No sun and its snowing!!  I just finished 3 builds. A really nise Gisbert box, about the same size as a macanudo portofino, but varnished wood. It sounds really nice accoustically. And a Macanudo portofino cafe, also nice sound but the gisbert is better. And an odd ball, a very thin and small Questa Rey box that I added wings to to give it a guitar look, amped only, sounds like an unplugged electric without the amp.

would love to see it happen

Cool, It would be kind of fun to meet up in a central location with other cbgers. Central Mass seems as good a place as any, not far from most of New England. There must be more than 3 of us up hopefully they will join in.

I'm officially a New Yorker but a New England transplant. Welcome

I'm just over the border in upstate NY, about half an hour from Pittsfield, MA. I know its not officially new england but am I close enough?  I've been thinking of starting a group for us northerners, thanks for beating me to it Eric.

Looking for building secrets, upcoming gigs, new insight, or anything remotely interesting.
