I just can't stand the waiting.
It's the worst thing about building these instruments.
Last night, after posting a few updated pics of my third CBG, I managed to finish the instrument. The final step before closing the lid and stringing it up was to fire a blob of adhesive onto the neck and stick the piezo disk down, then encase the little sucker.
I know from experience that, until the adhesive fully cures, the vibrations from the guitar will not make it to the piezo. Goop doesn't transfer vibrations very well. If you plug it in too soon, you'll think something is wrong with your wiring.
So I wait.
I want so badly to session this little yellow box. It won't be ready until this evening.
I want to plug it in now.
