Hi Steve, I saw your cbg's at the Dewey Ave. shop. Very nice! I live in upstate New York near Lake George but I visit my daughter in Irondequoit frequently. I make lots of diferent things and have always loved guitars and music. I heard a cbg while searching the e-net for simple guitar lessons and knew I had to have, build and learn to play one. To make it simple , I'd like to start with a three string instrument that I can learn bottle neck slide . I love the blues. If you have a three stringer I'll be in rochester this weekend finishing a remodel of my daughters kitchen. This is all very new to me so any information would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks , Rene
