So I'm getting ready to fret my first CBG build. It would seem I have several choices. C.B. Gitty sells it in several sizes. A local music place sells it in about 25 different sizes. Not being a player myself, I don't have a preference on size. So what is a good size for general use?

medium/medium is what they suggested to start with. just ordered a pound from gitty's today should show n up sat or monday to in/ill border. always quick deliveey from him

I like the low/narrow, but I make smaller instruments. I started with the medium and migrated down.

 

The great thing about Gitty is you can get small quantities for just a build or two and try them on for size.

Justin - as Mark said, medium/medium is pretty much the perfect size for a standard guitar.

Here is a link to mine. If you find it cheaper anywhere, I'd like to know about it! http://www.cbgitty.com/cubecart/index.php?act=viewProd&productI...
