I currently own about 10-12 CBG's. one in the hands of Jim Morris of CB Nation. One with a neighbor. One at a cigar store and one at a music store. Quite a few on a rack in my shop and one by the computer. It is a disease with no cure. I have two in different stages of building. If my wife allowed I would store them proudly on the wall in the living room. Find a local music store to take a few on consignment, you would be surprised by the results!!!!   It helps fund the disease!!!


i   own   about    65   to  68  personal   guitars .  most   vintage  teiscos  and  collector  items  . some   are  cbg type   builds    bought  from  ,  and  /or  gifted  from    members  here  .  some   are  my  builds  i    kept  .

don't call  DR  Phill  ,  i'm  fine  ..  really  ;-)


Hey pick!! Any interest in a swap? I could send you one of mine for one of yours. Jim Morris did a review of one he liked. I would love to check out one of yours as I have seen them in the hands of others. Great sound!!


ill  friend request  ya  and  email   you about it  jeff 

I've got @ 100 handmade stringed instruments.

I had an equivalent number of factory builds, but I've sold most of them. 

I'm currently travelling with 4 cigar box guitars, 1 Swamp Witch guitar, and 3 amps...

To much is always better than not enough!

Commercial gits
and CBGs...north of 25, with two more just showed up a few days ago at my Mom's. ;-)

I've probably got about 25 cigar box guitars, mostly made by me because I'm too lazy to sell.  Some on the walls in the hall, some in my bedroom, some in the man cave.  Then there's my two mandolins, one bought and one made by me, six strings including an Ibanez acoustic, Mexican strat, Gretsch resonator, Schecter electric, two other six stringers I made, oh yeah and a nice banjo that's currently gathering dust.

Too many and not enough time to play, maybe time for a clear out.

got a pic of that Schecter ?  

Not the best photos, that was just after I bought it.  Schecter Damien Elite 6.
