Fret wire height

Started this discussion. Last reply by Angry Rooster Guitars Dec 24, 2016. 15 Replies

I've built about 20 CBGs and I'm wondering what size fret wire everyone seems to like the best. I don't recall what size I'm using, but I believe it's a taller/wider wire. I'm thinking a smaller wire…Continue

"Jerry, I agree. This box is small but it's a nice sturdy box. Didn't seem like there was any fiber junk or even plywood. Just real solid wood!"

"Guys, this has all been very helpful. I am now a wiser cbg builder. My first instinct was too use lighter gauge strings, but now that I've processed all of this in my mind, it all makes sense. Thanks again!"

"Putting a capo or fretting any position on the fretboard only changes pitch and not string tension. The tension when tuning to the set pitch stays the same. The tension on the strings of a 25.5" scale and a 20" scale are just not the…"

"I built a 19.1" scale red oak box with a teak top and maple neck to fit in a Mandolin gig bag.  It is tuned G2D3G3 with .052"w, .032"w and .022" Ernie Ball strings tensioned to 20.0#, 17.0# & 14.3#.  This is a great…"

"Rooster, I believe you are a good builder.  Your stuff looks great.  Of the answers here, JL kind of thought the way I do and was direct in one answer, telling you to use 6, 5, 4 - the big three strings from a six pack.   That…"

JL replied to Angry Rooster Guitars's discussion 20" scale string gauge
"25.5" scale EADGBE capo at 5th fret gives you ADGCEA at the same tension 19.10" scale (5th fret of a 25.5" scale) same strings tightened to identical tension gives you the same ADGCEA. So I would select strings #6, #5,…"

Paul Craig replied to Angry Rooster Guitars's discussion 20" scale string gauge
"I wasn't saying that a capo changes the tension. I said those notes at the 5th fret are higher than the regular tuning and trying to tune a short scale guitar to those notes would most likely break the strings because of the higher tension.…"
