"Haven't a clue - probably because you play more chords and the thin end so you have to reach less, but that's a guess..."

"Well, this might not matter as much but if I was gonna use hot glue ( or any glue for that matter ) I would make sure to scuff up the inside of the box, on the spot your gonna glue it. If it's too slick the piezo could come loose. Just sayin"

First ever build

Posted on November 29, 2017 at 5:25pm 4 Comments

As of 1 hour ago I have officially completed my FIRST EVER build.

The last time I built literally anything was when I made a box as part of my technology GCSE coursework - a box with countless nails sticking out and faux-fur matted with black paint. A box that broke no less than 4 industrial staplers and a saw in order to complete. A box that has meant I have been labelled as someone with no craft ability for about 13 years!!

I started on 08/11/17, and worked a couple…

I suggest you keep that first build simple.  A one string diddley or a classic fretless 3.  Check out knotlenny's CBG 101 for a great starter lesson.  Google it or find it at page top under resources/ how to play.  Good wishes.

Holly, I like your computerized plans for CBGs.  They put me in a building mood.  It's good to have you for a CBN friend.
