CBG folks are generally generous. (please read text)

Brian Q sent me this koozie a while back and I always think of him when I see it or use it. Thanks and God bless, BQ. You are one of the most generous commentors on CBN and we appreciate it.

So many of us gift and donate cbgs. Heck, if shipping was not so spendy, we would likely gift more.

Out in the shed today for the first time in a while. Drinking a whole THREE Keystone Lights that I got a 15 pack of for less than $10.00.

The project??? I made a cute sledding themed guitar back around Christmas or winter. The Intonation has always SUCKED.

Well, it was intended for open G and the G and C sounded good, but the D or D7 was OFF.

Trying to salvage it and if it comes out decent, gift it to a nice neighbor girl I have got started playing. No shipping hastles when you gift locally.

Hey, build and play and be kind. Have a good day. Tell em' Poop Shoe Perkins sent you.

PS: Get those Covid shots!!!

I agree Unc. in general most CBG groups are like that. I think it goes back to folks with common interest building without any rules. No one is getting rich off these things, so we don't do it for money. Like you I have gifted many over the years, you if think about that's as good as selling one. There is no "gold standard" to achieve with these things. But I have built a few 5 string banjo's and people will pick them apart. That's because they are 5 string banjo people and have a pre conceived idea of what a banjo should be. Any deviation messes with them. I had a guy measuring my banjo necks with calipers at various points telling me what they should measure. I still have that banjo and while a poor player I have spent hours picking around on it.

I think Brian has been as encouraging and supportive as can be. His likes show up first on most all my posts. Thanks Brian Q !
