Hello all. I'm David Wells from Columbia, SC. Played folk music professionally back in the '60's until the British invasion sort of shook things up. Been a traveling salesman since then. Never left music, but only played for self gratification. Getting totally immersed in the prospect of building instruments. Will be picking your brains via your posts and comments. thanks for being here.

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!
