Aloha all and good day,

Well interesting thing happeded last Saturday.

  went to see a friend I gave a cbg to and he gave it back with a note that said glue the fret board down it might play better. Oh dummy me  got in a hurry . so all I have to sy is SLOW DOWN  and take your time Its not a race its not the finished product its how you got there. Iseemed to forgot that is the most important part of building is the journey aloha all Tommy

Glad to see there are folks in California building CBG's.  I am in Orange if anyone is around Orange County area.  I've built a diddley bow and haven't quite finished my fretless three string.  I don't play....yet. Will be learning for sure.  Even if it's just noodling.  Got to get some mileage from what I want to build.

Only thing I can say Tommy is that after spending my "working life" as a tool and die machinist and finishing the last 20 plus years as an aircraft mechanic, part of what I enjoy about building cigar box guitars is working off the cuff without any plans.  I love just looking a pictures of other folks builds and then just letting the ideas grow in my head. Had one build that was a total disaster, but you never know when the next one will be the best one yet.  Half of the fun is experimenting and trying things just to see the results.

Duck, ichecked  out the web site  not really any help there. What I need is to be shown how one is built beginning to end.

I got a disk type resonator from cb gitty and all the stuff to build it

I just want to do it right. My pop said "anything worth doing is worth doing right" any help is cool tommy

Here is one source for info on resonators.

http://www.cigarboxnation.com/group/HMRB101

Another way to find information is at the very top of this page there is a red stripe and on the right side is a "search" box.
