Lets keep this open until Wed Feb 25, at 10:00 pm EST.

Rules of auction:

- please do not bid if you are not going to honor the bid.
- winning bid should be sent to the site (the donate button at bottom, or contact Uncle Jesse through PM if you do not want to do paypal)
- you will need to contact Pyewacket through PM to work out delivery.
- Pyewacket has asked that this be a limited to CA or US (sorry international folks, but unless you can convince him otherwise, if you are not from one of these locations, then please do not bid).
- Bids are in USD.
- these rule may change (would happen quickly), if there are any other things Pyewacket needs to add. but the overall items in these rules are probably pretty fixed.
- <edit> Pyewacket will pay for US/CA shipping and packing of the item.


PS, I am bidding $60.00

Jimbo, do you have a US address?? Your address listed on under your avatar suggests otherwise.

If someone lives in Antarctica, but HAS a someone with a US shipping address they could ship to, then I see no reason why they could not participate.

When Pyewacket originally presented this idea, he also mentioned he would cover all packing and shipping costs. I have added that to the rule. So now that you know this, bid without having to concern yourself with covering that cost.

I figured there might be a adjustment or 2 to the rules. Well that makes one (for the betterment of the bidder). I hope that is it.

I have such a someone. And will pay in Green US currency. But the bidding is far from over, so I can only hope this stays within my price range. Beautiful instrument, and a great cause.

That is one sweet sound. BUT I think there is a hell of a better pickup on that CBG than we have here. Likely, if someone buys this one, and wants to change the electronics to something more stage ready, that I bet they could get it to be as stage ready as that one. That was a hell of a great sound that guy could strum out. Also, that one was a 4 string, while this one is a 3 string (I do not play, so am not sure what that means). I really think the the CBG done here is really wonderful.

$175
