ILL GREEN replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Jack/Strap Combo
"Depends if its a stereo or mono jack.  The two small pins are your positive, both need to connect with a single wire if you going mono. For stereo, one is hot the other cold and ground remains as ground."

ILL GREEN replied to Michael Pounds's discussion Lacquer on antique box?
"I'd use acrylic-lacquer spray. Dries in minutes, so you can layer maybe 6 or 7 coats before the can finishes in 2 hours or so. There's also acrylic-polyurethane spray, which is just as good."

ILL GREEN replied to Arthur Payne's discussion Why have a switch? in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"Couple of ways to have a no-toggle-switch guitar. But all root to how the pickups were made. One should be north and the other, south. Both can be wounded the same direction. The positive becomes the ground and the negative becomes the hot of one…"

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.
