How many instruments have you built so far?
Eighteen.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
CBG's have provided me with a new and enjoyable interest, whether I am building one or playing (I started learning to play and build in 2017) They have also revived my interest in folk, rock and blues. I enjoy listening to the music and watching the performers. I am developing and working on my own CBG music material.

The british aircraft isnt every year but the have re-actment camps

Couldnt believe it when seeing it the dude asked do uou know what that is? i chuckled and said yup my Grandpop had an Ariel and a Rudge. Red hand of Ulster!!! 

love to have those two bike now. A T-100 would be nice too or a BSA or Vincent Black Lightning. Heck Richard Thompson does a cool song about them!!!

Hi Bob, just started a chat online with you but you signed out. If you hear a pinging sound it means someone is messaging you and you can reply at the bottom of the page.

I confirmed your friend request mate. I don't spend much time on here these days as I am more into frontier and mountain men gear. If you leave a message it will appear on my Hot Mail account.

Chris.
