HI, do you live in the USA? 

The shipping on eBay is 4 dollars....but if i sold them off site I could sell them for 6 even or 5 for 25 and free shipping as i would not have to deal with all the eBay posting and bills...i bought almost a 100  to get a good deal....and i have to sell about half to recoup some money as i dont that many....Just let me know my email is -  john@reddogguitars.com  -  i can make you a package, i am just trying to sell them at or near cost. I will post this here and on your page

Thanks for the warm welcome. Didn't have time to look at my CBN page since I signed up. I'm here to learn and share too. Completed 5 builds so far and I consider myself a beginner.

Oh! Thank you for the warm welcome for this British CBG newbie.....or oldie to really as I've recently turned 70. Only came across the CBG phenomenon whilst visiting a guitar show back in March and my wife and I are well and truly hooked! Already put together a couple, one for each of us....and with the help of you guys on here, I hope they are the first of several more to come.
