That's cool Cindi! Having someone use one onstage is always a good thing for business :-) I have sold some to guys that play in bands in the Omaha area. Gets people talkin'. It's still a tough thing for me to watch someone walk away with one of my builds though, I am too emotionally attached I guess. But then I look at the money in my hand and I get better.......... kinda :-)

This CBG sold to some friends yesterday.  They have a band, so hopefully it will end up on stage and drum me up some business.  :)

Simple is usually best Cynthia :-) It has a nice tone.

Thanks for all of the kind and supportive comments guys!  The piezo pickup is a simple disc taped to the back, positioned just below the hasp.
