BenBob - Yes, this is my design. Originally, I used it on my 6 string CBG with the large box. Then Darren Dukes of Back Porch Mojo, designed this Keni Lee Signature model 3 string CBG. He made 20 and they sold quickly. Currently, he is still building sporadically, but working and earning a living has got in his way. LOL Enjoy.

After our chat about the problem with scattered topics and FAQ's the other day, I decided to start a new group In hopes of getting some of this information in a central location.
