Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
i started building CBG's couple yrs back. built 4 so far, ready to use real frets and also go electric. originally found your Stonehenge site. saw this link on c.b.gitty, anyway this looked like a cool group. probably get a wiring harness, from your inventory eventually. and some day i might actually learn to play these things. lol
What instruments are you building or playing?
CBG's three / four strings for now
