Thanks Ted. Yes sorry I abandoned you. Had so much sh*t to deal with over last few years and this just went right on the backburner. Nice to know you guys are still around though. Maybe I should start dropping in here again. I haven't built any cbgs for a few years, too many people into it now and no demand for mine. Got other interests too which are taking up my creative time.

Thanks Ted. I found the wiring diagram I need on one of the posts on the forum, and I'll be practicing soldering with lots of bits of scrap wire before I start trying to solder in the pots and pickup!

Thanks for the virtual birthday cake, Ted :-)

Getting to the end of my solid-body recycled wood mandola build now - mostly just the pickup to fit and wiring to do (which will be a learning experience!). I'll post some pics when it's completed.

Thanks for the comment on "Swanky", Ted. It does have a great tone.

Thanks Ted. Another year older, but probably none the wiser.

Thanks Ted.  I guess this is a landmark year, turning 70.  My grand daughter says that people are old when they turn 70.  Spoken with the wisdom of her mid teen years.  She turns 16 in June.

Hi Ted thanks for the request. I am in the uk, near Coventry, i am 67 yrs young, and have been playing since i was 11.

Hoping to get the hang of it soon, i play mainly blues,i,m retired now so im setting up to build some cbg,s to keep me occupied. Although I am a bit slow as i only have one good hand, at the moment, and its not the one i normally use lol.

I had a major op on my cervical spine at the back end of last year, and unfortunately it left me with the thumb and 2 fingers of my right hand totally numb.

So haven,t been able to play but im gonna try to tape a thumb pick to my hand until i can hopefully get it sorted out.

I am on my first build,a 3 string cigarbox with an oak neck, which i am finding it tough to work with. i sorted out a router and table, but its a steep learning curve, it snatched a few times, i now know about the direction lol, ive got loads of tools but never used a router before. Ive ordered a router trimmer which i hope will be easier for me.

Take Care will keep you posted.

Regards Phil
