So I bought a few Gittybuckers a while back and am wondering the best way to mount them (on the guitar that is).I was also considering putting a strip of Velcro on it then one from the neck to the bridge so I could experiment with placing it in different possitions.  Since it is magnetic, maybe even a strip of metal it could attach to. Any thoughts on this?KevinSee More

The thought that I can make music out of junk I have laying around really amazes me. I have also attended the Sunflower River Blues and Gospel festival in Clarksdale, MS the last few years and have seen many homemade guitars and Diddley Bows.

Kevin, can you take a shift as designated bus driver?  Hey, I made a nice little tinjo out of one of the tins from you.  Photos posted.  Maybe a video later.

Mornin' Kevin. Glad to be your CBN friend, thanks. Just happened to be on the site this AM. I got a couple of support posts on my back porch that might become D-bows come Spring.  Sorry, but I will have to tell my girl you were one one who inspired me - she won't go as far from us as Iowa to hunt you down for  a whoopin' though... ;)

Kevin, I like your take on the canjos with the aluminum beer bottles.  Hey, did you realize that I am in Harlan?  How is your playing going?

Mailing boxes for CBG's

Posted on September 18, 2019 at 10:02am 7 Comments

Since I have enough CBGs around, I send most of the ones I make to other people, not a lot, but some.  I have sent them as for as Italy, to Oklahoma and now have one that goes to southern Texas. I have looked for boxes the right size for mailing, but they want me to buy 25-50 of them at a time for more money than I want to spend.  I think it would be a great idea if you guys at CBN would offer mailing boxes for sale.  Something like a 38 x 6 x 10 would work great for me, and sell them one to…
