Hello all

Inspired by Seasick Steve and then all the great Utube clips online, I wondered if anyone can give me any pointers on how/where to go about buying a 3 or 4 string CBG?

thanks in advance for any help you can give! :)

Itching to learn to play one!

thanks Mortimer - I have send him a message now :)
Thanks Mort :o)
Yep, we're virtually neighbours!
I certainly have a whole heap of them in stock Dylan - maybe if youre up this way you'd like to drop by and have a play on a few? Whether you buy one from me, or someone else, or even if you decide to build one yourself, youll no doubt have a heap of questions!

Fair warning though - its addictive!
Ha Randy or JuJu can't get much better than those 2 even if you come to Texas !
Hello!
I've sent my Cigfiddles all over the world. I can send one to Scotland as well. I have 4 string, 8 string and resonators as well. they start at $400.00 and the 8 strings are $50.00 more. My "Resofiddles" Are $600.00 and up. they are fretted and work great acoustic or electric. Check out my websight, barattoguitars.com. Thank You!
Sincerely,
Matty B

Hey Matty - I love your work and that of Alain Johannes - I was wondering if you still sell online as your site seems to be down?

Thanks Lowe - that's reassuring! :)
Thanks Matty - I'm going to start out with something a little cheaper for now though. I do appreciate you gettign in touch though! I'll be checking out your page later anyway for sure.
Matty, just to also say that I found your website awesome! It got really my inpisred at the beginning of a day researching this style and led me to this site too! Rest assured, if I take to the instrument and want a classy looking replacement down the line, you're place will be there in 'dream' shops!

Thanks for being an inspiration.
Texas - whos in Texas Lowe?? ;o) hehe
Yup, I emailed Dylan and directed him to Jujus page too, and I believe he also had a chat to ChickenBone John, so hes got some choice now!
