I'm From Seguin, TX. New to building CBGs. My first experience was a cardboard guitar kit. Then I made a 3-String Slide CBG. I just finished a 3-String Fretted CBG. 24" Scale Length and Internal Spring Reverb. Pictures are on my page.

Welcome Kalmario. Don't know whom your speaking of, but I'm sure he'll chime in soon if he his a regular. If not, we can help answer any questions you have. There's a few Aussie's on site and maybe a New Zealander or 2. Hope we can help and there's some good info in "The Essential Pages" at the upper right of this page.
