Hi my name is Ben,

I first got into building CBGs out of curiosity and 6 months later I was invited by a friend of mine to help out with my own brand of production for the Harley Davidson 110th anniversary event with a part in a booth in "Artisan Alley" at the Harley Museum. We built 12 guitars in 3 months and sold 7 (of ours) in 2 days. I'm not bragging, I just think it was a really cool opportunity that made for some even cooler stories :) Thanks for your time, and I hope to enjoy my time here with all of you and learn as much as I can from the collective genius here :)

Hey Pinhead any videos?

Comment by Pinhead on October 11, 2013 at 9:45am

Oops... well I guess you all got my message... haha.

Comment by Joseph Bento on October 7, 2013 at 10:53am

Hello, my name is Joe

I'm trying to post this message again, as yesterday I was having issues with word wrap as well as making the mistake of sending my initial post to all members. (Sorry)

I play 6-string acoustic and electric, albeit poorly, primarily due to my lack of discipline and practice habits.  I've recently developed an interest in CBG's since I like to make things. 

I'm an electronics technician by trade, and enjoy old vacuum tube gear as a hobby.  I've posted a couple photos of bread tin tube amps I have built.

I'm looking forward to learning from the wealth of experience that is present in on this website.

Joe

Welcome, with your background you'll be rockin' in no time!

Comment by phizog on September 2, 2013 at 9:18pm

Yo,

I am retired and fulltime RVer in the good old USA.  Live on the road and am able to spend time on my interest of building and playing musical instruments.  I did build a nice mountain dulcimer last winter while in Texas.  Next on the agenda are some cigar box guitars.   I also play blues harp.   Found this group while doing research on building the Dulcimer and look forward to exploring the site.  Thanks to Ted for setting it up.

 

Bob

Welcome to the madness Greg. You have an advantage over me with your musical background. Looking forward to seeing your first CBG.
