New to Cigar Box Nation.  Been building for about six months now, and am nearly completed with guitar # 7.

Here's a shot of #1, a cigar box with a 36 Connecticut license plate, walnut neck, and piezos under the bridge and behind the plate.  Sounds good.  Now in the hands of my wingman from 2003 Iraq.

Fellow Carolinians... I have got a big problem with my first build.  I keep coming back to it, thinking I can fix it (but only make it worse).  Anyone here know a thing or two more than me live in, or close to Gastonia who might be willing to take a look and tell me what I am doing wrong?  

Here's the low down in a discussion I posted this morning...http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/class101/forum/topics/somewhat-....  I seriously don't think it's my fret spacing and has to be something else.

Hello all,

Glad to join Tarheel CGB. Just beginning to learn how make and how to play the CBG. 

Comment by Chris Bennett on October 22, 2013 at 10:45am

Vic,  what do you do with sleepy hollow?  I've watched the filming  a little.  I'm not tall and thin, so won't be acting!  Those CBG's are by Black Owl guitars.  Nice gittys and a good guy too.  Helpful with info and encouragement.

Hello All, I'm native to the Tarheel State (Asheboro) and just saw this group.  Currently Deployed to Afghanistan and received a donated 3 string last month. Any tips to learning how to play will be greatly appreciated.
