"My experience with just spraying over loose labeling is that it will still be loose when you're done. I do use spray lacquer on my gits, but first I take the time to very carefully glue down every last bit of loose labeling. I use Elmer's…"

Bob Herget replied to Derek Sucharda's discussion Neck radius & 3vs 4 string instrument.
"I've only built 3 string CBGs so far myself, but the next one is to be a 4 string with a 23" scale tuned G2, D3, A3, E4, (Irish Tenor tuning) and I plan to use a flat fretboard. I play an Ibanez AVT1 Tenor Guitar (23" scale) that has…"

Bob Herget replied to Bill Weissborn's discussion Sound hole placement
"Hi Bill, I'm somewhat of a CBG newbie myself, so consider that fact in my reply. I could see that the lack of bracing that a formal guitar would have underneath it's top may be a factor. I could imagine some deformation occurring over…"

Bob Herget replied to Richard Dean's discussion Fretless marking advice
"I forgot about the need to sand the inlays. That would be a problem with a stained fretboard. Unless you changed the fretboard material to a naturally darker wood. Or very carefully re-stain after sanding, but that really never turns out well, does…"

Profile Information

How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
Surfin' on the old interwebs for CBG info!
How many instruments have you built so far?
Zero. I just started accumulating supplies.
What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
As soon as I first thought about making CBGs, I immediately started to think about all the crazy recycled components I could use to enhance the quality or singularity of the sound produced from a CBG, or 2 of them, or 6, or 12, or..., well, you get the idea.

Hello, Bob.

Thank you for leaving a kind comment and warm welcome for me. From a picture you've posted, I see you've got several beautiful cigar boxes to start your building. Seems you've got plenty of opportunities to learn, and build upon, cigar box guitar-building skills. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Thanks again, Bob.

Hi Bob,  

Thank you for the friend request.  Regarding your question they are geared closed tuners.  I buy them from eBay and from which seller has the cheapest price at the time.  Typically this means a seller from China and a delivery time that varies between 2 to 6 weeks.  I have never had a problem and if I did PayPal would refund the price.  If you prefer a USA seller CB Gitty had an excellent reputation and a large choice with quick delivery.

The only reason I don't buy from him is because I live in the UK.

If you are looking for ideas for your guitar build please feel free to have a look through my photos and ask any questions.

Kind regards,

David L
