So a while ago a very nice bloke whom many of you know on here (David L) gave me an almost full car load of instrument related goodies. In one of the boxes was a strip of what looked like capacitors.…Continue

So how many people on here use soundcloud? Figured it might be worth starting a group or a list if there's enough of us so we can all have a listen to each others, share them about and generally…Continue

Hi Dan, what a nice rustic CBG - am I right in thinking it is a bass string and 3 guitar strings? If so what tuning and scale have you used? Also for the 3 strings on the right have you added a piece of wood to give the machine heads a flat base to sit on and notched the broom handle for the string inserts? Sorry for all the questions but I am thinking of making a walking stick CBG so any ideas of how to fit machine heads to a broom handle will be stored for later use ;0)

Great work on the 4 string CBG!

Not sure if you got the message with the friend request - I live in Lancs and after 13 years of collecting beat up old instruments I need to make some space.  It includes guitars that can be stripped for parts/some switches (preused)/a very old mandolin neck that may/may not be restorable/old small violin etc...  If interested leave me a comment to say yes or no.They are free and I can drop them off (I would prefer they go to someone who can reuse them rather than taking to the dump).

Crap sorry pal, completely forgot to get back to you! But yeah, I'm just down the road in Euxton. I don't know anyone round here who's into cbg's except for a mate who's in another band. Well up for a jam though! Rob.
