Hello, I am a Semi-retired 25+ year watchmaker in Columbia, SC. I am an avid woodworker & machinists for most of my 57 years. My buddy Chewy is the Boss! My wife Cyndi does not know who babysits whom! I have been hooked on CBG;s for about the last 6 months. I caught a video from Justin Johnson and it literally exploded from there.

Chewy & I would like to thank,

All the fabulous people on these FB CBG groups! Also Justin Johnson, Del Puckett, Cigar Box Nation, C B Gitty, KP CBG, Christopher Ameruoso, Shane Speal, Glen Watt, Red Dog Guitars, Mike Snowden and the many others not named but not forgotten for this fabulous addiction!

It is going to be a great ride!

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.
