I'm not really used to this "Ning" thing, and I still have to discover how things work
on here, so I don't know where I need to post a presentation of myself on this forum...
ok, let's try here :D
After a long time at reading and listening to Cigar Box Nation, I finally took

And boy does it suck!!

After I finished my oldest son's CBG , I made this little ditty using the three CBGs that I had built to date. Normally I play a lot of blues but, this one came out.....different.
I'll post some pics of these units later. My youngest son's three string features a wammy bar!

If you interested in the DiY-way of the CBG-making, the full link is this:
As I mentioned, this is commented in Hungarian, but the pictures are clear, I… Continue
