got my first CBG two weeks ago
ready to build one now thinking I should start with a kit the first time just to make sure of
whats what and then go from there?
I've got plenty of wood working experience and guitar knowledge, but brand new to this world.
Any suggestions on a kit?
Jeff in LA
ok. have most all the part assembled.
any tips on where to place the pick up underneath? have read too place it close to the bridge.
obviously with a neck running bow to stern it cannot be directly under the bridge. So, close?
Also, with a neck running all the way through, how do you place in a traditional , 'crocker type' of pu?
Notch the neck and place it in?
Thanks for the advice all.
You'll want to relieve the neck under the lid (a really wide dado) to allow the top to vibrate, should also give you room for a pickup.
great diagram man
will probably use on the next project
