CBG demo - The River by Bruce Springsteen

This is one of my latest guitar builds. It is an Ashton cigar box with an oak neck and fingerboard, 23 1/2 inch scale length, 4 strings tuned DGBE. Played acoustically.

Thanks Uncle! That harness gets in the way for singing though! I like Warren Zevon a whole lot too, so that is very kind of you to say. :)

Thanks Andries, the oak takes the tung oil well. Yes, Ashton Kutcher is the guy you are thinking of, I like that show, especially Red!

Derek Rose with a harp and harness!    Really good!   I used to love that Boss album, but it made me sad.   Your vocals!  On this one, they remind me of Warren Zevon and that is a very good thing.
