They can inspire a person musically to take a simple approach and allows them to speak from their hearts. They can also bring us back to a time where ingenuity, hard work and passion was what was needed for our forefathers to create these little powerhouses's.
After much research on finding someone to sell me one, I came across DB Customs, and Mister Darren Brown. Low and behold, he lives in Canada...well, I said to myself...self, order yourself one..chop chop.
Not knowing what I did not know, and after a few chat's with Darren, I ended up getting a complete custom, one of a kind left CBG. Shamefully, I suppose, I have not named her, however it never occured to me that I should of..oh the shame..
I got her a few days after Christmas and like my buddy Mario, I felt like a kid in the candy store... and once unwrapped I disappeared into the basement with CBG in hand and plugged her into my Marshall AS50D Acoustic Amplifier (Which I highly recommend)
Seems like I ended up spending the rest of the evening down there, staring at this new work of art, plucking one string at a time and feeling each fret as if I knew what I was doing. I ended up making at least six or seven videos that night and posted a few (Especially for Mario. I think I was trying to be a CBG Pusher) and I have to say. This little gem certainly ranks up there with my other "guitars" and I have to say, I do look forward to the day I can play her with as much confidence and grace as some other players out there like Mr. Justin Johnson.
I enjoy my CBG so much that I went seeking some inexpensive cigar boxes and happened to find 18 or so of them near home and so this winter of 2015 I will attempt to manufacture myself a few different styles and see how I fair and I will be sure to share pictures regardless of if the project is a success or not.
Here is the Video of Darren giving her a test run before shipping my new pride and joy to me.
