Hey again everyone!Ok, as an ex engineer and mad inventor, i want to know what you would consider in your basic/ must have cbg build kit. Oh and throw in pics of tools, gadgets and your creation…Continue
"Hey Bluesheart. Just found this thread and i know it goes back a few years. Could you tell me how you wired up the input jack? It looks to me that most of the prenade pre amps have a 2.5mm jack for a rod piezo. I'd like to do the same as…"
"and I've found myself back in this thread again....
So, I bit the bullet and signed up as a full time member of the local maker-space. Just completed my first month trial and now have my own key so can go down anytime day or night.…"
"Bob, I like that and might steal your design. One thing to consider to give it an even simpler/cleaner look is to screw it to the wall through the peg holes, and then tap the dowels in after driving in the screws. Thanks for the photo!"
"Yeah at 30km away it does makes you think if its worth it! Luckily my local one is only a few miles across town. Also looking forward to the possibility of laser cut stuff, could be fun and interesting. Ultimately i think im gonna visit ours for a…"

Which sound hole covers? Aaaargh!!!!
Oh no! I just had to stop myself from hitting add to cart about fifty times while window shopping on cb gitty! I only went on to look for some components for the next build and most importantly some more picks after my last one flew outta the car window on the way to work this morning. Supposed to be saving money for the wifes birthday so dont think it would have gone down well ☺
