I guess it never dawned on me that maybe I should share this stuff...here's some guitars I built.

Guy asked me to build 2 guitars, one for his son and one for his daughter...both in their twenties. I made them around the same idea, but each one unique in its own right. They can scream the blues, but I'm not a big electric guy and am pretty remedial with the slide.

Nice! I've got 2 CBGs (one's a reso, with a uke cone in it) and I love them.

The first one was a gift, and I got the reso from ChickenboneJohn here in the UK. Resos are tricky, but he did a great job. If I decide to try making one myself (and I'm tempted) I will certainly get in touch about the cone. :)

chickenbonejohn is a danged stud...makes a good git and hes a mean player! He makes about 8/ week. You cant go wrong with that!

I'm just wondering, what's the tuning of a four-stringed guitar?

they do look and sound good!
