Since getting into this area of Guitar playing, I watch endless videos trying to gain as much knowlege as I can.  Lately, I.ve run into diatonic, pentatonic, fretting with only about 8 fretts, like a dulcimer.  In one, the guy had it his 3 strings tuned in such a way as to make playing blues like falling off a log.  I think Justin Johnson had one.  Problem is, I can never find them on line again.  Wish I could be more help.  What is a good size router bit for shaping the back of necks? I just bought nice router. Hmm, now what??  good talking to you, sorry I couldn't be more help.  I go into computer stores and they look at me and say, "what's the point."  Gordon

Just happened to see the video of your tilt neck CBG's. That is plain awesome thinking and design. Like your idea over the Fender design.

Good to know you Chickenbone. Just been checking out your "Jitterbug Swing" , liked Bukka White for eons and your version is ace. How did you come to buy The Works entire UK stock of BBG's? How much are you selling them for?

Definitely not your fault mate. Postie put a missed delivery slip through the door without bothering to knock. Then when I tried to collect it from the post office they looked for 20 minutes then said they'd lost it. Then after I rode to work they called to say they'd found it...

Hi John, after a bit of a nightmare with the Post Office (long story) I finally received the fretboard blanks from you this morning. They're wonderful, thanks very much! Cheers for the offcuts too!

Hey, CBJ, many apologies, have only just found your message re tailpieces.

yes I still need one, but most of the ones i've seen are for full sized resonators, and are too long. I only need a max of 3ins long , which was about the size of the USA one I commented on.

Regards SJ

Hey John, I got roped into putting on a small cbg workshop. Wondered if you would be willing to share some advise on the subject. Seems like I saw a deal about a workshop at boxstock. Thanks

Hello! My name is Kevin M. Kraft, founder of the annual Kansas City Cigar Box Guitar Festival. This year's event will take place on August 26th, and once again I am accepting cigar box guitars and cigar box guitar-related donation, which will be raffled off during the festival, the proceeds to benefit Kansas City's Blues in the Schools program. If you have a guitar, accessory, CD, DVD--anything related to cigar box guitars that you would like to donate, please contact me at the Cigar Box Nation or email me at kevinmkraft@juno.com  to learn where to send it.

 

Thanks for you time and consideration.

 

- Kevin
