Hello again. Gust finished my first 2 stringer. Will try to send pictures. The headstock has bronz bushings inserted where theeyebolt kets go through. They have lock nuts to keep things in tune. The top bosrd on neck is a strip of 1/4 ceder.  I drilled  the markings throuh the ceder and drove in haedwood does and sanded them smooth. I love playing it. Later Taze.

Hello,Am going to try my hand at building a two string. I am for the most part a slide player, and from what i have seen on you-tube they  look like a blast.

I built my first 2 stringer for this years RPM challenge and I've fallen in love with them. So much so I have started building 2 more.

My first 2 stringer, but definitely not my last. People walk up and want to know more about it. It's my constant concert companion! Many more to come this summer...

Kevin,  also, the electric strings will work, but in the future, I think acoustic string work better in a cbg.

Comment by Uncle John on February 18, 2012 at 2:31pm

Hi Kevin.  I would second what Mr. Random said.  If you are unclear on how to play, look at knotlenny's cbg 101 in the how to play section - top of the page.  Everything he shows for a 3 stringer will work for a 2.  DA is good, but there are many other options if you put on different strings.  I like the to use the A and D string from a 6 string set and tune G D.
