Hi! I set up a group for CBG players in and around the Twin Cities. It'll be a great way to network with local players, start up jam groups, teach, learn, and play. Join if you're interested!

ok to answer a few questions cause i think i confused you sorry bout that. 1st answer is yes the biscuit sets on all three cans in the arturo fuente tri-can resonator. 2nd answer is the flux capacitor was removed from the arturo fuente box[not enough room in it]so i attached the cans to the lid then i put the flux capacitor into the old world box with taller cans attached to it. the flux capacitor does not touch the lid in the old world box the whole unit floats and the biscuit attached to the flux capacitor is only a resting spot for the bridge biscuit,so there will actually be 2 biscuits.the last answer is i did not want the bottom of the cans to touch the lid originally but that was the only way to make it work in the arturo fuente box and it turned out a little better than i expected it to. hope this helps.

my first one that is finished had shallow cans but i could not fit the flux capacitor[the three plates connected to da buiscuit] in the box with it. so i just screwed the lid of the box to the cans or rather screwed the cans to the lid of the box. then cut the buiscuit hole in the lid without the cans in it so the buiscuit sets on all three cans. when its all put back together.

Hey Weizel!

I shaped the majority of that headstock with various woodfiles... big, large flat ones for the triangle shape, and I have this very thin, round file which is almost a perfect match for the threaded rods I use for nuts. The triangle part took a LONG time to do, but the nut-groove went pretty quick.

Thanks for checkin' in!

Welcome aboard, Dustin! You will find lots of helpful people and information here on all things CBG (CBU, CBB, etc.). Feel free to poke around, ask questions, and post your stuff (photos, recordings, video, etc.).

Most of all, have fun!

Well Dustin, If you have caught the CBG bug, then the only hope for you is the CB Nation.

They are there for you when ever you need help but beware of the "No rules" bug that will surely get you.

Don't worry there is a cure for it.
