Its the weekend before memorial Day and I built as many 1 stringers as I could for this weekend.
I brought a total of 7 Didely Bows and 2 3 stringers.

I sold all the 1 stringers I had of the wood type Cigar box and 1 of the 3 stringers.
For the last couple of weekends I have noticed a trend in my area.
Paint it RED and its as good as sold,,,,,,.2 of the 1 stringers I painted RED ,1 with a matching red neck and 1 with a wood grain neck.
The ALL RED DB was the 1st to go out the door.the other was sold this afternoon.
My total for the weekend was,
8 DB's
1 3
I think this week will be a busy workshop week in between working my REAL job and trying to stay ahead of the demand.

I also added a new tool for my sales pitch, I now use my laptop on the table turned so customers can see a constant slide show of old instruments while I explain some of the history of the CBG.The public is FASCINATED with this CBG thing.and like they say ,"a picture is worth a 1000, words!"
