Hi Tim, a pleasure to be your friend.

At 8:41am on March 15, 2019, Uncle John said…

Hi, Tim.  I like your gutiars, especially the dog and the eye-bolt tuner builds.

At 6:07pm on March 8, 2019, Korrigan said…

Thanks Tim, I appreciate the kind words. There are definitely great folks here and a vast amount of knowledge archived in the forums... but it's not as active as it used to be. If you're a Facebook user you should check out some of the cigar box guitar groups there, it's a lot more lively. 

A few I belong to are:
Cigar Box Guitar
Fretless Cigar Box Guitars - Builders & Players Group
Cigar box guitar Builders owners and players

Many thanks for your comment, Tim. I decided that good old steel braces, steel bolts and plenty of steel screws were the way forward to getting a solid build with less chance of vibration and buzzing. Seems to have worked out OK and gives the option of taking it all apart again for future modifications - although I'd rather not!

thank you Tim, talk soon, wood, wood, wood. love the amp, "speaker grill" never grows old.

Hi Tim, and welcome to the obsession. This is Grandpa, here in La Habra, CA (N. Orange County). Been buildin' about 4 1/2 years, have made a bunch of gits. Give me a call if you want to talk about gits and building. I don't know about any local cbg fests, but I have a couple of "show and sell" events I'm attending over the next couple of months if you're interested.

Reach out--(562) 458-2881.

Later.

That’s looking good Tim I’m sure it will sound great every one you build has it own voice to be found looking forward to a sound check . 

At 2:20am on January 23, 2019, Jeff 'Bones' Reilly said…

Gday TIM glad to have you onboard enjoy the fun and best of all no rules . Regards Jeff .

Tim check out the profile pages of Jeff “Bones” Reilly & Rev. Todd Hansen, if you’re looking for cbgs with offset necks?
