Well, It is safe to say I have the CBG bug something bad! CBG's have been on the mind for many many years. Now that the first one is out of the way, I have many ideas for more to come! I was asked to make a simple one for a friends mother for her birthday. Who am I to say no to that!!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!



I also have a 17 1/2" Edge box that I have had for some time now that I am still unsure in what direction to go with it! 6 string? 4 string? Who knows at this time!

Hey thanks man. I dig you r videos, especially the part about being able to park a buick under the action. I ran into that too, thankfully I was using a prototype nut and bridge. I decided to use ebony instead of the bolt though, so there is a little more futzing with things to make em just so, but well worth it. Love the bolt tho. It's a great look.
