Ok Justin :)

Comment by Justin Everett Rice on October 6, 2010 at 9:25am
Jarmo, morro
Yeah my Finnish typing is not so good, but I can say it. It was American slang that I brought to my Finnish friends and we translated it.

Hi Justin

Well Forssa is not far away from here where i live, place name is Lieto, it is about 70km to Turku from Forssa.

Judge Bone a.ka. Hannu "Tuomari" Nurmio.
I saw some pictures from him and his guitar looks like CBG.

:D What is that ?

" Mita, onko sulla heikka pillusa? "
Somebody told you that Finnish aphorism?
I have never heard it, but it is quite fun :)

Little correction:

it is going in Finnish " Mitä, onko sinulla hiekkaa pillussa? "
and if you not know what that word means in English ....

"What, do you have sand in your pussy? "

:D

I was an exchange student living in Forssa, Finland in 2000. I went back to visit friends in 2008 and saw Judge Bone play in Helsinki, I am pretty sure he was playing a 6 string cigar box. Since then I have been obsessed.
Mita, onko sulla heikka pillusa?

Hi, Jonny!
I bought my first CBG from Jarmo Katajisto. Now I have built my first box guitar and next 2 are waiting to start building... :-)) Yes, this is fun and some day I will make real CBG!

Kiitokset sinulle myös Tomas K. Mukava myös nähdä että ryhmä on saanut uuden jäsenen.

Bridge ja nut vaativatkin varmaan pientä säätö, oman maun mukaan.

Blues onkin siis hauskaa ja iloa tuottavaa musiikkia :)

ps. kohta valmistuu seuraava versio, siihen tuleekin enemmän tavaraa sisälle.
Tupla JJB pietzot+ volume+tone+ nauhat jne jne. Laitan senkin Huutonettiin muiden mukaan.

Finally got my Vox da5! Nice sounding little amp, also lightweight which is great cause hauling around my vox ac15 tubeamp was a pain in the ass although it sounds amazing. Modified Jarmos' guitar slightly by filing down the bridge and nut to my liking, nevertheless a quality build all the way, eli iso kiitos Jarmolle, hauskoja soittelutuokioita on ollut ja kitara herättää hilpeyttä ja mielenkiintoa itsessä ja kanssaihmisissä joka kerta kun sillä soittaa :D

My family was from sweden ... back in the 1800's. I went to school on Oland. I attended CapellaGarden (a Carl Malmsten school). And attained my Gasellbrev under the very helpful teachings of Karl Magnus Persson, and Bengt Lundgren. Two very talented and gifted woodworkers. I now live and work as a furniture maker and custom woodworker in Central California. Just 45 minutes south of San Francisco. I play drums and bass, and am trying now to break into guitar making...

There are several places in CA that are named after scandinavian towns too.

No problem Todd, nice to see you in here. You live in Kalifornia USA and your family is from Sweden, am i right?
