And a site my friend Shane Speal put together back in the day with more info. than you’ll ever come close to consuming. Ben at CBGitty continues with literally thousands of cbg enthusiasts world-wide, pics, how-to’s and a WIDE assortment of do-it-yourself, on-the-cheap to big bucks and major hours (like, think Les Paul Custom tricked out with all the trimmings and more with a cigarbox body…). Ben’s great CBGITTY shop has a vast assortment of gits, amps, parts, it’s truly just about all there. I check this site about 4 times per day:
