The folks over at CB Gitty sent me one of their new Hubcap Howler kits to build. I'm thankful they thought of me. It's very similar to their Mountain Tenor kit but with a resonator cone. I really like the way the kit turned out. I decided to tune it in Chicago tuning (D-G-B-E).

Happiness all over your face playing this beauty tells the story.  Great video, solid as usual with loads of information and ideas.

Thanks Doug. You are correct. I can't leave anything stock.

BrianQ that totally sounds like a hobo nickname. :-)

Way kool color combo on that one!! I saw the title & thought it sounded like the name of an ol’ hobo :)

The guitar looks and sounds great. The dark stain with the red top is a great combination. I like that you never leave anything stock; you always add some personal touches (improvements) to take your instruments to the next level!

Thanks AD. The demo was electric. I used my small orange amp with a bit of overdrive and reverb. It sounds really cool with that resonator cone.

Looks cool specialy whit the darker stain ,(whitch i whoed have done on the front aswell), now did you have it amp up for that sound demo or was that acousticly?  that ready made system seem to build real eazy and quick ! now you can catch up on your sliding !

Nice job, nice sound and very nice of Gitty too!

Thanks Dave. I really like this tuning. I don't think I would've liked it as much with the GDGB tuning. Although I really like that tuning for slide.
