CBG pickup blues

Posted on November 4, 2015 at 8:04pm 2 Comments

I attempted to build a CBG and adding a pickup for some sound but I had some snags. Cutting into the neck to install a pickup just seems to take a lot of strength out of the neck and even though it is probably fine for a 3 string I am having issues getting the height right. Does anybody reccomend a thinner pickup that works well or a good design for the neck cut? Thanks

I hear ya, I have one I just built that came out better than I expected too. Built it using a Cohiba box and it has a unique sound. I build mostly slides because that seems to be what everybody wants around here.

Greetings Billy!  thx for the comment on the Bull Run 5 string CBG.  It is a great guitar!  I actually didn't build it, i play it.  It was built by Bull Run CBG.
