Hi my name is Jeff, I am also from Australia. Western Sydney NSW.
I am a carpenter and have been building CBG's for about 18months. I have built about 10 so far, given 7 away to family as gifts. I mostly play my 3 string but I have built some 4 strings too as these seem to suite those with guitar knowledge. See above the CBG's I have kept for me, the 4 string is missing the bridge at the moment as I gave that to my nephew for a CBG I made him earlier in my CBG making and had improved my technique since that time. The CBG is the first instrument that I have learnt/ learning to play, and so far I still build better than I play but I am getting better, and my understanding of music is also getting better.
I have transposed a tab for "A Fistful of Dollars" for Gdg tuning if anybody is interested. I am trying to make a video of me playing it but so far I keep stuffing it up, but its a fun tune to play.
CBG's have sparked an interest in guitars generally for me and I have just made a travel guitar from an old acoustic guitar. Below is a video of how I made it.
That's probably enough about me and the video will tell you exactly who I am.
Bye for now,
