Sure Uncle John. I should have done a better sketch. :D)

Thanks for your comments Uncle John.The rough one was intended to be just a lash up to test a fret slot jig that my pal Chris made.It 's turned out probably closer to the ethos of CBG's than my usual over manicured stuff.Not very loud acoustically but great amplified.

Thanks Uncle John. I kinda figured it out after I sent you the text. I have to be in the pictures and videos section. Before I was just on the home page watching pictures slide by and wonder how can they be commenting. Thanks again

Wanted to say thanks for the comments on my 1st diddley bow. My question is, how did you do it? I'm trying to figure out how to get around on this site. I have a few people saying they like my photo but I don't see how they do it. That might be a facebook thing or is it? Any help would be appreciated.

Oklahoma 1936 License Plate #134-651      By John Bolton

I was made in late 1935 in the Oklahoma State Prison at Mc Alester. I was black with yellow letters. I was issued in Goodland County in 1936 and bolted on the rear of a gray and black 31' Ford coupe with a rumble seat. I couldn't see where we were going, but when the dust wasn't too bad, I could see where we'd been.

The Ford belonged to Gibson. He had a place in…
