Ep 59 Try Something Different but be Original.

In this episode Mark and I discuss how cool it is that there are so many different builders out there doing cool things with their builds. Using ideas from a variety of other builders is a great way to develop your own style and create your own masterpiece. However, just be sure to not copy someone's hard work exactly and pass it off as an original. CBGs can look somewhat similar at times but there are so many different things you can do with a CBG to make it your own. Also don't be afraid to share great ideas with our community. If someone uses your idea that is a really cool compliment. Also a huge shout out to a young fella, Jack, who picked up his first CBG from me about a year ago. Along with his siblings, he is creating a real storm in his local community with his band 'HOLLOW POINT'. His playing is INSANE!! The future of rock looks good! Real Good! Once again, big thanks to our Podbean Patrons, followers on podbean and friends over at 'The Cigar Box guitar Builder' Facebook Group. Stay safe and keep building, Adam and Mark www.birdwoodguitars.com www.cbgemporium.com https://swampwitchguitars.weebly.com/ https://www.junksville.com/

Ep 58 How Much is it Worth?

In this episode Mark and I (Adam) discuss why some CBGs are worth a lot of money. Some CBGs are worth well over the 1K mark and we chat about some reasons for this. Along with the usual craziness that usually happens when we talk shop, we provide a word of warning about shop safety and cool tools. This weeks 'STAR GUITAR' was built by Group Member Tim Henderson. Apologies if the sound is a bit off this week. I've been having tech issues. A huge thank you to our followers, you guys are ACE!!! Another enormous thank you and hugs to our Podbean Patrons. Your support is greatly appreciated.

Episode 55 Rob Wrobel

This week I have a chance to speak with Rob Wrobel from Rob's Cigar Box Guitars. We discuss his building history and what happened with Lace Pickups. Remember that this interview including Rob's explanation of what happened and my personal views are just that. We don't have any input from Lace at this point. Either way Rob is certainly not letting this hold him back and he has already moved on.
