3 string electric tuned GDG. The 4 string BB plays so well I decided to make a 3 string because as you know sometimes the 4th gets in the way! I added a tone control to this version & used the surround as a soundhole cover.

Cheers for the kind comments Bob :)) Yep, gardening not my thing but I like the finished article

Very picturesque!  I'm about the same as you in the garden Denbo... Tree/shrub remover/planter.  Excess foliage get-ridder of.

Denbo, I think I have used them as Vol Tone Plate on at least one of my builds, don't remember which one though! :-)

Thanks for the kind comment AGP # ~ I also thought about using one as a Volume & Tone control plate too, just an idea :))

Well, good on Ms Karen then. And her sore backed laborer.

A Classy CBG Build and Garden "Denbo", have a Squillion of the same Pup Surrounds, and have never thought about using them as Sound Holes, thanks for the idea!

Thanks UJ, that's just a small part near the garden toolshed. The rest is just as nice. It's all my wife Karen's doing, she's the greenfingered one, I'm just a part time lawnmower. heavy plant pot lifter and hole digger :))

Denbo!  An absolutely lovely little garden at its peak and a the white guitar and statuary looks so nice.
