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 there Daryll I have posted the pic of the only one I have left, will post pictures of the next build. Hope you are all keeping well and safe and keep strumming 3 stringers

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.

At 12:46am on August 31, 2020, John Lotspeich said…

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.

Craiglist story

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 1:50am 4 Comments

I'm a Craiglist free stuff addict....Saw a radial arm saw listed...But by the time I found the house...It was gone...Get an email two days later saying guy never showed up....It was mine if I wanted it....That made my day....Will come in handy for cutting fret slots..Gave the guy some cash for his time and effort...Still made out pretty good on the deal

finger joint jig

gotta love it when you spend a few hours making a finger joint jig, and just about the time that you think that its running good, the index pin snaps off...hopefully the glue joint repair will hold up...oh well, enough whining for now

license plate guitar

Posted on August 15, 2016 at 12:52am 3 Comments

just finished my first license plate guitar...guess what i ran into most is, body brace blocks getting in way of input jacks. or the pickup cavity cutting in too deep into the neck . already started on 2nd one, gave the first one away for a birthday gift.
