The first two photos here are of my newest addition to the CBG world...portable Cigar Box Amplifiers. These are powered by a 9 volt battery and work great with CBG's or standard electrified guitars except for basses. Future builds will include AC adapters to reserve battery power and/or extend playing time.
All but one of my CBG builds are four-string and set up as baritone ukulele (A-D-F#-B).
The CBG with wing-tip trim is electric/acoustic with a lipstick pickup. The neck is local rock maple. The autograph is from Matt Andersen, who is a local blues musician in Nova Scotia who travels with Stewart MacLean ( The Vinyl Cafe ). I intended to sell this one, but it is too fun to play.
The second CBG was donated and auctioned off at a local fundraising event for a family that lost their house and barn to a fire last winter.
