Thanks Ted, I feel very welcome. I posted some pictures and got some great responses. I`ve been playing guitar since I was 14 yrs, old. I worked in hi-tec manufacturing at NASA for over 30 yrs.( LOCKHEED MARTIN- SPACE SHUTTLE PROGRAM, MARS PATHFINDER ETC.) I just love planning and building these things. I call them" Playable Art". I`m currently working on #11, with many more to come.

Thank you so much. This is absolutely fantastic. I just recently started playing the guitar and enjoy wood working as well. Sounds like a solid fit.

Much appreciated.

IM MORE OF A BUILDER THAN A PLAYER..ABOUT 99% to 1%...I ENJOY MAKING SOMETHING THAT MAKES MUSIC.. ALWAYS ADMIRED PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE TALLENT TO PLAY INSTURMENTS ...IF THESE CBG'S CAN BE A GATEWAY FOR ANYONE WANTING TO LEARN TO PLAY ITS MY WAY TO CONTRIBUTE WITHOUT HAVING TO SPEND A WHOLE LOT OF MONEY ON A MANUFACTURED GUITAR

Hi Ted,

Do you have any down under pickups made? You told me a week ago that in about

a week I could order one from you.

Thanks,

Don Jensen

Thank you Ted. By the way do you make a thumpin' phat pup for a 2 string bass? Been thinking about an EMG but would love to have something hand wound. I'm all thumbs when it comes to electronics, even my soldering looks like it has been done by a poorly trained 3 toed sloth!

Thanks! I will participate but time is slipping thru my fingers at a great rate so for now I'll just say thanks for having me.

Thanks for the cake Ted :) The brain feels 22, the back screams 82, and I'm stuck in the middle somewhere!

Hello Ted,

I just signed up (signed on) to your website yesterday. I'm building my eighth CBG and I'm trying to upgrade to a CB Gitty humbucker with a tone and volume pot. I use a very simple floating bridge design using a piece of hardwood topped with a piece of fretwire. Do I need to ground the bridge. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask this question. Please redirect me if it is. I'm not only a novice electrician, I'm also a novice forum/chatroom participant. Many thanks from Taiwan. Jeffrey

Hey Ted,

Thank you for the kind welcome and information.

I'm new to instrument building having focused on vintage amplifier restoration and some custom builds. I'd appreciate your advice on the essential tools that I should purchase and suppliers - there are many online, however, you may know which provide the best quality, service and prices in your experience.

Thanks again and I look forward to participating to the clubhouse!

Best regards,

Conan
