In your price range, a very quality build would be no problem.   I have a website that is inactive.  That is my next project in the "retirement" business plan....


Your builds look very nice.

Wayne, I saw your post about looking for builders to pass your referals to.  I'm getting ready to retire and am setting up a shop that I could comfortably do 5 quality builds a week.  If you want to know about be as a builder, drop Shane Speal a line.  He has several of my builds.  I have over 400 builds to date and take special pride in very playable 3 and 4 string fretted CBGs, although I can do other things too.


My concern would be the price range you are selling in.  If your customers are looking for $ 75 CBGs, I'm probably not your guy.  Twice that and I can build a nice CBG for them.


Let me know if you have any questions.  you can email me directly at wichitasam@yahoo.com
