I had some electric stove burner covers from when we bought the house. The small ones are 8" in diameter and I figured they would work out just fine. I have it tuned dgbd and to my ears it sounds great, almost like it is being played through an amp.

Now I need to learn how to play.

This is my 10th CBG:

25" scale, the resonator is a 4" drain screen it is not fasten to the sound board. It has been attached to the neck through body at its center of the drain screen and floats with no contact to sound board. A center tap rod piezo is under the bridge and there is a 5dolla make it holla pickup near the end of the fret board. They are hooked together in series but I wish or should have installed a 3-way switch. 

Well heck anyone know why they show up sideways?
