I do not know if this is the place to ask this. I can not upload photos. I have tried every way bet to no avail. The page tells me that I have 10 downloads left and I try to upload and it shows the files being uploaded but they are not there.

Thanks

Welcome Edgel/Maximo.

Comment by Edgel R Gillespie II on May 13, 2018 at 2:06pm

Hello and Good Day, to Dennis and the gang, Welcome to the set and I'm rather slow at getting things done. Too many projects, and not enough time. We live in the high plains desert of Utah, USA, just N.E. of the Great Salt Lake. I repair amps and help fix guitars for my friends. Still have not started my own CBG yet, I have plans to make my own box, since I can't find anything I like.

So welcome again. Maximo

Paul Craig, this one is a Roswell brand neck position pickup,

I threw a neck position burstbucker pro (Gibson) in a lap-slide, but flipped it and installed in in bridge position. that tone rocked as well, so I may try that on the next CBG.

Welcome guys, building your own can be addictive. May you never recover. Haha

Love the sound of Filtertrons Rowdy. What brand are they?

Hello! Quick intro note, 'cause it's the same, familiar story ...

I'm a decades-long guitarist who got sucked into this crazy DIY musicianship. I've been lurking the site for years grabbing build tidbits. I'm amazed at how much knowledge I've gained... then after I actually started one, amazed again as to how much I didn't know.

I've only built 2 completely so far.. but, I'm currently in the middle of a 10-CBG crazy experiment where each is deliberately built differently.

I'm going to make MY instrument.

Cheers!

Hello, Rowdy here from the NW (USA).

Been a blues player for years.. Got into lapsteels some 2 years ago, and now CBGs. I'm hooked! I have build #1 down and playable now.

Here is a clip of the first build's tone... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tq8YU5Mx7Rg

I now know why the vol and tone knobs should always be at the bottom... LOL.. keep hitting it and turning it down, so for now, I took the knobs off the post. Looked at every video Shane has posted. Scored my #2 box today.. We'll get started.. Honored to be here...
