I finished my first CBG and I can't wait to start on another one. As soon as I find my cable for my camera I will post a picture of it. Seems like I have the bug and I want to build another.

By the way it is electric I hid the plug in behind the tail.

Well here is a picture of my first. You are right, I was at a thrift shop yesterday looking at every thing that was a box, or tin box thinking I could do this or that. I got 3 boxes at the house just crying for music to come out of them. I will try to get a vidio together. I am tring to talk my brother into one of these. But I will have to build it for him.

Yes, as the others have said, you're in for it. This is not a hobby. It is almost a disorder. Soon you won't be able to walk through an antique shop, thrift store, or private residence without thinking, "Hey, I could build a guitar outta that..." every few minutes.

"I'll just build one or two of these things and see what it's all about." --Me, about three months ago. Riiiight.
