Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
My friend Jef Long invited me to join.
What instruments are you building or playing?
Building CBGs and playing them. Also a Martin six, a Strat, and an Ibanez hollowbody.

As you can see from my profile photo, I'm an 'ol' skool' pinstriper (50+ years) who has been lost in the 'fifties' for more years than I care to divulge.

But, CBGs are soon becoming my favorite passtime and hobby. This sure beats hell out of the corporate treadmill which occupied 45 years of my life. It was fun, but it wasn't real fun. This is real fun!
