Hi there, Paul. My husband and I met you at Eumundi Markets some weeks ago and my husband was very interested to ask you all about the guitars, and he bought a CD. He's really taken an interest and wants to learn to play. His birthday is coming up in February and I would like to get him a cigar box guitar. I know you run courses in making them, but we are in Canberra. I have found the CB Gitty website, so I could order a kit from America for making a cigar box guitar, but I'm wondering if there's any way to do this closer to home. It would be good to get hold of something inside Australia. Do you sell the kits, or already made guitars? Otherwise, can you suggest anyone else? I'm keen to get hold of something before 15 February, if I can.

Regards,

Pamela

Paul, that sounds like a great idea. Could you take a photo of that wire bending jig and post it so I can see it? I would appreciate it very much. Thank you for the advice. Great idea.

Paul, you have made some very nice CBGs. I love the jukebox one; it is beautiful. All of them are beautiful. You are very talented and have great ideas. Very nice job.
Penny said you used metal clothes hangers for fret wires. Can you give me some tips on using them? I am working on my first tin CBG. I am using the metal coat hangers for fret wire. I have already cut them up, but now need to file them to shorten for the slots on the neck. I would appreciate it very much if you could give me some advice. Thanks.
