Greetings. I'm David Standridge in New Berlin, Wisconsin (just outside Mikwaukee). I made my first CBG from an RG Dunn box my dad had in his garage for as long as I can remember. That was about 4 years ago. And I haven't stopped..! Looking forward to learning from all here.

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!

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
