Hey folks.  Thinking of building a CBG bass and I have a question or 2. Does it matter what kind of magnetic pickup I put in it?  I mean is there one specific for basses?  Also, does the 3 or 4…Continue

Evening, from Chloride AZ.  Plans to build cherry wood neck on Bushmills box are on the bench.  Looking for ideas on strings, neck reinforcement .

That's really nice Phil. I like the idea of interchangeable "wings" to make it different when you feel like it.

The wiring and pickup choices sound interesting.

Comment by Phil Farabough on November 8, 2018 at 7:41am

This proto type is a hollow body cigat box bass with removable body " wings "that can be interchanged with other styles and its a tone monster! The piezo controls have bass mid and high eq plus choirs reverb phase and delay.
And the mag pu has a 5 band filter / boost.
And the blend pot mixes both signals. ...crazy !

Thanks for the add.
I've been very inactive for over a year in regards to building CBGs and I've decided to try my hand at building a bass.  I'll be lurking around trying to find some helpful info and ideas, and if I run into any problems I'm hoping you guys will help bail me out!

Okay, thanks Daniel.
