"I am doing a set of three right now.  I started with picking the boxes.  They are all a little different, so I "assigned" a neck board to each one. Marked a box and neck 1, the next 2 etc.  Then everything can be done…"

Taffy Evans replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Routing necks in mass
"Hi Brent, my view is if you make your own box and settle on that as a standard, then yes you can do the same with necks, because all the fitting will be the same, especially with the same scale length.  With random boxes, I think you could only…"

Routing necks in mass

To save time on future builds, I was thinking about rough finishing about ten necks with rounded routed edges. Not knowing future box sizes and scale lengths, is it possible to finish all at same length close enough for a neck through build and not be too far off with routed edges into box?See More

"how is your bridge? Someone brought a build to one of our St Louis CBG clubs meetings. It almost sounded like a sitar with the amount of extra twang and overtones it was getting. it was his bridge. The strings were lightly touching the wood as they…"

Taffy Evans replied to Brent Kasl's discussion More twang and vibration
"Hi Brent, It's very hard to pin point a problem without having the instrument on the bench, or even seeing a photo of it. Vibration sounds either jump out at you when you start looking or can be very subtle and frustrating to locate. It's…"

More twang and vibration

No fret touching, slight V grooves in nut, no grooves on bridgeTrying to uncover more twang on another build, Can I have too much touching inside? Box lid is tight and solid but I question if the piezo disc covered in glue is too tight against the neck through? Should their be a slight gap between neck and where piezo disc sits? I rounded an area out but may not be deep enoughthanksSee More

JL replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Wiring dual speaker amp
"I did 2 of them as weekend projects, 1 with stepson, and 1 with stepgrandson, and we did the 2 speakers in series on both, turned out great.  And you can hear a difference in timber with the box open or closed."

Jerry Jordan replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Wiring dual speaker amp
"JL is 100% correct.,I tend to think of 16 and 8 ohm loads, but for a little Gitty amp he is spot on.,.most amps do not like a 2 ohm load unless they were designed that way.,.,.,cheers.,.,"

JL replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Wiring dual speaker amp
"I assume it is an amp board like in the gitty kit? it can handle a speaker load of 4-8 ohms, 1 or 2 of the gitty speakers in series.  wired in parallel and the speakers present a 2 ohm load and the board might cook with too small of a…"

Jerry Jordan replied to Brent Kasl's discussion Wiring dual speaker amp
"Or as an option wire them in parallel.,., For series wiring connect the + side of one speaker to the - side of the other speaker. This will leave you with one open + and one open - to connect to the amps output. For parallel wiring combine the -…"
