Hey guys, this group is addictive... so many good people around :o)
Anyways, I guess I should point out my real name is Ben Moor.... not Randy Rooster!
I was just trying to think up a cool name that had that CBG 'sound' to it... y'know like 'Red dog guitars', or 'Chicken Bone John' or Hollowbelly'... something bluesy....
I was really struggling until my rooster came past the window, jumped on 4 of his hens in quick succession, gave a nonchalant nod, and strolled on by.... so… Continue

Well Iv just discovered this whole CBG scene, got me a 3 string, and am now concentrating on building more CBGs and less solids!!
Great to see so many people building and sharing tips and advice... much less elitist than the 'electric' world... I feel right at home!!

http://s275.photobucket.com/albums/jj317/WichitaSam/?action=view¤t=WS95008.jpg Hey Ya'll, All the talk about reso's got me stirred up. I decided to go low tech and do a paint can lid (quart size) reso... It's a test build for a future custom I am doing for a dobro player. Your basic Don Tomas box, oak neck thru (blinded off inside the box), mahogany fretboard, fretless, a quart paint can lid, corian… Continue

Alright folks. I haven't blogged in awhile. I was waiting for the moment I start on my 3rd CBG. This one is going to be cool. I'm alternating Poplar and red oak strips for the neck. I have a Partagas box eagerly waiting to metamorphisize into a CBG. Kinda like that ugly old caterpillar cocooning into a butterfly. I broke down and bought a Dremel kit so I can do some cool stuff. My dog generously supplied me once again with a nice, aged bone for the nut. The bridge and saddle I'm not sure of… Continue

Captain Burlap & the 40-Watt Spark were at it again opening a CBG show at Lapeer Music/Cup of Joe's Soundstage. Cap'n opened the show on CBG Jar-Tar #11 followed by Sparky and his originals.
Sparky played Eddie the Wonder Lizard's "Space Man".
Gerry Thompson played 2 of his CBGs and all originals. He was accompanied by Charmin Diggs on his homemade CBG banjo and later by the Cap'n on Ray #9.
Charmin Diggs played an original.

My "Southern Classic" cigar box guitars resulted from a trip I made to the heart of the Delta Blues country - New Orleans. Throughout the French Quarter of New Orleans and all along the gulf coast, the trials, tribulations, and community bonds are woven deeply into the resonating sound of their music. From stories of the Depression, to long lost loves, mystery, and all the emotions that ebb and flow from a lifetime of Southern living, I'd found a style of music that fed into my passion for art… Continue
