I don't know Ed, but I think he goes to my church. A gal I play music with is a Hoffman and said she knows an Ed Hoffman who is tall and skinny. I think they are related.

Hi Darryl, My first friend also. I'm not sure what you mean. I will look tomorrow at my saw to see if I can figure out what you mean. :O)

Thanks for the friendship Darryl, Dalmation was best dog i ever had!

Thank you, Darryl. I found the CBNation site while looking up how-to pages and tutorials. I'm planning on making a resonator when I have the time (which will hopefully be this Easter).

Darryl, I was able to messenger Rob, and he responded with his e=mail address and phone number. Thanks for responding to my request.
I'm very new to cigar box guitars, trying to find the above average budders. I want to buy my first then try my hand a building them.
Well, I just noticed your friend request. Yes I go to the club meetings at the 61 Roadhouse but only very infrequently. Does your son go there, and if so what's his name?

Thanks for the Friend request Darryl. Ive built a few, turned out to be pieces of junk.. then suddenly you string it up.. plug it in.. and its starting to play. I cant really play.. but that's the beauty of CBG's.. they don't care.. just play anyway!!!
Dec 25, 2017
Still trying to learn to play them. But I'm already much better than I ever was on a six string.
Jan 2, 2018
Thanks., Will be starting my first build as soon as all the hardware arrives. Looking forward to building then learning to play.

Hi Darryl, already made a one stringer out of a cigar box and sledgehammer handle. I’ve also made a 3 stringer shovel guitar. I’ve started makeing a fretted 3 stringer Camacho cbg. Also got plans for a fretless cbg when my beef and sheep hill farm here in Wales allows me.

I swear I saw a question from you on the friend request, but I'll be damned if I can find it now.
Feb 7, 2018
Hi back, Darryl. In reply to your comment that ...
> "The resource tab on this site has a great ebook by> Josh gayou on building cbgs..very detailed"
... I'll say that I already downloaded that one ... and several others! I've been pretty busy buying up books on Amazon, and quietly checking stuff out in the "on paper" world. Am checking out online stuff, too ...

Hey Darrly,thanks for friending me.Hmmm never heard it.Most of the loop jams are off the top of my bald head.Who knows where I absorbed that one???
Apr 2, 2018
Thank you so much, Darryl!
May 13, 2018
Thanks for the welcome, Darryl. Much appreciated!
May 14, 2018
And I'd like to add that I totally agree with what your profile says about CBGs being portable, cheap to build, and creative. You can take 'em anywhere, and they cost so little to build that you can try out all kinds of different designs!
May 15, 2018
Thanks for the invite Darryl
Aug 1, 2018
Thanks Darryl,your comment is greatly appreciated
Nov 14, 2018
Thanks for the add. I've already started on number 2 (and 3)!
Nov 20, 2018
Thanks. No, I've never gone to a meeting there. I did stop by the CBG festival there last year. I might have to go check it out sometime.
Apr 3, 2019
Thanks for the invitation, Darryl. I like the bone nuts. I buy the blanks from CB Gitty. I would make my own from dog bones, but I don't have the power tools for the job. I guess a hack saw would work?

Greetings from Missouri!
Thank you sir , fun build
Nov 23, 2019
Thanks for the add. Living in Emporium, PA.
Dec 26, 2019
Thanks for the help offer..I will probably ask questions as I go. I am looking forward to the first build a little later this year.

Thanks for the welcome and accepting me to the Nation. I am currently building a special tele style guitar, but once that is finished, I have been collecting parts for my next cigar box guitar. I used a fender neck on my last build, but think I will try my hand at a home made neck on the next one. Stretching my wings you might say.
Aug 31, 2020
i am absolute beginner, so I just completed 1st build that was a kit by C.B. Gitty. I hope to try the next one on my own. I have a comacho cigar box to use, still planning it out.
Nov 1, 2020
Hi there Daryll I have posted the pic of the only one I have left, will post pictures of the next build. Hope you are all keeping well and safe and keep strumming 3 stringers
Feb 17, 2021
Thanks for your comments Darryl, will post more pics when I finish more of my builds, I love the pics of the cbgs on here, I've got lots to learn.
Feb 21, 2021
Sorry it's taken me 3 years to accept your invite. I've not been making guitars since the Grommit Git and have only just cleared out my workshop to the poiint where I can actually work in it ;-) Discovered a heap of unfinished necks and got the bug again :)
