestions. Additionally, if you know any other builders who might be interested, ask them to contact John too. I want to supply John with options, so the arrangement between him and the builder is a good fit. I believe this will be a great promotional opportunity for CBG Nation and the builder' instruments. Enjoy.
Thank you Bluesdog for your comment. I am not sure of the maker either, but when I see that star in the headstock, vintage Washburn is the first thing to come to mind. Yes, she sure is a sweet guitar. Enjoy.
Thank you for your comment. Well, that 3 string is not your ordinary CBG. Jimmy Millinchuk built that baby. It is really a minture guitar. He built the box too. It has a cedar top and is braced just like a full size guitar. It rings forever. Utilizing the A,D, and g strings from a standard pack of medium strings is what gives it the power. If I used the treble strings it would not be the same. So how it set up now works best for bass and rhythm. Happy Holidays my friend. Enjoy.
