Jonas in a cigar box

I'm a 30 year old, father of 2 daughters who live in the little orwellian country called Sweden.
I have mostly worked as an elecronics technician at a big mobile phone system manufacturer but I'm currently unemployed.

I have played both electric and acoustic guitars for a while but quite frankly I'm bored of it so this seems like a nice change.
My other interests are mountainbiking, hiking, paintball, computers, pretty much anything electrical, Aikido and whisky. One thing i have thought about is making a whisky box guitar (if i could ever find a wooden whisky box that fits the build that is).

I'm planning on building a 3-stringed CBG and a 2-stringed bass CBG both with active pre-amp/filters for a start.

Build started!

Yesterday me and JK had a day of work in the workshop so I started carving the neck to the 3 string and the material I use is oak.

I'm pretty pleased how the rounding on the neck turned out and I will most probably only sand it using low grit paper because i really like the "silky" finish.



The design will be very basic as it's my first build and i will mostly try to learn and get into the thinking.

Next week we will continue building and i'll also try to bring a camera this… Continue

Welcome Jonas,
May all your building efforts be worthwhile as this will start to take over your life.
Have fun with the build and don't worry if it does not turn out quite like you expected because wil acn improve with your techniques as you build numbers 2 and 3 and 4 and 5 and 6. Need I go on?
Loads of very helpful people on the nation with any questions so don't be afraid to ask, I have, and I got a lot of assistance in all areas.
Post pics of your build when it is done, we are always interested.

Hello,
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
