Motorola reverb

"A lot of young people , would never fathom Spring reverb for a car radio, much less, tube radios in a car? There’s also a  control box with two potentiometers that came with it, was that with it? You know if it came from a Ford or a Buick?"

Thanks for your suggestions for making a box.

For power tools, I have two sanders, a circular saw, and a drill. On my first build I used hand saws. I do have a couple of chisels.

I looked up finger joints and that seems doable, practicing on some old wood. I should probably get the minimum kind of power saw.

Thanks!

Hi Darryl, Thanks for the welcome, as requested heres a pic of my 1st CBG. (slide) Bit rough round the edges but sounds pretty good. Will be using in the studio.

Hello Darryl!
Thanks for being the first to welcome me to CBG. I hope to be on here more in less than 6 months when I retire.

Take care,
Jerry

It was on my Christmas list … but … looks like I may have to buy it myself!

Thanks for the welcome, Darryl.

In about 120 working days, I hope to be retired and I really want to do something fun ... like build a CBG!

Thanks! Winter is always a great time to spend time in the shop. Looking forward to learning more about cgb"s. I have a few builds that will be starting this weekend and will be trying a few options...oak neck, maple neck, thru-body (no tailpiece), hinge tailpiece, etc. Will be making stomp boxes as well from smaller boxes. Started to gather up some boxes and am guessing the shelves in the shop will soon be overtaken by boxes.

Sure thing Darryl, thanks for the comment, looking at your photos you have a lot of experience especially in the art, design and detail the wood burning is excellent.

best regards Chris.

Thank you. Yes I am in process of what I think will be a very cool build. Something different.

Craiglist story

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 1:50am 4 Comments

I'm a Craiglist free stuff addict....Saw a radial arm saw listed...But by the time I found the house...It was gone...Get an email two days later saying guy never showed up....It was mine if I wanted it....That made my day....Will come in handy for cutting fret slots..Gave the guy some cash for his time and effort...Still made out pretty good on the deal

finger joint jig

gotta love it when you spend a few hours making a finger joint jig, and just about the time that you think that its running good, the index pin snaps off...hopefully the glue joint repair will hold up...oh well, enough whining for now

license plate guitar

Posted on August 15, 2016 at 12:52am 3 Comments

just finished my first license plate guitar...guess what i ran into most is, body brace blocks getting in way of input jacks. or the pickup cavity cutting in too deep into the neck . already started on 2nd one, gave the first one away for a birthday gift.
