Well, it has certainly been a while since I posted in here, and as many of you probably know we have added MANY great new products to our lineup.

 

We are very excited about the most recent additions, though: pre-made necks and fretboards made specifically for CBGs in our own shop!

 


All of the necks we offer have a nice angled headstock (scarf jointed), with various options from basic/plain to fully fretted with headstock extensions! We offer the necks in 4 woods at present: hard maple, white oak, cherry and peruvian walnut.

 

For the fretboards, we offer both slotted and fully fretted, in four beautiful and hard-to-find woods: white oak, Peruvian walnut, purpleheart and zebrawood.

 

The work that has gone into these fretboards, and especially the necks represent some of the most difficult parts of CBG building: scarf jointing, headstock extensions and fretting. These are great options for really bumping your special CBG up to the next level, without all of the hard work and special tools that it takes to do the job well. Now you can let C. B. Gitty take care of all of that for you, so that you can focus on the fun parts of building!

Great addition Ben!

You cant beat the price for these folks!

But one suggestion Ben, you need to include scale length/VSL information and provide some guidance for nut location for slotted or fretted neck blanks. I see that fingerboards are described as for 25" scale lengths and assume the necks are the same, but it could be clarified.

Thanks as always for your efforts!

Mark

Thanks for the feedback Mark. I do have the necks clearly marked/labeled before they ship out, as to nut and bridge location and scale length, but you are right I definitely need to have all of that in the listing too.
