If you buy one of those preferred necks from MGB , let me know how it works out….getting ready to head to China for 2 weeks, so not much time before trip to work on guitars

Thanks for the comment Uncle John, Best thing about the bridges, easy to make and adjustable.

Thanks for the feedback on my latest build. You posted before I completed the details, so I could not get back to your comments via the email links. The yellow parts do seem to contrast nicely with the darker wood color. The winding sound holes are intended to be the outline of my version of a violin bass body. Trying something different visually.

Hey John,

This may be a duplicate reply, I'm refamiliarizing my self with this site, I took a long break from cbgs but now that I'm retired I have more time for building! I do tune gdgb, I've learned a lot of songs in that tuning but maybe I'll experiment soon.

No Uncle John those are Medium-high frets, I think it is the dark color that makes them stand out. Thank you for your comments.

Thanks for the nice comment, Uncle John.  I enjoyed your version too.  It's one of my favorite traditional blues songs.

Check out my newest added photo of my "boxolin."  Guess I 'been-there-done-that.  I took a lot of tinkering to get it to work right.
