"Thanks for the invitation, Darryl. I like the bone nuts. I buy the blanks from CB Gitty. I would make my own from dog bones, but I don't have the power tools for the job. I guess a hack saw would work?"

"great job on the build, what i like about license plate guitars is that the bodies are usually about the same size so you can make multiple ones but still have option to move pickups, etc or customize each one"

Thanks for the invitation, Darryl. I like the bone nuts. I buy the blanks from CB Gitty. I would make my own from dog bones, but I don't have the power tools for the job. I guess a hack saw would work?

Thanks. No, I've never gone to a meeting there. I did stop by the CBG festival there last year. I might have to go check it out sometime.

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!

Thanks for the welcome, Darryl. Much appreciated!

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.
