Hi

I am from Bracebridge, Ontario. I have always played guitar and fiddle and I am now learning to play a 5 string banjo.

I got a book on building cigar box guitars for XMAS. I just completed my first build. A 3 string fretless biscuit tin with a under the saddle piezo rod pickup. Next I will be building a didley bow.

welcome Neil     ;-)

Hey Neil - Welcome aboard from not quite an hour down the road in Craighurst.  :-)

Welcome from an hour or so down the road in Barrie

Welcome Neil. I'm in Nova Scotia. Good to have you here

Hi all,

  My names John and I am in ottawa, and I have been tinkering with this hobby for a couple of years now and have a couple of guitar and bass builds under my belt as well as a recent cbg and companion amp. I love it...im totally hooked, and plan on filling my walls with more cbgs!

  Ill try and post some pics but im a bit of a tech bozo

nice lookin    stuff  jonny   ;-)

 

Thanks pick

Jonny - nice. Thanks for posting. 

I'm in Alberta, Canada, and I just finished up my first build a couple of weeks ago. You can see 'er here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G5kldCnjr68

I can't remember how I came across CBGs. I think my mom found a video of one, and she showed it to me. I've always had an interest in lutherie, and building a guitar out of a cigar box seemed like the easiest way to start building instruments. I'm planning my second instrument now, I think I'm gonna go for a ukelele this time.

cool      ,  and welcome to  the addiction  ;-)
