gary herget replied to Rich Butters's discussion Cigar Box Dimentions and Wood Thickness
"I would use Mahogany, it will work the best of the three for boxes. As far as thickness, I would try to keep it 3/16 or less if you can. Heavier thicknesses will work just not as well. dimensions are up to you and the size of material available."

gary herget replied to Robbie's discussion Has anyone used a surface mounted flat humbucker pickup on their license plat guitars?
"I recently put 2 MGB flat buckers on an LPG, only had to drill small holes for wires and cover plate screws. Decided that the small amount of damage was worth it, and it truely was!!"

Story of Dan 2.0 at the STL FEST

Posted on June 6, 2017 at 10:34pm 10 Comments

Dan Sleep attended the 2016 fest and surprised everyone, wasn't sure he would come. He must've had a good time because he said he would be back.

Talked with him via email and he asked if he sent a photo would I stick it in a corner then he would feel like he was there. I said that I would make it happen. Checked with others to see if my idea to make a life size image of Dan would…

Gary, just read your "Mr. Keys Guitar" post, Very nice. I know pick, don't know you, but would like to. curious, my friend has a saw mill that can be pulled as a trailer. helped cut a bunch of wood and a nice piece of walnut, the kept warping. how long did you need to dry your poplar wood? Here's a photo where we cut some rather green oak for friends truck bed. HEAVY.

I picked up a CBG kit at the latest festival in St. Louis and wondered if you know who I can talk to to get more. There is no contact info in the kit. Thanks!
