Well played troubles!

Hi Clarky, Richard and Derek, thanks for the comments guys.

I always try for good acoustic tone first, thats where the challenge lies. I have three different  acoustic models of CBG style guitars that I build. And the sound quality is different as you go up the range. I have plywood timbers [cheapest] then the style played here solid pine with good volume and pleasing tone, and the one I will feature next video with solid rosewood back and sides and a cedar top. Now that sounds nice. But you can be the judge.

Thanks for posting on YouTube Taffy! Real nice singing and playing!  Acoustic quality is superb!

That was excellent Taffy.  That guitar sounds like it was made for ragtime blues.  Nice voice too.

Hey Bob, Keith and Dave thanks for the encouraging comments.

Keith, I did a fair bit of experiment to get the best acoustic sound I could from a very limited sound chamber. while also keeping in mind the Golden Ratio - I think its called.  I'll have to use utube from now on to post videos.

Thanks again. Taff

Wow, another good video. Nice build too. Could listen to your videos all day long. You sing very well too. Like the size of the box too.

Seen and heard loud and clear. Neat performance, excellent!

I don't know if this will be visible to you guys who missed out, but I tried.
