juju - a compliment on the pups from Skeesix is indeed a great compliment - I just got one of her three poles and it is awesome - that woman knows her stuff... I need to order one of yours next! :-) I need a yellow one.... 3 pole, for s special project. Stay tuned!
Thanks again D much appriciated mate , thanks for taking the time to check it out
:-) juju.

Just had another look now it's finished and it looks the part.
Good luck with it in the coming year, hope you do really well.
U do very nice work.I like your CBG's, their different and from what we can see I think their worth twice what u ask for them.
Thank you Roger most kind of you to say so - putting a price on things has always been my down fall - but the best payment of all is enjoying building them - i had Bluesbeaten Redshaw come over for the Day the other week and boy did he make my Resonator sing that was a great reward for me to hear :-)
thanks again mate

Thanks you for the post.
Hi guys, Im a newbie. Nice to join this forum.

Well we can all say, we knew you when you were just starting out.
You will do quit well , and will work out any bugs quickly.

Kindest Regards
Site looks good. DIdn't you have a previous site with a focus on your pickups, less flashy than this new one?
The builds are fantastic, and the recordings show they're not just pretty faces!
I love your reso blues track. I'm curious - seems a lot of the resonator's tone is coming through the wound pickups. I kinda figured you'd get more of the normal electric and less of the reso sound with wound pickups, so I've only added piezos to the couple resonator cbgs I've built. Is that just the magnetic pickup and some reverb?

2nd question: that tiny resonator guitar - did you make the tuners, reso cover plate, and all yourself, or did you find somewhere to get them?
