From reading several build plans and designing my first CBG I want to place electronics inside that I ordered from Gitty supply. Should be here today. I am wonder if it best to secure the lid in someway other than glue that all the plans are saying to do. I am unsure if glue is the best way with electronic inside. Could I reinforce the inside corners and screw the lid down? Or would this take away from the sound of the box? Wondering how best to go at this, for future maintenance on the electronics. Any advise would be helpful how best to attack this.
yup . screw the lid . or;:
-make back access panel .
or -make front access panel .(mount controls on a removable panel ) (like a tele )
or -glue the lid . screw the back .
I second gluing in corner blocks and screwing the lid into them. Works great. Helps keep the lid from vibrating too.
I did wood burn the fret lines in. Also added the Gitty piezo setup and some brass sound holes.
Need to add a strap for it. Why I put the hole up at the top. May or may not good for that or just for wall hanging.
Thanks for the tip on screw support. Much appreciate it.
use metal corners. that's what I use.
This may be late, but I wouldn't glue any top, since repairs to anything inside, including the electronics will be impossible. I use screws wherever needed. I have only built eight so far, but am "gaining ground".
