"This was the last guitar case I built. $20 or less to build, if you don't mind the weight, it is fun to build you're own.  I also made one out of Styrofoam, cost $15 just for the duct tape."

Cause the Blue rat replied to Kevin Keating's discussion Cases for CBG's
"For the cost I can buy a used guitar case. I look for ones without formed interiors. By the time I figure in the cost of latches, hinges and the wood it's only slightly cheaper than what I can pick up a used one for. "

Kevin Keating replied to Tom T's discussion 4-String Open G Tuning?
"DGBD is tuning for 5 string banjo minus the high 5th string. I like it. I use it on my cbg because I’m used to it from playing banjo. Both r G tunings actually. It just puts your root note G in a higher postion."
