I was just browsing Craigslist to see what the market might be for CBGs in my area. There was one post. The git looked a bit familiar and sure, enough...

    It was one of mine, that I had sold years ago. My logo was plain to see.  hmmm

At first I was like, "Cool. "

Then I was all,  " ...Didn't he like it enuff to keep it? "

Then: I was kinda smiling, " y'know. It looks pretty good. Hey, one of my creations out in the world, having a life - going places I've never been or will be.   Good Tunin' little guy! "

It's a Process.

a few years back while looking at craigslist, I too saw a CBG, then a shock came to me, that was mine! my very first build I later gave to my nephew for his birthday because he was into guitars and I thought he would appreciate having something I built he could play- He sold it to a pawn store! A call made to the pawn shop and told them the story I was able to trade my wine box 4 string reso to get my 3 string back.

Sold one in Nottingham, which ended up for sale in London for more that  I sold it for!
