Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
Random youtube searching a few years ago turned up Richard Johnston on Beale-I was hooked on CBGs from the moment I saw it. I've made it my mission to build a Lowebow style guitar-I have a pretty good plan, but I need advice for pickups...That research has brought me here.
What instruments are you building or playing?
I've built my first crash-course CBG- A 3 stringer fret-less slide guitar with a single Piezo disk. It plays OK, but it's a little finicky...The lessons learned were the best thing I got out of it. I am now gathering all of the supplies I need to build a Lowebow.
