Thanks for your kind words AC. No bracing under top of SmokeRings, but the strings are anchored to the through neck, so the grommets just keep strings from cutting into top.

Thanks AC, glad to know you.Sounds good man. They are a blast to play aren't they?
Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your friend invitation. In the CB realm I mostly build violins (but also a few ukuleles and mandolins). I'll be glad to help if I can. Best Regards, Steven

AC, everyone starts out a "Newbie"..... Ask and ask and ask and when you hear someone ask about something you know about, then give them a hand....

Glad to know you.....

the best,
Wichita Sam

Yep... CBGAS is setting in. Going to meet a cigar store owner tomorrow night, who's set aside some natural wood boxes for me. Got a line on a gritty p90. Can't wait. My daughter may hate me but the little guy will think he's died and gone to heaven. :)

Welcome aboard, AC! You will find lots of helpful folks and information here on all things CBG (CBB, CBU, etc.) Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, videos, etc.).

Most of all, have fun!
