Profile Information

Welcome to the Clubhouse! How did you hear about us?
CBG NATION ( and, actually, I''m lookin' at one of your "flat-bed" bridges on eBay right now....... that's where I found this link!)
What instruments are you building or playing?
Haven't started a build yet. Been collectin' "CBs" though!!
Ted, you've seen my Kinky Friedman box. (That will be a 6-string. I have a "strat-style" neck.....don't know if I'll use it on the KF box though, 'cause I just got a COHIBA "RED DOT") But neither will be my "first attempt". Gonna start simple! Probably a 3 stringer! Wish me luck! ( I got a 36" 1x2 poplar, several boxes, no tools, or space to speak of....no money, but by god I'm gonna do it! Was talkin' with John McNair down in PR, and he said all he had when he started was a pocket knife, and some sand paper! So......!)

Hi Michael, welcome to the Clubhouse! Glad you found us. We'll help you get thru your builds, tools or no tools. Find us in the chat room for lots of suggestions and real-time help. Also when you're ready I'll walk you through a bolt on neck for the KF box.

The focus here is on all types of handmade instruments. There are many helpful builders and players here and lots of Groups to teach and learn. We welcome participation so don't be shy.

Have a look around, introduce yourself in My Name Is... and add yourself to the Member Map. There's an active Chat Room where you can ask questions, offer help or just talk about anything with some great folks.

Most of all Have Fun!
