Well, It is safe to say I have the CBG bug something bad! CBG's have been on the mind for many many years. Now that the first one is out of the way, I have many ideas for more to come! I was asked to make a simple one for a friends mother for her birthday. Who am I to say no to that!!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!

I also have a 17 1/2" Edge box that I have had for some time now that I am still unsure in what direction to go with it! 6 string? 4 string? Who knows at this time!


I do have plans to build another CNG for me of my own design. Well, it may not be all my design, but it will be a little different to be sure! Something "me"!

I am so glad I found this site, I have had a blast making my CBG, and finding this site just befor it was done was a great find for me! All the info here, all the great folks, mot to mention I LOVE to talk shop.

I would still like to find CBG builders/players here in AZ. Maybe join a group, or start one that meets once a week to play and build. that would be AWESOME!

Thanks to all the kind words and advice I have received so far! I can't wait to meet more of you!

Keep it going folks,

Chris!
