I was looking for info on converting my electric 6-string into a two or three string, because I heard the Presidents of the United States of America played that way, and I could never wrap my head around a 6-string. I did find a page for that, but I also found pages for 3-string cigar box guitars. I remember reading about how to make cigar box guitars from an old Cub Scout manual I had, and I remember thinking "that's fricking impossible" but it always stayed in the back of my head. And now I make 'em!
Like I had commented earlier I am at the point where I am going to need some advice on a few last steps of the construction process. The biggy for me is locating the lipstick pick up, I need to determine the "sweet spot" or so I have been told. I figure that if there were a few guys getting together that have built CBG's this would be a perfect opportunity to get some hands on advice and see what everybody else is building. Please let me know if you plan on having a meet and greet anytime in the near future.
I live in the Southern suburbs and am about 3/4 of the way into the building of my CBG. I do not play guitar but really liked the idea of building one and I have gotten a little carried away. I would like to meet with your group and get some answers about a couple of items I need to finish up and than learn to play it.
