Yes! I watched that one! That guy is funny when he throws the tuner lol! I bought a “normal” amp to test instruments and I was like, yeah should just build one! But I need a good baseline to see what things sound like. I have this broken plastic toy uke I put a mic in and it sounds the same on the amp as it does on a Sony karaoke machine haha!

CBGs are fun to make and play.  Home made boxes are good.

Thanks John! Yeah I will keep this one fretless. I was taking a break from making sculpture and printmaking and tinkering around I’m always listening to music in the shop. I was like, why WOULDN’T I build something that makes sound or emits light?! I don't currently have any cigar boxes and I am not a musician so I just started building with parts around my shop and then found you guys and books and websites lol! I plan on using four strings and tuners, pre amp with Rod Piezo and maybe magnetic pickup and anything else I can jam in there!

Looks very good.  Will you keep it fretless?   If you do, check out some lessons under Resources at page too.  I would start with one called knotlenny's cbg 101.
