Oh! Thank you for the warm welcome for this British CBG newbie.....or oldie to really as I've recently turned 70. Only came across the CBG phenomenon whilst visiting a guitar show back in March and my wife and I are well and truly hooked! Already put together a couple, one for each of us....and with the help of you guys on here, I hope they are the first of several more to come.
