Thanx for the comment Andries, I know for a fact that every video Glenn Watt does is in GDg tuning, which is the default tuning for CBG’s at the Nation. When in doubt check it with your tuner, chords are G/A/D?

thank you for the kind comment, iam new at this so i am experimenting with my project, I tried with springs on the inside box and took them off and then hollowed the neck to except the springs, don’t really hear the different but thinking if I put a pickup on the neck might sound differently, I’ll tell you how it sounds after the pick up is installed, stay cool,,,,,,,,,,its all good…..
