what about the leftover strings?

I just completed my 2nd build, a cookie tin CBG done in a more primitive style with eyebolt tuners and wire brad frets. I used the leftover strings (1st, 2nd, and 6th strings) from the GLS set I…Continue

"It's my understanding that tuners should be installed with the shaft toward the guitar body, and the gear farther away. The logic to this is that the string tension on the shaft puts tension on the gear, and helps keep the string from…"

"I'm very dissapointed as well. Acording to the rules "It must be constructed out of 100% salvaged materials" It doesnt say there has to be an actual cigar box in the build. For the last 2 weeks, I've been putting together a…"

Jeff Scott replied to Mungo Park's discussion box size dellima (first build)
"I'm having the similar dellima. I'm putting together a Punch gran puro box with neck through, and I only have about 3/16" of clearance below the neck with the box closed. What concerns me is, with the neck pretty much dividing the box…"

Welcome Jeff to CBG Nation. Very nice CBGs, I especially like the round tin, but the wood box is very nice. Great job.

Howdy folks! I guess this is my first post. I'm thrilled to have found this place, and I appreciate the warm welcome. I've been lurkin about the site for a month or so and already completed my 1st CBG (I'll be postin pics shortly). I'm originally from Pa, but now in Tallahassee . I've always liked woodworking and have been pickin at my six strings for 30 years, finally I'm putting the two hobbies together.
Now, I'm having a great time tryin to figure out how to play this cbg, I cant believe what a great tone I got on my 1st try. I now have the parts on my workbench as I ready to start my #2
Thanks all
