Hi Duncan, I can see Ju has already been warning you about my banjo habit.  I think secretly he's jealous.  Me and Ju have been talking about getting to a gig soon so we will give you a shout and we can all hook up.

Up the Sheffield Massive!

Hiya mate

yep me and anthony are on the look out some gigs in sheffield or round abouts if you fancy heading out with us some time i'll give you a shout - went to check out Catfish Keith last November over at Maltby it was a wicked gig - if you ever get chance go and see him

looks like you made a fine job of your first two builds keep up the good work - i started building CBG's in 2008 - built around 20 so far and about 120 pickups - just on with two of the Plank guitars now ...keeps me active lol!

I've used both 650 and 604 scale lengths.I usedthe 604 on a Gran Corona box like yours in the photo ..this gave 23 frets when the fingerboard continued over the box front to a conventional sound hole ..thought the proportions looked right.


You'll find a good fret calculator at Manchesterguitartech.co.uk
