Do you realize a small child working in a sweat shop in a third world country probably has a greater hourly earnings potential than a large child building cigar box guitars for resale in the US of A....:)
You must have a secondary income, because I can't pay my bills on "Magic".
Sadly we have folks in this trade that earn their living doing other things, then build CBG's and sell them at ridiculously low prices. They are dreadfully unaware of how free market capitalism works (or simply don't give a damn).
I suspect the following if the driving force behind the birth of most cbgs
Son: Why are you in the garage dad?
Father: Where is your mother?
Son: In the house dad
Father: That's why I'm in the garage.
I have only sold several...but when someone ask me for a discount I say....at my price I am only making about 15 cents an hour...now you are asking me to work for 10 cents a hour...lol
You can make a small fortune building and selling cbg's. You just have to start with a large fortune.
