  1. New to CBG, just purchased one, didn’t realize how much fun it could be to build one.

  2. Very good video. I am on my 1st cigar box guitar and getting ready to string and tune up the first home built guitar. I am having loads of fun. Building is fun, learning to play is going to be challenge. Thanks for all your help..
