Doug. My plan is to build a few CBGs over the next week or three. Well, at least to the point where the "ugly stuff" has been dealt with. (Sawdust, table saws, routers, shaping and sanding.) I am forced to do batch processing of components like necks and bodies so I can complete similar processes in one go. It is not ideal, as I prefer to work on an instrument as a bespoke unit. Will see how it goes and will feed back as I go. With any luck at all I will produce those photos you asked for along the way. Regards. Pieter.

Doug. I refer to your request for photos. My circumstances are such that I had not been able to build since I produced a number of mini guitars for my grandkids. (Doing so created an awful mess and caused much discomfort for my wife ) I now plan to attend a newly established "Menzshed" in our local town. They provide work space and basic equipment for DIY'ers at a facility in town. I am making slow progress and will feed back once I have something to show. All of the best. Pieter.

Thanks for checking in DougThorsvik. I guess I got in a little CBG funk around the time of DaveLynas passing, and got a bit busy with other stuff too. I trust you’re still slingin’ the hits and the two string wonders!
