Thank you, BrianQ. . I am pretty excited about all this. You all look like a great bunch. But I have a question, please: Is there a teacher or mentor who can help me get started? I live in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. I'd love some help from an experienced player to speed me along on this exciting journey. Thanks for any help. Les Potter

My First CBG is going to be made with a snapper turtle shell, 3 strings, poplar neck ( I already have these things ). Haven't decided how i'm going to close up the back of the shell yet, maybe just a 1/4 inch birch ( from 1 of my flooring jobs) cut to fit. Any ideas would be helpful. Also have not decided on what kind of pickup to use. Thanks, Bob.
