Hi Guy's just thought I'd share my latest build.
I think I posted this in the wrong place earlier, so I'll go again. Its a full acoustic with EQ and bridge pick up. I built it on the lines of building a full acoustic guitar, just to see if the extra thought an effort would make a difference in such a small square box when compared to my other CBG's.
I'm happy to report that I find it does. Volume is up, but more importantly it has a good even response across all strings. I now have a nice loud solid bass that compliments the treble strings when playing thumb/fingerstyle slide. It's has more of a woody quality tone than all string sounding.
The top and back are book matched and pretty thin, maybe 2mm and have braces inside. the sides are also thin 2.5-3mm The top is Cedar and back and sides are Black Wattle. Neck is Maple and f/board rosewood.
Peghead overlay, bridge and soundhole surround are also Black Wattle. Nut and Saddle are bone.
All tone woods are quarter sawn as are the spruce braces inside. Binding around the top is Rosewood with marquetry inlays. Inlay also goes around the sides.
I think I stuffed this post up. Never mind enjoy
