Hey Josh. I'm a fellow CBG enthusiast in the Inland Valley. Just wanted to stop by and say I admire what you have done with your Smokehouse guitars. I've read a lot of your tips in the forums on 6-string cbg's and am getting ready to start building my first. Anyways, looking foward to see more of your work. Keep on building!!

Thanks for the invite, Josh. I'm always open to learning something new from another builder. I'm usually playing catch up as I don't get to the shop as much as I like.
