There is a line of 3pcs of Solid Bogy Guitars (SBG), which were inspired by design of CBG, I met in internet. All were manufactured by me in 2022-2023.
So the first two instruments were used as prototypes to develop the final design (#3) and Guitar body final shaping, including selection of necessary tools, materials and type of woods and coating used.
Special attention was dedicated to development and assembling of the flat pick-up, which really allows to simplify the…Continue

I've been figuring out a workflow for mixing stereo recordings in Audacity from overdubbed tracks made with my looper pedal. Here's a couple of examples.

I've just bought an inexpensive looper pedal (Lekato) and found that it records my 3-string CBG and 2-string CBB with minimal effort. The looper exports a high-quality WAV file via a USB connector, which I convert to MP3 after editing (gain, fade in/fade out, etc) with Audacity.
I'll try to attach a couple of examples. One is overdubbed guitar, and the other is guitar + bass. …Continue

It was an emotional week. I lost my beloved cat of 19 years. Ellie made cameos in several of my videos so I thought some folks here might want to know. I miss her very much, but I know she spent her life surrounded by love. She was a very special cat.

Currently working on a few prototypes for some guitar effects pedals. I have my Fuzz pedal back from testing currently. Going to swap out transistors for something a bit hotter.
The current transistors are BC108. And I will be trying out some BC108C this time around. It is essentially a Fuzz Face with a few changes, and a whole different PCB…Continue

Just finished number two build. It's set up as a three string, but has pairings of bass and treble strings. It sounds very mandolin-ish. Warning: If you do this make sure your have a very stout infrastructure. The tension is amazing.

Here’s something for the Beginners. A simple introduction to the Dorian scale. It only requires one string, so it shouldn’t be hard at all. Learn it up & down, then apply the basic Scale formula to 3 strings for even more possibilities…

Ol' Bookie's been at it again. Just finished a 3 stringer for myself a bit ago. Made the box from native Iowa cherry with a birch bottom. The neck is walnut striped oak topped with Ben's golden skull tuners. Dan May over in Colfax donated all the wood for the project just to keep me out of the taverns. It goes without saying that most of the little components are Ben's. It's tuned open G and the piezo pick-up does need a pre-amp to tone down the Red Dog resonator! 4 pics for your…Continue
