Harvey here.  Long time blues/ragtime fingerpicker on a traditional guitar (40 years) and I got swept up into the CBG world a few months back when I bout a CB Gitty "Pure & Simple" kit, not sure if I would like it.  Now my other instruments sit collecting dust (shame!), and I just acquired a 4 string electric.  Loving it so far
