Welcome aboard James. You will enjoy this site and the people who post here. Everyone is helpful and eager to be of assistance. I built a CBbass a couple months ago and if you're interested, check out my photos for a peek at the 'Gutshaker', perhaps it will give you an idea . . . it really is pretty easy to build. You may also want to join the Ohio CBG builders group (I live in Mansfield), so our paths may cross sometime. Jess
You will find this site to be probably the most informative available. Ask and you shall recieve. Im in Cincinnati, not that it matters, just letting you know where I stand,hehe
Welcome! UK huh, I am jealous, that means you can check out Hollowbelly, Bluesbeaten and those guys LIVE. Very cool
