Howdy! Come on in, have a browse around - Any ideas you see, feel free to use them on your own builds, leave some feedback, ask some questions.... if I can help, I will.
Most important though - Enjoy yourself!
I do :o)

If you are looking to buy a cbg, I am based in the UK and always have a dozen or more finished guitars in stock and for sale. I usually have a few other interesting odditities too! Drop me a line to discuss your requirements, or check out my website at www.randyroosterscigarboxguitars.com

All the best

Post show blues

Posted on October 27, 2009 at 6:23am 1 Comment

Long time since I did a blog.



The Birmingham show was an absolute blast! Met some really great folk, took home some great ideas and knowledge and enjoyed every second of it - a huge thank you to Chickenbone John and his team for organising everything - Im already looking forward to next years!!

I took 18 cbgs and diddly bows down eventually I think, and it was fantastic to see everyone playing them and enjoying them - thats what its all about right?



Since the show… Continue

Seems time to do another blog I guess - seen as Im now on build 14 I think!
Not that theres a lot to say (especially when I could be in the shed working on the current one), but needless to say Im happy :o)

Bring on Birm-ing-ham!!

Builds and errors

Posted on March 21, 2009 at 3:08pm 0 Comments

So, build #1 is done, bar some annoying little sound issues, and Im well into build #2. But what do you do with all these guitars??? The 'studio' is now overflowing (its a VERY small room!).

Iv learnt a lot about guitar building that Id never have learnt building electrics, which is really great... though theres stilla lot to learn. And I cant really play slide yet either, but its coming.

Anyhoo, the laquer should be nearly dry now so Im gonna bolt up #2 just to see how it all looks… Continue

Randy Roosters (or not)

Posted on February 25, 2009 at 6:30am 0 Comments

Hey guys, this group is addictive... so many good people around :o)

Anyways, I guess I should point out my real name is Ben Moor.... not Randy Rooster!

I was just trying to think up a cool name that had that CBG 'sound' to it... y'know like 'Red dog guitars', or 'Chicken Bone John' or Hollowbelly'... something bluesy....

I was really struggling until my rooster came past the window, jumped on 4 of his hens in quick succession, gave a nonchalant nod, and strolled on by.... so… Continue

Just discovered CBGs!

Posted on February 24, 2009 at 11:28am 0 Comments

Wow!
Well Iv just discovered this whole CBG scene, got me a 3 string, and am now concentrating on building more CBGs and less solids!!
Great to see so many people building and sharing tips and advice... much less elitist than the 'electric' world... I feel right at home!!

Hi RM
about the boxes pictured. I'm across in North Norfolk, so in the UK. I've literally just collected them from the auction yesterday so haven't really gone through them fully.
I have a show to get out of the way this weekend (we deal in vintage eyewear) so once that's over and done with I'll have time to go through them and takes some photo's and measurements etc.
What I can do is send you some pictures of the larger boxes across as I do so if you email me at darren@deadmensspex.com . Also let me know what sizes are best for you.
 
There are a lot of boxes. I'll be keeping some but the rest will be up for grabs (we need the room :oD )
All the best
Darren

Once again, sorry I can't make it this year to Boxstock. Can I give my official apologies for not being at the HGMC AGM too?

I like the CB Banjo, always wondered why the bottom bit had to be round, so need to find a few bits in my workshop and get started on one.

Some extremly cool guitars on your photos Randy! Have you ever thought about doing a Flying V shaped CBG? I'd love a Flying V styled four string fretted guitar for really rocking out to some Classic Rock CBG style! Let me know if it takes your fancy!

thanks, this should help, or confuse the hell out of me.
