    A picken project

    Well I have been doing to much running around lately and haven't posted any pictures of what I have been building. So here goes
    This is what I have been spending my shop time on and I must tell you I am having a BLAST. I even starting taking Guitar lessons so I could demonstrate them if I go to a show.
    The strum sticks are made of Hard Maple, Walnut and Cedar. and Cherry, Cypress and Walnut
    The Cigar Box guitars necks are Walnut, Cherry, Oak (both red and white) and Maple.
    The fret markers and made with guitar picks and a hole punch.

    Now here's the deal 2 of the CBG's have a fault that I don't want to redo. So the first 2 people that can tell me what is wrong with them will get one of them. First person gets first pick. You must tell me what is wrong with them by PM I will let everyone know what the problem is after its done.

    Beautiful! Some of those look pretty similar to the martin backpackers.

    Whats the story behind the dollars on some of the CB's? Boy those all look great!

    Really great looking guitars and strum sticks. I've made one strum stick. They are fun and I almost pick a tune out on one. I love the wood combos on yours. Great Brick House, I love that box. My son's guitar instructor wants me to make one for him and I think when I get to it that is the box I will use.

    Nice work!

    Oh I sent you a PM. I know Ted beat me, but I wanted to see if I picked up on the correct thing (ah I mean incorrect thing).

    Well Ted got it first Then Darren. Paul and Brent got it at the same time.
    For those of you that want to know the 2nd and 4th one have the fret markers on the wrong fret.

    So Ted gets first pick and Darren gets the second one

    Now the 2nd box is set up for picking and the 4th is set up for slide.
    Ted send me your choice and address and Darren just send me yer address as you just get whats left

    Jay,
    Even with the fret markers wrong, there's a lot of work in those CBG's. Thank you so much for your generosity.
