Hi Shane, I just wanted to reach out and say hi and thanks for all the energy you put into the CBG movment. I'm working on my 3rd build and recently got a copy of poor mans guitars. Found the Portland cowboy very interesting because I'm a native portlander.Also , I grew up across the street from general Grant High, my older siblings went there, and what a trip that the school song was on that Portland cowboy guitar. Any way I'm a fan of your videos , hope someday to meet you in person. Take care and God Bless.
