I have built a couple of cbg's now acoustic with piezo pick ups, through neck with cut outs.
Was thinking of going the next step and building one with a "humbucker" or some form of magnetic pick ups as in "normal" guitars.
Now do i make it semi acoustic with pick ups or make the 'box" more solid type with more bracing?
Does any one have pics of internals during build? And any building tips.whats best seal box? or leave it to close with latches? does this effect sound on these type of builds?
Thanks in advance for your comments
thanks for input,
so what make a CBG sound different to a "normal" guitar if you make it solid or fully braced and run humbuckers etc? please excuse my ignorance as only new to all this musical qualitys of guitars etc.
Can understand the acoustic of the "box" with a peizo pick up ok. So is it more about the Style for "full electrics set ups"?
To fix the lid down I use decorative hinges because even with 8 gauge electric strings the tension starts to bow the lid a bit and this way it is easy to open the lid later if needed.
