Richard Dean replied to Lennox Gavin's discussion 4 string
"Read the entire "tuning and string choice" link I previously posted, they give a couple options best suited, and if you want a higher tone, rather than trying to tune the one of the other strings to do this, buy a set of light or Hybrid…"

"E B E Ab Check out Shane here---> Shane Speal Check this out --> tuning and string choice since that only shows 3 string tuning for open "E", use an unwound B string and back off to a A flat This is just one of a few ways to do it"

CBG Tabs

So you built your CBG and now you need something to play on it, right? Well, if you're not completely musically inclined or can't read traditional music, tabs are your answer. If you're like me, you read tabs and sometimes make them. Paste'em here.

Thomas "Duck" Petry replied to Lennox Gavin's discussion placement of nut grooves
"When using threaded rod for the nut, I center the middle string and just try and space the outer strings between 1/2" and 9/16" out."

The Phrygian Kid replied to Lennox Gavin's discussion placement of nut grooves
"I do the outer ones first, get em as close to the edges as you can but so they can still be fretted right the way up, then try to fit the rest evenly in betweenn"

 all these were 1 1/2 x  1 1/2 x 36 they are one piece, meaning the heal is integrated, the piece of wood you see on the bottom inside the box is just to reinforce   where the neck was cut deep for the pickup to clear , again good luck with your project !!!

 last link was just my page sorry, here is another example 

At 8:18pm on May 1, 2013, James said…

http://www.cigarboxnation.com/photo/guitar-4a?context=user   this is a 1 1/2 " x1 1/2"  2x2 

 x36 like you are talking about, i used a table saw and a jigsaw to cut  this, using table saw with dado blade to remove inside material, and jig saw carefully to do curves,  much better than using a 3/4 stock, stronger , http://www.cigarboxnation.com/profile/James184,  good luck !!!    many ways to do it
