Hey there,

For some time I've been browsing this forum (among other sources of info) and recently I finished my first build. Strictly it's not a CBG since I built the box myself. I thought I would show of with it. I learned a lot about building and think I might have a new addiction.

Looks good.  Good attention to detail and plenty of vibe going on.

Nice job, Pim!

Hey Pim - nice work - Welcome to the community! And cigar boxes, wine boxes, build your own - whatever works!

Good work and welcome to the addiction.

Looks Good!! I like the pickup placement. Very clean build!!!

Very nice. Love the long box... and that’s your first? Your twenty-first (and there likely will be a twenty-first) will be something!

Welcome Pim. This is a great community. There is a wealth of information here and don't be afraid to ask questions. 

Welcome Pim

Nice first one!
Did you made the pickup? 

Metal Hic, sorry, but it's just a cheap Ali thingy. Pulled the front off and let it peak through the front panel. Came out nice allthough I need to work on my drilling alignment.
Thanks

Still a good idea. I like it!
