I've been making cbg for almost 7 years, I just finished my 75th one, I have sold all but 8, it's been a fun journey, learning experience and I keep learning something new.

So for my 75th I wanted to try something new, I redesigned the inner working how I make my cbg because I added a humbucker, which I've never done before. For me, adding a humbucker I had to rethink how I do the neck inside the cigar box. I think it turned out pretty nice, and the sound the humbucker picks up compared to a piezo is amazing, I think I'm hooked and will continue to start using humbuckers.

Hi Josh, nice looking, classy well finished. Of all the CBG's I have hanging on display I chose one with a humbucker as a keeper for me..........unless of course somebody likes it more than me and is willing to pay.


Looks like someone will be very happy when they get her. Something about black and gold makes it look classy. Great job Josh

Great look!  I too love humbuckers!  Flat ones make it easy, though...

Those previous 74 are apparent because that is one beautiful CBG. Clean and professional looking. Clearly you do good work. Keep it up.
