Unboxing Texas Themed CBG. I received this CBG from Kale at Poorness Studios in Dallas for our Texas CBG Swap-off. This was to commemorate the birth of Texas Statehood on March 2, 1836. I build one for Steve at Steve's Strings, San Antonio, he built one Kale in Dallas, and Kale built one for me in Houston.

It is great to see you play!  You and Kale are both definitely more skilled than I am at playing these 3-stringers!  I look forward to the next builder's swap!

I’ve now watched all three videos. What a great idea!!! Every builder and player has their own style and that is what makes cigar box guitars so much fun. I especially like seeing you three play the CBGs; that is the point after all. Making music! The Yellow Rose of Texas fingering was a fitting tribute! Well done guys!!!

You mean you're not 185 years old John? Ha ha.

Hey,  Texas and I have the same birthday.   Not the same year!   That is a very nice build.  Whoo-hooo, sounding good Bob.

You seemed to like it Bob. That's great news. It's fun to build instruments but more fun to see them bring joy to others. Thanks for filming/posting this.
