Favorite pickups and position?

Looking into my first build. Been thinking about pickups, especially humbuckers, as well as whether to mount bridge or middle or neck position. Just wondering what people have already experimented…Continue

Fix for low string slipping off fretboard?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Eliah Holiday Aug 10. 7 Replies

Bought my first CBG, all good except it appears the neck is too thin for 4 strings. The low string ( .42 gauge) is right on the edge of the fretboard, better near the nut but lines up right on the…Continue

This will be for a 4-string 25" scale electric CBG. Open G tuning. Learning to play 3 strings first before implementing the 4th. Seems light strings are most common for this application though some…Continue

Mini guitar case for CBG?

Started this discussion. Last reply by John Sawyer Aug 8. 7 Replies

Looking around guitar gear on the web I came across a mini travel guitar + gigbag case. That set off a lightbulb as I realized that a CBG is roughly the same size as these travel guitars. Anyone use…Continue

"Hi, don't forget that pickups are designed for a cetian position under the string, and are often marked (on the box anyway) neck, middle, bridge. This I imagine is due to the strings output at different points of the strings length so giving a…"

"Most 1 pickup guitars have them mounted in the middle. i actually like the sound.overall tone lies within your amp settings."

"I guess a pre-amp is another possibility. I'm leaning more towards a neck pickup placement as I plan for solo playing and like a solid rhythm sound. I was curious about mid position, seems uncommon. The Lace pickup seems like a good buy but…"

"Good reply about humbuchers from Mr Blue Rat. With my first build I experimented with a strat 6 pole single coil in various positions. I got pretty much what I expected from that, e.g. typical  "Tele" twang in bridge position, &…"

"Depends on what sounding you're looking for you. positioning a Piezo is one thing; it'll affect the volume and resonance depending on where its mounted inside the box or whatever the body is made of. An electric pickup depends more on its…"

Cause the Blue rat replied to Eliah Holiday's discussion Favorite pickups and position?
"Humbuckers!!! Any position. If your into just singing and playing then go for the neck to mid position. With the mid being more natural sounding. The bridge will give you more of a twang if that's what your into. Putting two in gives you the…"

Favorite pickups and position?

Looking into my first build. Been thinking about pickups, especially humbuckers, as well as whether to mount bridge or middle or neck position. Just wondering what people have already experimented with. First idea was a Lace pickup somewhere in the neck position, maybe add a piezo too with a switch. There are a lot of pickups out there and position and the kinda box you have I assume are all factors. What you like?See More

"I guess seeing different builds and approaches helps one refine their own technique. CBG are interesting because they are traditionally cheap homemade instruments but at the same time do require some craftsmanship and knowledge.  "

"I'm not inclined to speak poorly of other builders...but from this git pic it appears the builder doesn't play.  The string slots for the nut are too close to the edges, and the bridge as well, and seems to be off the centerline line…"

Do you plan to do a build? It's 75 percent fun and creativity and 25 percent frustration like when you realize your input jack wont work where you put it....and you have to relocate it
