Anyone have the software? I just bought one at a yard sale for a Buck (Yes it's the $99+) Unit. But for a buck I figured I'd find someone willing to share the drivers/software for it. Problem I have…Continue

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Googled CBG's & SATX

My first CBG inspired by seeing one and KNOTLENNY

I ordered a set of 6 (Single)Tuners and a Pickup with tone,volume and a 1/4" jack to build my first electric. I was inspired by 2 things, a CBG I saw at the flea market (Which I stupidly didn't buy) and mostly by Knotlenny's how to tune a CBG video, I used his maybeline song as the background music in my first build video. I made the video before I knew he goes by KNOTLENNY I just went by his youtube name like mine on youtube is PHARTATTACK not MZ-HANDYMAN...Enjoy...
I'm from San Antonio, Texas and am looking for other builders in my area

Ah yes - sleepless nights of guitar building! I can't do the headstocks like that because I don't have precision tools or patience! Is that pine you are using by the way as you might try hardwoods instead -better tone and they don't bend. Hope you get some sleep soon!

Hi there, like the way you set the neck into the lid like a real guitar - I did that on my first few builds then went the simpler route - maybe I'll go back to it after seeing yours!
