I am new to CBG, starting my second build. I like the doubled melody string of lap dulcimers and am considering stringing my new build the same way - gdgg.
Trussrods, I use them in any guitar with more than 3 strings and on all bass guitars.
A trussrod can be a adjustable rod or a non-adjustable rod which I've used on all my CBG's.
Of course it all depends on what wood you are using and how hard it is and how likely it is to bend under string pressure.
Acoustic is what I'm looking at.
Thanks Sam. I looked for Shane's videos but didn't find them. Did find some old ones with an electric CBG. Sounded nice.
Sounds great, I want to try and may double the bass GGdg. How are you and/or others measuring the distance on nut and bridge for the two strings opposed to the other single strings. I know there are no rules, but I figured you might use the dulcimer spacing?
