Hi, I looked at the web sight and there is a good range of styles and quality looks good, I could not see any prices though.

What I did see was that the maker used to play with the Pretty Things blues band. I used to watch that band at the Ferry Boat Inn in the UK on weekends. Wow! that was over 50 years ago.

I cant tell you about his CBG,s. You could judge by: 1- the style you like 2- the pickup used 3- price asked.

Cheers Taff

Thanks for that Taff I appreciate you help, I have written to the guy and his pricing is between $250.00 to $350.00. Depending on what you get such as humbucker pick up to resonator, so I will let you know after the weekend when I go to the Williamstown Market on Sunday.

Hi Bill, those prices look good to me, cheaper than I thought they would be by looking at what you get. Good luck Taff

Sorry Taffy But I got the prices wrong, I paid $395.00 for my 3 string fretted with single coil pick up from black diamond cigar box guitar. John was very helpful and answered all my questions. So I have had The Cuban I name my guitars, since Sunday and have not put it down. I know that you can get cheaper priced CBG's but I am very happy with mine. Guys take a look at Black Diamond CBG there are really well built and play so good I am loving it.

Hi Bill, glad you are happy with your new CBG. And the price you paid is what I would expect from a quality turned out instrument with playability, good looks and a good sound.

Cheers Taff
