Hello Everyone, Doug Hanson here. I just joined after discovering cgbs. I love em. Can anyone remoned a builder who can make me a baritone 6 sting cgb? I know Ted can do one but he is tied up with a project till mid october. Just wondering if anyone knew of someone else who does baritone 6 strings. Also, any info AT ALL on cgb baritones would be appreciated much. Thanks
Hey Doug, as I said on the phone, 2 weeks ago I would have jumped on it. I'm sure someone here will be happy to help.
Oh yes Ted and even if I find another builder I am gonna have you build me one when you finish your current project. I was just wondering if anyone elese could do one....Ill call you 2nd week in Oct. Thanks Ted
Who is John Lowe?
John Lowe is known as Johnny Lowebow, builder of the Lowebow, not quite what you are looking for, but an awesome builder and insane player. He makes a hybrid instrument with a couple guitar strings and a bass string, and stereo output like some of mine - bass amp and guitar amp.
But Johnny is a one man band performer you have to see in person. Here's a vid I shot a few years back
Dam Doug, maybe you should keep bugging me to get something quick...
Hey, thatd be great if you could do it but I dont want you to be in a big hurry doing it. If you can pull it off by all means yeah but if it would put you in a rush Id rather wait till your done with your current project.
