Five piece Chicken Dinner…finger pickin’ good.

This three string with Chicken diagram painting, sounds every bit as good as it should…it is a nicely voiced acoustic, with a swampy sound indeed. The art hangs on the wall or plays in your hands equally as well….plus, a chicken dinner? sounds good to me.

Song Lyric Series of cigar box guitars…

I wanted to do some folk art type images on this series of acoustic cigar box guitars and was thinking and thinking about what to do…then it hit me…why not use some of my lyrics in the songs that I wrote on the cigar box guitar for my band, The Budrows…!!!So, here are a couple of lyrics, and the images to go with them…see if you can guess what song(s) they are from. SOLD

If you MAKE it, they will come…

The First Annual Mini Maker Faire (little brother the MAKER FAIRE, of MAKE Magazine Fame) last year in Irvine was such a great success, that they are doing it again this year in the summer of 2013. I had a booth of my hand-made cigar box guitars on display, as well as a hands on display for people to try them out for themselves…and to top it all off, LIVE music from us, The Budrows, to show people the foot stompin’ Delta Blues sound that these guitars are capable of. I did a limited edition series of 4 guitars with the Maker Bot Logo on them just for the faire. All in All, a great day…Can’t wait to do it again this year.

Gold Cohiba with toothpick frets

This was an early build that I used in my band The Budrows, from the start. I used the crap out of it, replaced the toothpick frets a couple of times, rebuilt the neck mounts, added a piezo and volume knob and taped it together. I just retired it in 2012. It’s seen a lot of action and has been a great guitar.
