This is the first blog entry of my entire life! I just started my first CGB project last night and hope to get some pictures up as soon as I can. My next project is to build a CGB amp. There a dozen ways to do it, so hopefully I'll find the right plan for me. I am going to use a cube shaped cigar box to enclose the 3" speaker and the electronics. I haven't worked with electronics in long while so this should be a hoot!
What draws me to the CGB is the simplicity of the concept, the sound that a CGB can put out, the ability to create something cool from what some people might throw away, and the chance to interact with others with a common interest.
I have been blown away at some of the intricate designs that others have produced. My initial goal is to produce a playable guitar that is playable and cool to show my friends and family. Then I hope to make some guitars for my three sons for their enjoyments. After that, I'll see where this "hobby" takes me. I like the combination of the creative, technical, and musical challenges that the CGB culture brings together. Thanks to all those who have influenced my first design without knowing it and thanks in advance for all of the advice I'll be seeking during my builds.
