"Shane, Awesome Video and once again, your playing inspires me to play more.  I love the build but have a Lot of room to grow where playing them is concerned.  Thanks for reviewing the Shovelcaster! - Bob"

Maple

"A local furniture manufacturer viewed these solid 1"x2"x84" (actual dimensions) as "Scrap Wood"... I relieved him of that burden.  If used just for necks, there are 684 just waiting for a box.  :-)"

 Bob,  I really encourage you to view knotlenny's CBG 101 on youtube.  I has helped me an hundreds of other folks.

Good deal, Bob and thanks for your message and service.  And welcome to a great hobby.  How is the playing going?  knotlenny's cbg 101 helped me the most.

Hey, Bob.  I really liked the chief.  Now after seeing your USN ring icon, I am guessing you might be a retired CPO. 

I used to be in a little band/ singing group called CPO.  In our case it was Chamber Pot Orchestra.

It's good to have you for a CBN friend.
