Hi everyone,

I'm Mickey, and I am from Arizona.  I've been building CBG's for about a year now, and it is safe to say it has become a full blown obsession.  Looking forward to learning from people here!

Comment by Dennis Danner on March 8, 2015 at 8:14pm

Hey there everyone!  Happy to have found this group.  It looks like it will be very worthwhile to me.  I am a ukulele "enthusiast" and have been playing for just shy of 3 years.  I began building not too long ago and have built two tenor ukes, and more recently a solid-bodied U-Bass and nearly have the second one complete.  I've been wanting to jump into building Cigar Box ukes and have just today started what will be my third ukulele Bass and unless things change during construction  (been known to happen!) it should be my first cigar box instrument.   I am a retired wildlife biologist and wildlife sculptor and I live in Roanoke, VA.  I hope anyone with short scale bass and especially ukulele basses with their fat, rubbery silicone or polyurethane strings will holler back at me and send a friend request or message.  Happy to be here!

Hi y'all. I'm very new to all of this. I have re-discovered CBG and have been bitten. I hope to get to know, at least, a few of you here. I bought my very first box just today.

I'll be posting pics of my box and the build on instagram. @karmasonic1

Thanks for letting me play! Stay Primal!

Comment by Andy Toms on September 24, 2014 at 2:16am
Hello my name is Andy, I am yet to start my first instrument build but have a wealth of electronics assembly and wiring experience, so I think I may make my first project a trick looking amplifier, maybe as one of my other hobbies is computer building then I shall make. It look like a PC, not finalised a plan as I have lots going on right now, but I will get there
Comment by Ole Christensen on September 15, 2014 at 1:40pm

Hi all

My name is Ole and according to the member map, I'm the first one in Denmark :-)
I just started playing guitar 2 years ago and 2-3 months ago I got my first 3 string CBG. Now I have expanded to 3 CBG's so I can play along with friends visiting.

I have not build my own guitars yet, but maybe in the future. For now I'm just trying to learn to play and I'm having fun doing it :-)

Hello,
My name is Gary. I just started making Strumstick instruments and having a bunch of fun with them. I am on my fifth build right now.
I am a conventional machinist by trade so I am able to use my experience in the shop to build a quality nice sounding instruments. I am very interested in seeing what other folks are making.
Thank you!

Hello Dan, James here. Sounds like you have the will to try something and i feel sure you will do fine. Welcome.

Comment by Dan Mullen on March 6, 2014 at 4:02am

Hello ever one I'm Dan.  I have recently started on my 1st (well... 1st five) cigar box guitars.  I have no idea how to play so this should be quiet the learning experience.  I made some Kalimba's for my daughters and wife for Christmas and they turned out great, so maybe with a bit more effort these will also.

Comment by Ian Cunningham on February 14, 2014 at 5:30pm

G'day from Australia! My name is Ian Cunningham and I've been making cigar box guitars, basses and ukeleles for several years.I've been fortunate enough to be able to have a permanent display in a local art gallery, where I've sold a few. Mostly, I sell by word of mouth and often make to order. It's a great hobby! I also play bass in a local retro rock'n'roll band...can't keep a good man down!
