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.
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
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!
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
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!
Hello Ted,thanks for the fantastic resource youve made available,the room of Earth becomes bright and cosy with room for all when sharing is the entrance bell!I love the aesthetic of your work and am keen to learn about winding some pickups and building some beautiful unique and accessible instruments,harmonic resonance,Dig
