I was thinking of using individual roller bridges for my 3-string that is setup with peizo and I don’t have room for a rail.  Will the individual roller bridge create enough vibration for the peizo…Continue

Hi Gerald and welcome!

i think you've just found out why people put "Build, Play, Repeat" on t-shirts. If there's anyone out there who built just one CBG then s/he must be a stranger person indeed...

 First off, let me say sorry for the message to everyone in the group. I thought I was posting a comment on the wall. lol.

Hello, I stumbled across this sight while searching the web for building a guitar. I was hooked from the first night of reading and new I had to build one of these. So after a month or two of reading, poking around and trying to decide what to order/use in my first build I finally gathered all my material and built a 3 string Open G out of a nice Padron box. I now have a problem. I really want to learn to play the CBG but the problem is that I enjoyed building it so much that I am already planning my second build. This is a great site with lots of information.

Hello y'all! Dannyboy here from upstate NY. I'm totally new to this whole cigar box guitar thing but I'm really fascinated with the great stuff you guys are building. Hope to build one myself soon.For now I'll be looking for inspiration on this great site!

My name is Freddie Cisneros I was a friend of Don "Boz" Bostwick back in Viet Nam.

I'm a Service Center for the Martin and Fender Guitar Companies out here in Prescott, Arizona.

I have not built a CBG in a long time but I just got back into the fun.
