I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
thanks again Mark. the part you ask about is a cabinet hinge, i cut the hinge part off and use it for a bridge, the other part i use for the tail. if you go to my pics and go to page 4, look at the first pic there, cbg 002, you will see what i did. it works great.
Re: Rough Havanas cbg. The bridge is just a bolt with the head cut off. Coarse thread, so the strings will sit in the 'valleys' and not jump out. Same goes for the nut, though smaller diameter. Very common to do this.
Thanks Mark! I am honored. As Shane mentioned, One String Willie is the one string wizard. I also really like WillardJ designs. Beautiful work. Although my design is a bit different, I built this the day after I met Willie after a show. Don't let his mean looks fool you. A great guy, musician, and inspiration. If Willie or Willard is unable to help you out, let me know.
I would also like some details on how one would go about writing an article for you in the future. I have a music and art background and I am always creating.
