Would it be better for the resonance of the top not to put the volume pot in the top? It's a small box.

Hallo Groovemeister,

zeker leuk al die dutchies! heb bijna alle materialen binnen om mijn eerste te bouwen. 

heb er al wel een maar een eigen build is natuurlijk leuker. had gehoopt hem te kunnen enteren in the build off maar dat gaat mijn niet meer lukken. Helaas!?!

Hoi Groovemeister, thanks voor de uitnodiging!


Je hebt een paar mooie Cbg's gemaakt! Vooral die Teabox vind ik mooi qua klank en uiterlijk!

Hi Servaas,

In de Unie spelen we als duo. 

Weet niet hoeveel gespeeld wordt. 1 mischien 2 liedjes.

Het is vooral een interview geloof ik.

Hopelijk tot dan!

Der Groovemeister! In Schiedam!


Je 3string thee-doos guitar ziet er s'weeet uit!

Ik zal over een week te zien in de Heidiger op de Bluegrass Outlaw Part met de Fournicators maar....

Onze drummer ligt in het ziekenhuis. Gaat wel beter met hem maar of hij dat haalt,

denk het niet. Helaas.

We spelen wel bij de Unie op de 3e maar dat is een zeer kort optreden met een interview. Anders zijn we op Twisted Folk in Hemingways in R'dam op de 27e. Dat is wel een aanradder.

Hope je gauw te ontmoeten!
