String Height for my first build ??

Posted on March 29, 2009 at 12:51pm 2 Comments

Getin into my first Cigar Box Guitar build. What are thoughts on the typical starting point for string height? I'm starting to think about making the nut, and am wondering about height. I plan on using this 3 stringer mainly for slide, but I may also add frets.

Hello,
I have started a CBN group entitled, "How to Play CBG" It is my hope and intention to encourage the "Wealth of Talent" here on the Nation to share their knowledge and skill to further the CBG movement. Please consider contributing an instructional "video" link to this group. If you are a viewer seeking instruction, please feel free to write. If you have any suggestions or know other players who you think may want to post instructional "video" links, please contact me. Thank you for your interest and support, Keni Lee
