My question is straight forward for any of you that do market places or shows to sell your guitars. How many guitars do you bring with you to do a show? Thanks for all who answer.Continue

Finally got around to posting the new build made with the help from George McLeod

He let me use his tools and CNC machine to inlay the head stock. He said he needed to pay me back for some help I gave him but I think I still owe him for all his help.

WOW is right - destruction is amazing and sad - fortunately so far no loss of life.

Thoughts are with fellow Canadiens (Ontario and Quebec) in the path of whats being called "Tornado of Apocalyptic destruction ". from Ottawa to Gatineau , and headed for Montreal. YOUTUBE VIDEOS ARE COMING IN OF THE DESTRUCTION .. WOW ..
We are fine and safe where we are . it basicly started here as a storm , and gained strength as it traveled . STAY SAFE FOLKS .

Any Canadian members in the Grey Bruce Owen Sound area of Ontario? Maybe even Huron Perth and west Simcoe?

I found a supplier in Canada (Ontario) for electronic components, such as capacitors, 1/4" jacks and plugs. I needed capacitors to reduce feedback and noise from the piezos as per Ben and Glenn on cigarboxguitar.com. My small community lacks any sort of electronic supply shop. www.nettyelectronics.com (Earl Andrews) had the parts I wanted, good prices, and fast (arrived in two days). He charges postage but not handling fees. He does not have piezos.

hi Peggy . as per your question,  it is best to reply to posts from  the CANADIAN  CLUB  here, just like you  posted the  first one below .  it will just show up ontop of the list  , not as a reply under a specific member .  There is no real  reply button , just  post again  . (you can address  the member in your first line  as i just did . 

as for the rest on the nation . or folks  on here also . if you wish to post a private message  , you must first friend request them  , and they must accept . or accept a  friend request from them .  then you can send  private  "emails"  through cbn  , from their  page  , or just by clicking on their name in a post . 

you can also leave a comment on their page as you did earlier to another member , but  these are not private . 

hope that helps .
