Great job on that one Tim. Looks great and I like the green burst finish.

I thought at first that was a bass. Looks really good, love the colour.

Just joined this group, hello everyone.

Started building a 6 string solid body in the CBG/Bo Diddly vein. Here's a couple of pics so far.

There's a CBG bass group too y'know.

What did you do for a neck?

I have made a number of CBGs which I usually give to friends but recently I made a solid body two string bass for a friend. Solid bodies! I'm hooked.

between 1978 and 1980 I built 4 acoustic guitars.figured it was a tough way to make a living and have been making jewelry for the last 35 years.
My interests now are electric blues and at age 66 would like to give building solid bodies a try. Be a fan of Seasick Steve i have become interested in 3 and 4string instruments.have checking out builds and lots of youtube. Glad to be a member of this group.jv
