That sounds like something I could really get into! I have a pretty long list of other projects I really want to complete before I start on building mics but I would welcome any recommendations for a first project when I get ready.

Hey man, been lax, busy scraping by, and distracted in general -- easieer to pick up a guita and play rahter than buckle down to finish the CBGs -- the whole living room is filled with half built stuff and tools and scraps...probably gonna finish a big build I have going for a friend (an avid cigar smoker who wants to gift a custom CBG to the president of La Flor Domingo with whom he's friends) -- but that's a real electric 6-stringer, so need to get a center block milled, glued, routed for neck pocket etc..I need to farm that out...I don't have a pro planer or any router...but will get my two CBGs done soonish...they're so close, just need wiring and hardware customized...then a quick stain etc...I hope you're well. Thanks for teh note. Will keep in touch.  ET
