Building and rebuilding some lately. Gifting them to people who want to learn to play. Throwing in a couple lessons. Having fun.

Can you spot a cucumber?

Thanks, Alan.  Hope you had a good trip.

Yep!, spotted the Kookumba, but only after I viewed it Full Size  :-D

Good on you, Doug.  Have fun.  This one pictured is already being played pretty well by the new owner.

Nice, clean looking build Uncle John! I haven’t really fooled around with slide; having too much fun with frets. Getting others in the game is the way to go. Got a BYOB (Bring Your Own cigar Box) class coming up at Spokane Community College coming up Tuesday; should be fun building and learning to play Chuggers.

Thanks, Rope and Fantacone.  It was good to be back building.   I will try not to build unless it is for a specific person or reason.

Very nice

Wasnt that an early television game show, “ You Win A Cuke”?
Comment by Uncle John on September 20, 2021 at 2:39pm

Thanks, Pat. Played good as soon as it was strung up.  Just a piezo, but it sounded good.  You win a cuke.

And yes I spy the Cuke :-) 

Comment by Maddog on September 20, 2021 at 1:55pm

Good man John! I like this one!
