Hey, I've never heard of Etta Baker until today. I've been listening to her a lot today. She is really great. Thanks for the new to me music.

And I'd like to add that I totally agree with what your profile says about CBGs being portable, cheap to build, and creative. You can take 'em anywhere, and they cost so little to build that you can try out all kinds of different designs!

Hi back, Darryl. In reply to your comment that ...

> "The resource tab on this site has a great ebook by
> Josh gayou on building cbgs..very detailed"

... I'll say that I already downloaded that one ... and several others! I've been pretty busy buying up books on Amazon, and quietly checking stuff out in the "on paper" world. Am checking out online stuff, too ...

Craiglist story

Posted on January 27, 2017 at 1:50am 4 Comments

I'm a Craiglist free stuff addict....Saw a radial arm saw listed...But by the time I found the house...It was gone...Get an email two days later saying guy never showed up....It was mine if I wanted it....That made my day....Will come in handy for cutting fret slots..Gave the guy some cash for his time and effort...Still made out pretty good on the deal

finger joint jig

Posted on September 4, 2016 at 12:01am 0 Comments

gotta love it when you spend a few hours making a finger joint jig, and just about the time that you think that its running good, the index pin snaps off...hopefully the glue joint repair will hold up...oh well, enough whining for now

license plate guitar

Posted on August 15, 2016 at 12:52am 3 Comments

just finished my first license plate guitar...guess what i ran into most is, body brace blocks getting in way of input jacks. or the pickup cavity cutting in too deep into the neck . already started on 2nd one, gave the first one away for a birthday gift.
