Rooling out CBG

took my 3-string cbg to the club i play at and did "Statesboro Blues" on it. No one had ever seen a cigar box guitar. Not that my build is anything special but they were really amazed Then after they all commented on the sound that came out of it. A pieso pick-up but was played thru a pre-amp. Am pleased with 1st outing.

You Guys!

Playing is such a blessing but building is such a gift.  My father came over after WWII from Italy.  He escaped a concentration camp and fought in the underground for our side. Proud of em.  He was such a great self taught carpenter.  He saw things in his mind and just made them.  If he needed a tool he made it.  Then there was me. 

  His boy, i guess, could play guitar but could hammer a nail about as good as a drunk trying to pee straight in a bar urinal.  Wet Pants Syndrome!  You…
