Lets talk OHMs

There is an old myth about pickups and ohms.  Though I understand the misunderstanding of higher ohms equals a hotter pickup.  You take an electrical meter, measuring the ohm of a pickup, the numbers climb up high and viola, you think its a hot pickup.  Disclaimer:I never went to any electrical engineer school nor picked up a book, I learned over the years of experience from having a father who was a junker. We would spend hours trying to power electrical toys that were broken to enhancing…See More

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I love guitars of all kinds. Its the sound and tone of them that attracts me. The thing I love more about CBGs, is the nature of building something out of nothing. Taking average, everyday material and creating an instrument that will fly you to the moon and forget about the world. I don't know if the word exists to describe the world of ingenuity CBGs are, but its dank, dirty, garage, gully and best of all, funky.
