I went to a CBG Facebook page. Hoo boy.
I saw a lot of posts saying basically, "This is my X hundredth build and it's for sale!" Then they name a price. A price for which I can go pick up a very, very nice "real" guitar. My questions.
At what point do CBGs quit being a hobby and become a business? And what makes a CBG command $500 to $600 on the low end?
I have little interest in selling my CBG. And less interest in buying one. My point, sorta, was looking to FB for build questions and being plastered with For Sale ads.
Many of the best CBG's can be had for $300 or less.,Those ones Johnny Depp buys are about $1600.,.,
I sell piezo powered for $65 , mag pup builds $20 more.,.,
Looking on Ebay, I have seen ones around $1800, from a dude on this site.,.,another dude building ones from logs of Robert Johnson's cabin.,.,$4000 each,..,so expensive builds are out there.,.,but truly you have hundreds of choices.,., the even have Chinese built ones now.,,.
For me.,.,hobby only.,.,I could do it as a business, but where is the fun in that.,.,???
