Forgot to respond to your question Downtown Vinnie. See a few comments down for some of the details on how I do it. My approach is pretty hack-y but it does the job. In short, I run audio through GarageBand and video through PhotoBooth on a MacBook laptop. But any audio and video recording software will do. From there I throw it all together in iMovie, where I can do some screen-in-screen trickery. I think I posted a link to a tutorial I followed on YouTube as well. So check that out too if it’s helpful.

"WARNING", building CBG's can become addictive :-D, 3 great looking and sounding gits, and a very enjoyable video, and I think it's more than obvious that you have! played before, :-)

Thanks Dave! And yes you’re spot on. The Nighthawk guitar was my very first build. Was looking for a super cheap design to experiment with. Once I did that one, I was hooked!
