Hi Darryl, Thanks for the welcome, as requested heres a pic of my 1st CBG. (slide) Bit rough round the edges but sounds pretty good. Will be using in the studio.

Hello Darryl!
Thanks for being the first to welcome me to CBG. I hope to be on here more in less than 6 months when I retire.

Take care,

It was on my Christmas list … but … looks like I may have to buy it myself!

Thanks for the welcome, Darryl.

In about 120 working days, I hope to be retired and I really want to do something fun ... like build a CBG!

Thanks! Winter is always a great time to spend time in the shop. Looking forward to learning more about cgb"s. I have a few builds that will be starting this weekend and will be trying a few options...oak neck, maple neck, thru-body (no tailpiece), hinge tailpiece, etc. Will be making stomp boxes as well from smaller boxes. Started to gather up some boxes and am guessing the shelves in the shop will soon be overtaken by boxes.

Sure thing Darryl, thanks for the comment, looking at your photos you have a lot of experience especially in the art, design and detail the wood burning is excellent.

best regards Chris.

Thank you. Yes I am in process of what I think will be a very cool build. Something different.

Sorry it's taken me 3 years to accept your invite. I've not been making guitars since the Grommit Git and have only just cleared out my workshop to the poiint where I can actually work in it ;-) Discovered a heap of unfinished necks and got the bug again :)

Thanks for your comments Darryl, will post more pics when I finish more of my builds, I love the pics of the cbgs on here, I've got lots to learn.

Hi Darryl

i am absolute beginner, so I just completed 1st build that was a kit by C.B. Gitty. I hope to try the next one on my own. I have a comacho cigar box to use, still planning it out.

Thanks for the welcome and accepting me to the Nation.  I am currently building a special tele style guitar, but once that is finished, I have been collecting parts for my next cigar box guitar.  I used a fender neck on my last build, but think I will try my hand at a home made neck on the next one.  Stretching my wings you might say.

Thanks Darryl!

Thanks for the help offer..I will probably ask questions as I go. I am looking forward to the first build a little later this year.

Greetings from Missouri!

Thank you sir , fun build

Thanks for the invitation, Darryl. I like the bone nuts. I buy the blanks from CB Gitty. I would make my own from dog bones, but I don't have the power tools for the job. I guess a hack saw would work?

Thanks. No, I've never gone to a meeting there. I did stop by the CBG festival there last year. I might have to go check it out sometime.
