If you like please post a SHORT explanation of how you got the CBG building, playing addiction.
I had many guitar parts, maybe enough to build 5 or 6 guitars. While in a smoke shop that had a walk in humidor and I saw my first cohiba red dot box and bought it not for a guitar but a just a stash box.
Few days later at a large garage sale bought a guitar body with neck for $6. When I laid the guitar on the bench next to the box the light came on RTZ#1 . First guy to play it like it so I gave it to him.
Then I found this site while trying to put a Smoky Amp in a Acid box and learned about the 386chip. In 8 years I have built about 34 sting instruments with the help of ya'll thanks. RTZ
In the mid-90's I stumbled across a dulcimer and learned how to play it (no musical talent at all up till then) and became addicted to them. Over the years I built several but always had a hard time finding parts for them. A friend gave me some cigar boxes she picked up at a flea market as a trade for building her a "canjimer" and the old brain started churning out ideas.In doing some research I came across C B Gitty and the parts problem was solved! I built a 2 box dulcimer with some leftovers and some Gitty parts and I was hooked (not too difficult as I have sort of a compulsive personality anyways). I ordered the 3 string guitar kit and it turned into a beautiful guitar that I am now learning the blues on and I just ordered the amp kit. Uh-oh, I feel another addiction coming on----I gotta go make some sawdust. Art PS, Can't say too much about C B Gittys parts and service, they're great.
