Unboxing a CBG from the 2021 TX Triangle Builders Swap

To celebrate Texas' 185th Birthday, I partnered with two other Texas builders to do a 3-way CBG swap. We call it the 2021 TX Triangle Builder's Swap and you can read more about it here: https://cigarboxnation.com/profiles/b...​

I built and instrument to send to the Houston builder and I'll post that video in the next day or two. Likewise, each of the recipients will post a video of the instrument they receive. This was a really fun event to participate in.

I think we need to make it an annual event Steve. Maybe start including a few more builders.

Thank you all for the comments!  I loved making this build, knowing it was going to someone who was as passionate about CBGs as I am, and who I knew could bring life to it much better than I can!  I also loved to see the creativity in all the builds!  I would love to do this again!

Thanks Bob and John. All 3 guitars and very different but all are great. Bob has a very polished and detailed style. My style is more rustic and homespun. Steve's is somewhere in the middle. That's what makes CBG's great... they're all different.

Wow.  That's a San Antonio Rose of a guitar.  A master build.   And I would be thrilled by that big acoustic sound.  Sounds good plugged too.  Man, Kale.  You built a nice one too.  I bet you are glad you did a lot more than a basic build as this is turning out.

Steve did a great  and so did you!  I like the acoustic sound that comes from this build.  The Texas theme was well done also including the sound hole cut outs.  Lots of neat features.  Also, great presentation of  Steve's CBG build!
