"i'll add my two cents. cool, lots of CBG's have the pickup going directly to the jack so this would be very convenient. What about slicing one penny in half, so it would be a single cent pre-amp? "

"I think so too. I use pennies in a lot of my builds, so it just made sense to do heads & tails for input & output. "

"Pretty good idea to put the pre-amp and the EQ in a box. Makes everything cheaper to build and make those piezos sound a lot better. All it's missing is a bypass switch in case you miss the crappy sound ;-)"

"I just gifted away an old 3 with and equalizer and it sounded great.  I have another to put into a guitar sometime soon.  Kind of cold and snowy now."

"That's a good idea Unc, but in the meantime check out Shane Speal's excellent demo video of a rod piezo equipped cbg with one of these preamp/eq's fitted; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1G_T-4c7bPg It gives a really good idea of…"

What do you find most interesting about cigar box guitars? (If you do not enter something meaningful here, your membership may be rejected).
I find it incredible that you can build a real legit instrument from a cigar box, a piece of wood, & basically whatever else you can find laying around. Each one is unique and completely customizable. I can't even describe the feeling the first time I strummed my first CBG. It was amazing that I built it with my own two hands & I had watched a ton of youtube videos but I was not prepared for the amount of sound it actually put out. It blew me away that I had created a real, function instrument that looked & sounded like it does. Of course it goes without saying how fun they are to play & I'm consumed with ideas for more builds. They're just awesome to design, build & play.

Gutter Guard Sound Hole Covers

Posted on November 4, 2018 at 12:45pm 5 Comments

Here's a tip I thought I would share. I actually discovered this by accident on my first build. It's just an old piece of gutter guard I found laying around. I thought it might make cool looking sound hole covers. So, I cut it to size, lined it up with the sound holes & used little screws & nuts to attach them to the inside of the lid. Mission accomplished. To my surprise there was an unintended result. They resonate like crazy, but in a good way. It actually gives an accoustic CBG a…

Hey, Steebos.   I like your builds and loved that back porch jam.  I just went and heard it again.  You have a cool name or nick-name too.  I wish I was closer to that good St. Louis CBG club.  I've been there once and had a good time.  Thanks for the CBN friendship.

Glad to be a Nation Friend Steebos.
