I've built a few electric guitars and a 5e3 clone valve amp so now I'm building a CBG and matching CBA. I have the cigar boxes (Cohiba) and an old 24.75" scale length neck in my collection.

I have all thge parts ready and have starting marking up (pics attached). 

Will usexa couple of piezo pups under the bridge and blended with a humbucker in the neck position. The amp will use a Ruby variation. Searching for a high quality, suitable speaker driver to fit the box whilst providing a decent frequency response.

Starting pics attached.

They are good pickups. Those Gold Foil clones either have the Ceramic or Alnico magnets instead of the rubberized magnets like the originals, but they sound close and a lot more affordable. ;)
