Hey Ken,

I play the Bay about once ea. year, born and raised in Beaver Dam so... love dat cheese! I totally know what you mean re. Shane, a good man sharing addiction to cbg's!! What audio work do you do I ignorantly ask? :) =Glenn

Thank you. Michael is a great guy he has a short video with the cbg. Also over on my page if you check out the video I did with Ryan's cbg you'll get an idea of what they sound like. I have been at it a while now so my builds are pretty consistent. The other video to check out (if you're interested) is the short clip with JC's build. That's based on a two bottle wine box. The bigger box sure has a fuller/warmer sound. Thanks again for the invite....
