Denis U commented on smojo's group The Brits are coming
"David, then short answer is that I haven't, bit I have built a couple from bits. They were really basic and worked very well. One will drive my twin 1960's 12  inch Celestion Greenback cabinet really well. I think this guy takes a 386…"

"Greg, if you don't mind waiting a while you could try one of these from China on eBay for £1.25. Just search "386 amplifier" on eBay"

Denis U replied to Shane Speal shanespeal.com's discussion Build The BATFINK Cigar Box Cello - Our most insane DIY instrument plans ever!
"I'm really struggling to fully understand the plans. Having watched the very informative video, I think I'm OK with the woodwork, but I can't seem to find the vibrato gizmo on the CB Gitty site. I thought it would be in the same…"

Denis U replied to RTZGUITARS's discussion HTF did you get the CBG addiction.
"I quit work early - about 15 years ago and had always thought about making a Tele. What put me off was fretting. I stumbled across a CBG kit on eBay from Bill Jehle which claimed to be easy. He was right. I built it and it worked. It came on holiday…"

First attempt!

"Look out Martin, you'll end up hooked like the rest of us. There are no CBG building rules. My own maxim is "everything that's easy was once hard" which is just a jazzed up way of saying things get better when I practice doing…"

"Reading the various reports of this on the web, it seems like a a typical of forgetting what your primary purpose is and thinking that because you are successful at making guitars you can diversify and trade on the brand name. The reports seem to…"

Denis U commented on smojo's group The Brits are coming
"I can't think of any reason why you can't play a CBG through a bass amp. In my (very) long ago youth, we plugged guitars bass and vocals through the same amp. Two things you might want to think are size and volume. It'll be a heavy…"

Denis U replied to Holly Hodson's discussion Output method in the group CBG wiring & electronics.
"I have a kids electric 6 string with built in amp and speaker and output for an external amplifier. I was going to try to get it playing, but it will never play in tune, so it's just gathering dust I'll PM you Denis"

Hey Denis, thanks for the friend request. It'd be great to jam some time, when we actually learn to play, since you're so close or just meet for a coffee and a chat about all things cbg. Glad to call you friend.

Dani and Bear.
