Jennie – Our First CBG

“Jenny” was my first build. Unable to find a cigar box, I used a craft box from Michaels. The sound was quite good, great sustain, I got hooked and kept on building. Why “Jenny”? I was giving thought to giving each guitar a name and happened to be watching “Forrest Gump”, when the old man said to Forrest, “Boat’s gotta have a name, bad luck to have a boat without a name”. Jenny. Jenny is my go to CBG for performing at Farmer’s Markets and other volunteer events.
