Anybody traded any goods and services for their builds? I just made a deal with my favorite coffee stand for $40 in coffee and $20 cash to cover my materials for a basic acoustic slide build. I'll put an hour to an hour and a half into the build and reach the another person with a CBG with lots of energy!

And - if your a member here, reach out and get more members in this group. I make CBG's for the fun of it. I'm not looking to make money just some music.

SO, started this group a few years ago. Where are the trades? I will trade a basic CBG for a basic CBG from anyone. Message the group and let me know youre down with a trade. (Basic - 3 string, my design, piezo pick up - for your basic CBG action)

@ Steve Mattox 

It seems people do their trades everywhere but on this group. Just pop up what you figure to trade and see what response you get!

Have boxes and necks and fretboards and frets!

But I suck at electronics. I have some serious interest in handmade pups that are already wired, that and cigar box amps, stomp boxes, effects, basically anything electronic that is hand made. 

I'm offering 1,2,3,4, or 5 string acoustic guitars, ukes, or banjos with whatever action and scale you want.  Any requests? I'll build it and then if you like what you see we can go ahead. If not, I'll bring it down to the store to hang on the wall.

We were thinking of setting up a trade booth at the St. Louis cigar box festival.

Amp plugged in for sound checks. All trades final, keep the peace you know!

Anyway I thought it would be fun to trade up or down on one of my builds just to try something new. It would be a hoot. I was also thinking equipment trades, anybody?
