Looking for a fretted 3 string CBG

Hows everyone doing?           I am looking for a decent fretted 3 stringer. I have made several fret-less guitars but I would like a nice fretted one. I would like it to easily be played with and…Continue

You build some nice CBG's. Got any picks of the innards? As I was looking at picks I thought I saw a build in which the neck did not go through the entire box. Is it possible to do that?

This is my first attempt to build a CBG. I hope that they only get better. I see that you have built a few. Very Nice ones, too. My big problem right now is learning to play it. I have never played a guitar so I really don't have a clue on how to learn. I see you are from Akron, could I impose on you for some guidance?

Okay Jefferson. Now I understand your email. Yes, Jay is here on the Nation.

Here is the Keni Lee Relic in action:

If you are in the market for a quality CBG, he is definitely one of the better builders to consider in your selection. Enjoy, Keni Lee

Yeh, don't sweat it, I of course realize not everyone has the kind of patience for detail as i do, but the rustic look you achieved is what i have problems with. Roughin' up stuff i put a lot of work into is not my strong point. Everyone seems to like what i do, and digs my designs, but ya wanna know the secret, a lot of planning and getting proportions right so everything kinda flows and looks (right) together.

Here's my version of cross sound holes.
